Voice Your Thoughts Through Encaustic Painting:
Responding to the Desecrated Bible

Saturday morning we will respond to the Bible with encaustic collage, using words and emotions to encapsulate in layers of wax. We will receive a hands-on introduction to the encaustic process with a focus on collage, followed by your own creative exploration.
