Introduction to Encaustic Painting with Deborah Kapoor

Saturday, February 18  |  10am-4pm  |  BIMA Classroom  |  $130, includes all materials


Encaustic painting is an ancient medium of beeswax, damar resin, and pigment recognized for its resplendent surface and rich color. Paint is fused together with heat, creating an enamel-like finish. 

In this one day workshop, you will gain a thorough set of skills, as well as tips for setting up a safe studio space at home! No prior experience required. Tuition includes basic materials and tools. Individual encaustic workstations are provided with heat plates, heating tools, and encaustic paint.

Deborah Kapoor is best known for her unconventional, mixed media paintings and wall installations with strong conceptual elements about the distilled poetry within cultural markers. Merging painting and sculpture with any process necessary as a vehicle for content, her painted dimensional works have been exhibited widely.
