A social photo painting experience

Girls’ Night Out
Kids’ Parties
Family Reunions
Bridal Showers
and more!

Challenge your inner artist to explore the limitless creativity of Encaustic Painting. Add and subtract layers of beeswax using brushes and stencils. Play with contrast and colors to turn an ordinary photograph into an extraordinary, one of a kind piece of fine art! Artist, Leah Macdonald, will guide you through this process by demonstration and one on one assistance to help you push through your own mind's boundaries.

What’s included…
We start with a lovely light dinner with wine and beverages, while getting to know each other and the art teacher.
Then we head upstairs to the studio, where the photo you sent is prepped on an 11x14 cradled maple panel.
We like to start at 6 with dinner, and wrap up by 8 for your convenience.

Experience WaxWorksphoto with your OWN photos! No experience necessary.
