Encaustic Art: Hive to Canvas with Maria Kolodziej-Zincio

The North Chatham Public Library presents Encaustic Art: Hive to Canvas – Maria Kolodziej-Zincio. Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, is an ancient art-form that involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added.

This event is made possible with public funds from the Decentralization Program of the NYS Council on the Arts, administered in Columbia County by the Greene County Council on the Arts through the Community Arts Grants Fund.
