May 5, 2021 “Treasured,” encaustic collage by artist Nanci Hersh, Rehoboth Art League instructor.
Rehoboth Art League will offer a class on the ancient technique of encaustic painting from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, May 15.
Artist Nancy Hersh will lead the six-hour workshop, which will give an overview of pigmented wax with a focus on experimentation using a variety of methods, tools and mixed media collage. Participants will learn the fundamentals of working in this popular medium and will have a chance to explore multiple techniques including fusing, incising, photo transfers and collage.
Through demonstration, discussion and hands-on exploration, students will come away with an encaustic painting or paintings and be able to continue working on their own. The class size will be limited to fewer than 10 participants; social distancing and all other CDC guidelines will be followed. The cost of the class is $100 for members and $135 for nonmembers.
