Encaustic: Painting with Wax and Heat 

Each session is 3 hours long, and includes all materials and a reference handout to take home, for $350. Bring a friend for $250 - you each save $50!


We'll start where you are: if you need basics, we'll cover them. If not, we'll skip straight to the topics that most interest you - refining your fusing technique, getting a smooth surface, making your own medium, collage, image transfer, scraping, building texture, incorporating oil and pastel, or drawing on the surface. Or, bring your work in progress for trouble-shooting.


Each student will get a minimum of two pre-primed Encausticbord panels to work on along with access to a wide variety of tools and materials.


Contact me directly to schedule your session.
