Immerse yourself in encaustic; explore your inner self

Forget your inhibitions and immerse yourself in the creative process in a studio custom-built for encaustic painting in Portland, Oregon. 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!). Expand on your visual vocabulary and technique skill sets to break new ground in your artistic process.

Students are met where they’re at as far as interest, technique, and skill set. Workshops are group-based, one-on-one, or customized for your private group.

In this supportive environment, you can discover a deeply metaphorical process and explore your own internal landscapes to find your unique artistic voice. 

Spring Workshops

There are several workshops coming up with limited space available. Sign up for a one day encaustic painting workshop, appropriate 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. Instruction will cover a wide range of techniques, explore many approaches and follow the flow of students’ individual interests.
