VA201 - Birds & Beeswax

$ 150  


In this class, we’ll build a beautiful, colorful, layered background on a wood panel and add texture and dimension with collage, ephemera, and found objects to create a work of art that delights the senses: visual, tactile, and aromatic! Beeswax is a lovely media to use to adhere collage elements and to give your artwork a little something extra. We’ll use it as our main adhesive and have fun discovering it’s unique properties. If you’ve never used beeswax in your art before, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to use to build beautiful, translucent layers and how it enhances your artwork, giving it a unique texture and fragrance. Beeswax is so versatile! We’ll collage with it, add color to it, create textures and use it to seal our artwork.
