Virtual Studio Workshop: Laura Moriarty: Encaustic Arts Past and Future
Encaustic paintings from ancient Egypt are still on view today. What makes their colors so vibrant and marks so expressive? Learn how to begin painting with wax from a modern master of the technique, Laura Moriarty, a painter and sculptor whose innovative approach takes the medium to new expressive heights. This virtual workshop consists of two 90-minute sessions (Saturday, March 6 and 13, 1:30–3 pm each day).
Suggested Supply List
• Skillet or griddle for melting wax
• Heat gun or small torch for fusing
As with all virtual workshops, you may choose to purchase supplies and work along with the artist, or you may simply observe to decide if this is a medium you would like to pursue in the future.
