In this two-part introductory workshop attendees will receive hands on instruction from artist and photographer, Angela Casagrande on the art of encaustics and photography. Encaustic painting is the use of heated beeswax in which colored pigments are added. The heated beeswax may then be applied to any surface. It is an incredibly flexible medium that may be combined with collage, oil, paints, inks, dry media and photography. The history of encaustic painting dates back to ancient times and still maintains it popularity to this day in contemporary art. Day 1: Oct. 19, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Day 2: Oct 20, 9 a.m. to 12 noon
