Figurative Encaustic Master Class Correspondence Course

                                                 Encaustic portrait by Richard Young

Artist Richard Young’s Encaustic Master Class

If you are currently an abstract artist (or any other style) and want to learn figurative encaustic, Richard Young can get you started by creating a preliminary sketch on the encaustic substrate and shipping it to you. This will be a daily correspondence course at your convenience. One doesn’t have to be at one’s computer at any particular time. Over the 4 weeks, Richard says, “I’ll leave no stone unturned in the figurative encaustic process.” Basically there will be 3 parts: Setting up a foundation and being able to maintain accuracy throughout the process, building on the foundation and meditation on creativity and technique, and thirdly, finishing touches and knowing “when” the final brush stroke is made. All of this with detailed photos, videos and detailed in-depth instruction is $500 for a 4 week class. $1000 for a 4 month master class. For more details please email me, Richard Young, at Tsarevich63@charter.net            www.richardyoungfineart.com
