Encaustics Art Workshop for Kids

This hands-on Encaustic workshop for kids is great for making Holiday Gifts!

Encaustics is the art of hot wax painting.

You might wonder, what does wax have to do with photography? Potentially, quite a lot if you ask instructor Margot Hartford.

She has developed her own technique incorporating photographic imagery into her encaustic pieces to make one of a kind artwork.

The basic techniques of encaustic are tactile, easy, and fun for kids. Your kids will love the different looks that can be achieved – from dreamy to abstract to retro – there are no limits!

* During the photography portion of this kids art workshop, youth photography instructor Constance Chu will work with students ages 11–14 on mobile phone photography and editing. The group will take a local photo walk, and return to The Image Flow to begin editing their images in Snapseed. The goal of this session is to create great images to use during the hands-on encaustics session to follow.

* During the Encaustics day of this workshop, Margot will introduce the students to the encaustic art supplies and provide hands-on encaustic lessons. She will quickly have the kids creating art, including mounting, adhering, and framing their images on 5×7 inch birch panels. Then, the students will use clear and colored warm wax to embellish their photos. Kids can bring in three-dimensional items to be embedded in the wax, to further decorate their unique encaustic photo panel. Your child will be sure to love this unique kids mixed-media art workshop as they experiment with this exciting medium!
