Ku-ring-gai Art Centre has a brand new encaustic painting class. Learn this layered oil paint and wax painting technique with a professional artist Rachel Carroll.

Mondays, 9am - 12pm

This class is an introduction to mixed media and encaustic work. Encaustic dates back to 800 BC Egypt and works well as a medium with oil paints. It is great for printmakers and photographers as well as anyone who loves using mixed media but doesn't want to frame under glass. Many materials will be and used (ink, collage, frottage, charcoal and acrylic). Encaustic is a very versatile wax medium that enhances any surface and blends well with mixed media compositions on board to create amazingly layered and luminous work.
