Encaustic painting (or hot wax painting) involves painting using hot beeswax to which pigments have been added. It is a technique that dates back to the first century BC. This month Janet Reynolds will speak to the club about this fascinating art form. In her own words:
- I am a naturalist, artist & lover of this incredible life.
- I actively communicate, listen, & share with community, concerning caring for the planet, clean water, food security, and our responsibility.
- I work with youth in the Juvenile Justice System to help connect them with themselves & our world.
- I teach adult painting in my studio in Little Forest Hills.
- I create my own artwork and exhibit. It is an extension of my outreach.
- I am an organic gardener & pollinator planter.
- In short, I have a very good time!
The Q&A Session starts at 6:45. Come early to get your beekeeping questions answered by our more experienced members in a more informal setting. Also, we will have Alan Eynon with our monthly “In the Hive”.
All meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month and are free and open to the public. You’re encouraged to attend even if you don’t know anything about beekeeping–it’s a great chance to see what it’s all about!
