"WAXING CREATIVE"

Come meet artist Chris Craft at the January MAG meeting as he demonstrates the fascinating process of creating an encaustic painting. Beginning with a blank cradled hardboard substrate, Chris will show how to start an encaustic painting and how to manipulate the paint with flame.

Chris Craft is a fine artist with a long commercial art history. He has painted for most of his life in a variety of styles and media.  Encaustic abstract paintings are his passion where he experiments with color and sculptural texture. Craft layers the melted wax with different techniques, including actually painting with the flame. Chris is currently represented by Ciel Gallery in Charlotte, NC.



Members, friends, and those interested in fine arts are welcome to attend our monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of every month.   Our meetings are free and open to the public.
