Printable Summary: Encaustic en Plein Aire
Join Kathryn in this rare and unique opportunity to paint the landscape en plein aire using the encaustic technique of painting with pigmented beeswax. This workshop allows you to be inspired by the beautiful scenery of Linwood Gardens, while also working with a painting style ideal for creating depth and beautiful texture evocative of a natural setting. No experience necessary, as Kathryn will guide you step by step in a variety of easy application processes ideal for the encaustic process. You will not only treasure the experience, but will enjoy creating a true, one of a kind, piece of art. In case of inclement weather the class will have to be cancelled and all monies refunded.
All materials will be provided including a light lunch and snack.
