Circle of Energy in Encaustic - All levels

Instructor: Heather Hennick

Connect with your creative spirit with informal, relaxed sessions 
of creative exploration with this ancient medium of molten beeswax. Sessions are designed to reduce stress, gain insight and add quality of life. This small group (5 or less) includes a brief introduction to relaxation, encaustic painting techniques , art making and time for therapeutic processing for each group member. As an art therapist I help people
 examine the symbolic and metaphoric content in their work. No artistic skill is needed .
 The quality of the work is not as important as the process of self expression.
