Painting with an encaustic pen is a quiet meditation on process and discovery. It favors patience and deliberateness. Students will experience the slow build-up of wax, stroke by stroke, layer upon layer, adding colors bit by bit and carefully mixing them directly on the panel. This method lends itself especially well to working on a small surface. The encaustic painters of Greece, who developed this process, seldom made pictures larger than the average head.

Students will be provided small wooden surfaces, the pen tools, colored beeswax and lots of inspiration for your forays into this popular technique.
