Let's create a unique piece of art and share an experience unleashing your inner artist in my studio at the Distillery District.
You will be amazed at what you can create in my workshop! We will work with your own imagery or the collection of images I supply to create gorgeous and meaningful artwork that you can be proud to say you made.
Encaustic is my main medium of choice...it is an ancient 3000 year old technique of painting in molten wax. In modern times, it has seen a resurgence due to the ease of heating up the wax...it has an etheral, dreamlike quality due to the translucency of the wax!. We will work with collage, image transfer, embedded objects, stencils and paint in a layered approach to create your unique piece of art.
You don't need any art experience as I will guide you all the way from start to finish in creating your 10" x 10" finished artwork. If you are an artist, that's great too...you will learn new skills in this exciting medium. I have been teaching encaustic workshops for 8 years and love helping people be inspired, learn and create art.
The pictures below were made by my students on their very first workshop with me!...Imagine making a wall of inspirational artwork! You can call them vision, dream, or intention boards....I have motivational words, will print and crop your photo, and we can use special quotes to make your art complete.
$85 per workshop which takes place on the weekend. This price includes tax, all supplies, including printing and cropping your own photo (if that is what you choose) and a 10" x 10" wood panel. My studio is located at the historic Distillery District in the Artscape Building (Studio 103) and is itself a source of inspiration. I keep workshops to a maximum of 6 to ensure you have enough personal time with me and we will work on your piece until you are finished. 3 to 3.5 hours is usually enough time, but if extra time is needed, we will take it! I want you to leave happy and inspired.
It is first come first served so please book ahead of time to ensure you get your picture cropped and printed. Please note that due to high power equipment and tools used (hot plate, heat gun), I do not teach children under 12 unless supervised by an adult that is also taking the class. Thanks for understanding!
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or want to arrange a direct payment to book your spot in the class. If you want to book a nightime event with a minimum of 3 people, please contact me directly. I hold mixed media wax and wine parties for up to 5 people where you can bring your own wine...and make wax paintings. Classes can also be scheduled during the weekdays depending on availability
If you are interested in a more in depth experience, you can purchase a four class package which will enable you to explore the medium further.
