Forget your inhibitions and immerse yourself in the creative process in my NW Portland Artist Studio. Play with fire, make a mess, and enjoy the spontaneity and unpredictability of painting with encaustic, an ancient art form using beeswax, resin and pigment (and torches!!). In this supportive environment, you can discover the deeply metaphorical process and explore your own internal landscapes to find your unique artistic voice.
There are several workshops coming up with only a few spots left. Join me for a one day encaustic painting workshop, good for both beginners and experienced painters. Learn the basic encaustic painting process and how to expand on these techniques and art concepts to find your personal voice and explore the versatility of this ancient medium. My method of teaching is very individualized and I will meet you where ever you are in the process. We cover a wide range of techniques and explore many approaches and follow the flow of the students individual interests.
