Linda Lenart McNulty-Luminous Encaustics
9:00 - 4:30
Sunday - March 17

[back to quicklinks]
$ 155  

Wait until you see how deliciously easy encaustic painting can be. In this workshop we start by building up creamy layers of encaustic wax. Then, after our senses have been opened by the sensuous aroma, we will take out our deep black charcoal sticks, and draw and smudge with loose lines and free spirits. A last layer of vibrant oil paint smudging, and your encaustic work will stand up to those old Flemish painters and sing! Ok, we’re not sure what that tune will be- but sing we will! Come join the Luminous Encaustic Studio on the Road, and experience what real encaustic painting feels like.

Materials Fee $35 payable to instructor at beginning of class includes:
encaustic medium, R&F pigment sticks, oil paint, encaustic brushes, paper, charcoal sticks, graphite sticks, pastel, oil pastel, use of shared griddles, skillets, and torches, and a variety of encaustic tools.

Supplies Needed to bring for Class:

1. 4 wood painting boards (cradle boards are nice), 8”x8” or dimensions you like, not to big
2. A few sheets of paper towel for clean up
3. Quite a few pairs of Nitrile gloves
4. Wax paper for taking paintings home

Most of the required supplies for your classes can be pre-ordered from Collage. They will be ready and waiting for you to pick up when you arrive at the retreat. For further info and to place your order, contact:
