This class will get you started into rediscovering the old art medium of crayon and taking it into the 21st century of painting bright amazing works of art that are being shown in galleries and museum all over the world.

Crayon Encaustic painting is the process of heating your wax crayons to create the artwork. The crayons are melted and transferred to paper. Ron’s encaustic work is a celebration of the alchemy of transforming common crayon wax into unique artistic works.

Crayon encaustics can be fun and challenging; an original art form with a unique effect that makes your piece of work enjoyable with a full range of artistic styles; it can be anything from an abstract vision to a realistic image.
