Peru

Mar 8 - Mar 20 2016

Enjoy the warm Peruvian sun and explore your creative flair, learning the enchanting art of encaustic. This ancient medium, using molten beeswax, is a perfect partner to Peru’s historic Incan Empire, stunning landscape, arts, and local colour.  We will hand-alter photographs taken on our cultural explorations of Macchu Piccu, local galleries, architectural wonders, and Peruvian gastronomic and fine arts, learning how to pour, carve, and colour sweet-smelling beeswax to create mixed media photographic paintings.
