MOUNT KISCO – Encaustics: Painting in Wax Teen Camp @ Katonah Art Center

August 5 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Learn how to paint with a mixture of melted beeswax, pure pigment, and Damar resin. In encaustic painting, each layer is melted to the one below, giving the piece depth and luminosity. Students will learn how to melt, mix, and apply wax to create a variety of surface effects. Students will also learn how use photographs and other collage effects for creating texture and interest. There will be a $50 material fee for this camp.



MONDAY, August 5- FRIDAY, August 9, 2019 

1 – 4 pm

$360 + $50  Materials fee



Our Teen Camp is a great option for teens that love art and might be too old for, or bored by traditional day camps. Each one-week session will focus intensively on a single topic. Our goal is to instill in each camper the skills needed to continue to explore the subject independently.


Teen Campers should dress appropriately for art and bring a snack each day. Full-day campers should also bring a lunch to be escorted to lunch and their next afternoon camp. See Camp FAQ for more info.


Please note: Subjects listed are options – choose one subject for each half-day weekly session. Materials are included for all camps, except where noted in the camp descriptions.
