ENCAUSTING PAINTING FOR KIDS AND TEENS

 Encaustic Paint & Collage Workshops will be offered to kids 9-12 years old on May 12 from 12-3 p.m. and teens 13-19 years old on May 5 from 12-4 p.m.  Both are one day courses offered at the Harvey Milk Center for the Arts. The word encaustic originates from the Greek word enkausticos, which means to burn in. Heat and pigment infused beeswax are necessary for a painting to be called encaustic.

Both classes 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. Students will learn many techniques that kids can do. 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. The workshops are open to all painting and art making skill levels and no experience is necessary.
