Create a Route 66 Embossed Metal Encaustic during Art Workshop for adults planned on July 15
POSTED: 06/22/2017
Adults 18 and older can join a practicing artist for art adventures through history’s lens during a new art workshop being presented by the Johnson County Museum in mid-July.

This program is called Museum Art Workshop - Route 66 Embossed Metal Encaustic and will take place at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center, located in the former King Louie Building at 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park.

Participants will explore new techniques and improve existing skills while applying elements of art and design based on work from old masters through contemporary artists. As they learn about the art and history of each theme, students will be guided through the process to create their own hand-embossed metal and melted wax encaustic inspired by the museum’s temporary Route 66 exhibition and images of motels and diners along Route 66. All skill levels are welcome.

To find this workshop in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under adult and then under fine & performing arts. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “art.”

Museum Art Workshop - Route 66 Embossed Metal Encaustic will take place beginning at 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 15. The cost for one 90-minute program is program is $15 per person, or $14 for museum members.
