Teacher will provide photos, or email up to 3 photos you would like to work with to Tristina@TRAXArtStudios.com by 7pm May 9th so she can print the imagery on special photo paper for you.
Classes are kept small to allow plenty of personal instruction. Students will be introduced to the wax paints, tools, safe studio practices, fun tinting and embedding of photographs in wax techniques...and will leave with a finished painting!
Workshop materials included. Participants should wear clothing that can get messy. Painting aprons are available in the studio if you do not have one. Cold water will be available in the studio for purchase; bring any additional drinks desired as it is important to keep hydrated during the workshop.
