DESCRIPTION:

Many students have taken Tracy's Renegade Encaustics classes over the years. Students love her novel approach to encaustics, with her out-of- the-box (or "renegade") way of creating art from this wonderful medium. Up until now, this has been a quick "get-your- feet-wet" approach, just 2 1/2 hours of great fun and learning on a Friday evening, moving quickly through various methods and techniques. And her students have begged for MORE!

So here it is: a FULL day of encaustics with Tracy! Whether you've taken a fun "Try it!" class on a Friday night, or you've never taken an encaustic class before - or even if you have done encaustics with other instructors - this will be a great workshop for exploring more deeply Tracy's new and fun techniques!

What is encaustic? It's creating art with melted, pigmented beeswax! This ancient medium is experiencing a major resurgence. This workshop is an opportunity to experiment with not only a smorgasbord of encaustics, but also with all kinds of supplies and tools from ARTspot with Tracy! All your supplies are included in the $40 supply fee.

Spend the day learning and having fun! This is a true smorgasbord of a class, especially designed to let you experience a variety of techniques available to you in this super versatile medium. Tracy will show you how to utilize stencils to create texture and patterns with wax. And she will put out lots of art supplies for two fun mixed media projects!

In this 1-day workshop, you will learn how to create interesting textures for the wax to “grab on to.” The first board will have heavy texture; the second project starts with a collage. As the day progresses, Tracy will walk you through techniques to add layers of wonderful wax colors and textures to each of the boards. You will leave with two finished projects to show your friends!
