Art workshop teaches ancient technique

Apr. 08, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- The Renaissance Art Gallery hosted a workshop Sunday that allowed people to learn more about encaustic art.

Once an obsolete technique with roots that stretch to Egyptian antiquity, encaustic art is now recognized both for its beauty and its versatility. The painting medium uses bees wax and pigments and is both durable and impervious to moisture.

The gallery is located on the ground floor of the former Huntington High building at 9th Avenue and 8th Street. It is open from noon to 4 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 1 to 4 p.m. on Sundays. For special appointments, call 304-453-3187.
