We will work small enough to fit in your suitcase, on both paper and panel, and will cover the basics, and special techniques, most importantly, our aim is to help you achieve your vision in this beautiful medium.

Our explorations of the city and its surroundings will provide inspiration for our studio time. We will work on paper and panels, exploring the encaustic medium as it allows us to express our reactions to local experiences. We will cover all the encaustic basics but also explore a variety of exciting new techniques. This workshop is appropriate for beginning to advanced encaustic artists.
