For Ages 7 and up. Free admission.

This workshop is a fun introduction to encaustics, a way of combining wax, glues and color together to create a painting. The encaustic medium is made with natural, unbleached beeswax and a natural resin which will be prepared in advance and painted onto a wooden surface. Participants will inscribe designs into the boards and then enhance them by adding colored mediums such as oil pastels. A light amount of heat will be added to fuse the colors into the design, which will produce an ethereal effect. This magical medium is age-old and dates back to the ancient Roman Egyptian times.

Please RSVP to programs [at] berkeleyartcenter.org.

She has taught encaustic workshops and college courses in Napa, Marin, Sonoma and in Mendocino at the Art Center.
