“Try It!” classes are a FUN way to try something new! Just 2 ½-hours on a Friday night, and no supply list:  it adds up to a fun night with a friend or a great date night – or just come by yourself and make some new friends!


This class has been so popular - we’ve added a new date. You can also sign up for Tracy’s full day of encaustics: Mixed Media Encaustics on October 12.

Collage is a super-fun way to create a mixed media artwork. Tracy brings in lots of cool papers and other ephemera for you to use! In this 2 ½-hour “Try It!” class, you will experience how wonderful melted beeswax (aka encaustic) is to work with. You’ll leave with a finished encaustic painting that is made with several layers of wax and papers.

In this class, you will first create a collage using acrylic gel medium. Next, learn how to layer pure natural beeswax over it starting with a foundation layer. You will learn how to construct encaustic layers correctly by fusing. Tracy demonstrates each step along the way. This is a great beginner class to learn proper technique for success in all other encaustic techniques!


Specifics you’ll get in Beeswax & Collage:

  • Collage

  • Beeswax foundation layer

  • Layering more collage into layers of wax.

  • Add pan pastel as a final touch.

  • Choice of 8x8 or 6x12 painting

Remember, in our "Try It!" classes, you don't have to go shopping to purchase any art supplies!  All the supplies are included in the supply fee - just bring cash or a check made payable to the instructor on the evening of your fun class!
