Join Kerstin Davis on Saturday, August 22, from 4 to 6pm at the Arts Resource Center [ARC] for a “laid back” introduction to encaustic. She’ll cover how to make the medium and add pigment, then go over layering and fusing of encaustic, carving, and embedding. Each participant will have studio time with material cost included to experiment creating their own painting. Beginners encouraged. $40. Please email, or call 828.682.7215 to register.
