ENCAUSTIC PAINTING CLASS STARTIS AT REC CENTER ON DECEMBER 2

An introduction to Encaustic Painting will be taught at the Harvey Milk Center from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday, December 2. Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves adding colored pigments to heated beeswax. The word encaustic originates from the Greek word enkausticos, which means to burn in.

This one-day class will cover a brief history of the medium, the diversity of encaustic painting, explanations of tools and materials, techniques used, visual references and a hands-on approach. Each student will complete two unique pieces of art. Students will need to bring collage materials including photographs and two-dimensional personal keepsakes (can be photocopied). All other materials will be provided. This workshop is open to all painting and art making skill levels.

The complete catalogue of classes is available online  or you can pick it up in the lobbies of the Rec Center and Photo Center. Registration for Winter 2018 classes begins on Saturday, December 16. Recreation and Parks offers scholarships to eligible individuals and families. More than $1 million in scholarships in Rec and arks programs has been provided. Ongoing eligibility is dependent on attendance record. Please call Lillian Bautista, Scholarship Coordinator, at (415) 831-2717 for information on how to qualify.
