As part of WE ARE HURTLING INTO THE FUTURE exhibition, Joanna Kidney will teach a class in encaustic painting on Saturday 14th January from 10am to 3pm in Galway Arts Centre. Encaustic painting is an ancient, immediate and tactile painting process using molten pigmented beeswax. The workshop will take an experimental approach to exploring the qualities of encaustic painting (texture, transparency/opacity, incising and impressing, building up/breaking down layers). Joanna most recently taught this technique to Fine Art students during a residency at Brigham Young University, Utah. Each participant of the workshop will create an encaustic painting. People can sign up online on www.galwayartscentre.ie The cost is €45 which includes all materials.
