Photo Encaustics Workshop WITH DONNA HANSON


12:00 PM – 5:00 PM

$85 + $40 Supply Fee

Class Limit: 10 Students


If you want to create a unique painting that draws people in, this class is for you. In this class, Donna Hanson will guide you through the process of incorporating photos printed on tissue paper into a textured encaustic base.

This is an intermediate class where we will review the application and fusing of the wax surface. We will then take it further and use other tools to create unique textured surfaces which we will enhance with colour through the application of encaustic paint, oil sticks, and other media. In this 1-day workshop, you will complete a 10 x 10” photo encaustic painting.

You must have a working knowledge of encaustic painting or have taken a class with Donna previously.
