This Fall ArtEscape Studios located in downtown Walla Walla will host art workshops in encaustics, oil painting, and woodblock printmaking. These workshops provide an opportunity for the curious and creative minded to come out and explore art making with the guidance of a highly skilled artist, and with a limited monetary commitment (all supplies will be provided). Workshops will provide foundation information on working with the mediums, and will center on guided art making and exploration.
All materials will be provided, and no experience is required. Due to potential hazards that can accompany working with the tools in these workshops, all participants must be 18 or older or be accompanied by an adult.
