Encaustic is a Greek word meaning to heat or burn in (enkaustikos). Heat is used throughout the process, from melting the beeswax to fusing the layers of wax. The medium is melted and applied with a brush or any tool the artist chooses.

Beeswax is extremely versatile. Pigmented color can be added and used to paint with. Or it can be used in 3D works of art, such as sculptures, utilizing the wax to mold and bind the sculptural elements to create the final product.

Students will…

  • Explore new materials and encaustic wax as a medium for sculpture.
  • Create a unique sculpture using natural materials, such as beeswax, wood, paper, cloth, etc.
