Pop-in Art Event: Free Encaustic Demo
Saturday, August 27th from 1-3 pm

Free Demo: Jeanne Borofsky, Encaustic and Encaustic Monotypes
Balancing Acts artist, Jeanne Borofsky will be showing us how she uses encaustic (hot wax) to create mono- types using a “hot box” (i.e. an aluminum plate over a box with 100 watt bulbs inside). The colored wax melts on the surface, so you can “paint” or “draw” with it and into it.

Jeanne Borofsky BFA, MFA, is an internationally recognized artist with paintings, prints and drawings in numerous museums and private collections.  She has been a practicing artist for over 50 years. A member of New England Wax, she will be doing demos of encaustic painting and monotypes.
