Art Instruction

 

Encaustic wax painting classes are now available in Loudoun County! Learn basic to advanced encaustic and mixed media techniques in a friendly, relaxed environment at Anne Stine Fine Art studio in Purcellville, VA!

There are now three classes available each covering a different encaustic technique, as well as how to use encaustics safely, set up supplies, and care for encaustic art. Take one or all three to develop your encaustic skills. Not sure which one is for you? Just contact me to learn more about each class. (16 to adult, 6 seats available)


Encaustics: Collage Techniques

Learn the basics of creating encaustic artwork by applying mixed media collage to the wax surface.  Students will practice techniques and complete a 8″x8″ encaustic collage mixed media painting on cradled wood panel in class. (Students may bring papers, fabric and others collage materials to use in their original artwork. Check with me if you have a questions about materials.) All supplies included. No painting experience necessary. This is a great class for beginners and artists looking to explore this exciting medium. (16 to adult, 6 seats available, 3 hrs.) $89
