Heather Hennick – Circle of Energy with EncausticH_Hennick

Friday, July 3 to Thursday, July 9

Encaustic painting is a process that uses beeswax in a molten form. Tools include equipment to melt the wax (irons, heat blowers), brushes, and incising or drawing tools. The process includes ordering and disordering intriguing textures, colours, contrasts, markings and translucent surfaces.
The benefits of using encaustic in art therapy will be demonstrated in the artwork; as Heather Hennick develops themes, images and textures to combat burnout and compassion fatigue.
