Asemic writing is wordless open semantic form of writing without the smallest unit of meaning. We prefer to view asemic writing as an expression of a personal inner language, one perhaps even the maker cannot translate cognitively. In this workshop, we will experiment with various approaches to asemic writing both large and small, and address ways to incorporate the writing into our work.
We will focus on the discovery and development of our inner language or “alphabet” through body movement and free guesture, explore poetic and other forms of asemic writing. Ultimately we will take our alphabet, break it apart, and explore different approaches of expressing the writing in encaustic form via monotypes and painting abstractions using various tools paired with techniques developed by Amanda and Becky.

Join me for my 24th year teaching unique encaustic workshops in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Chicago, and at other locations. I have a new line- up of intriguing classes that will inspire you and help you grow your art in ways you can barely imagine.
My specialty is Encaustic Monotype Printmaking. No one has more experience or has utilized encaustic and paper in more inventive ways--including encaustic painting, installations, back-lit paper, warmed drawings and much more. This enables me to help you find your voice and integrate your practice with this process.
I was awarded the IEA La Vendeene for unique advances in teaching and the development of the Roland HOTbox--the best tool ever for encaustic. JOIN ME IN A WORKSHOP AND SEE WHY ARTISTS--new or the most experienced--return again and again to work with me.
My NEW ENCAUSTIC STUDIO is in the heart of Santa Fe and near hotels, restaurants and BNBs. Thanks to the new location and to contributions from R&F Handmade Paints, my workshops are more affordable than ever! Follow the calendar links below or see Paula's Art Site!

I find that as autumn settles on the world-the air changes, the leaves drop, and the days shorten-that I too come in. Because of realizing and then paying attention to this rhythm, I have been listening and creating in new ways.
My gardens and yards, house needs and compound growth, take up the lion’s share of my energy and hours when spring finally turns on. This carries through the summer with shortened bursts of studio time.
But when this autumn pulling-in begins, I am keen to respond wholeheartedly. My subconscious has danced with new ideas while tilling the soil of the raised beds. My hands have begun to itch to let what has lied latent in my creative heart burst forth. My soul and my fingertips begin to forage in the studio, reorganize bits and collections, regather connection with the creative expression I call my own.
Some of my most soulful creative work evolves from this depth rhythm. From this noticing and then paying attention, to the natural flow of creative energy.
This year, I want to begin in this autumn-space with you. Where WinterWax has in the past held the space for beginning, this shift to autumn is the truest place of beginning for me-of creative beginning.
With this, I invite you: To gather for one, three or four days-you decide your parameters. Just eight of us total, settling in, learning deep, exploring wide.
The intentions are to:
I don’t expect it to be good; I know it will be great. For those of you unaware, I have been on sabbatical since January. In returning now, in this manner, with the intentions in my heart, I give you my best. I hope you will come along and receive it~

Come and learn about the ancient art of Encaustic – a medium made of beeswax and resin, colored in various ways. This will be a fun class filled with lots of wonderfully waxy techniques. You’ll learn about the terms and tools of the trade, health and safety issues, and the endless ways you can use the medium to express your creativity. The majority of class time will be spent experimenting with the paints, tools and techniques, and you’ll take home several finished works, ready to be exhibited and enjoyed in your home or given as gifts. No previous art experience is required – only a sense of play and desire to learn. Bring your lunch and join us! Children age 10 and older are welcome to register if attending with a registered adult.
All materials are included!
