Choose to give yourself this dedicated time to explore your creative photography! Surrounded by other artists in a professional studio, you'll be able to bring together your ideas and techniques to create work unique to your vision. We'll also discuss finishing, framing, signing, and shipping your work, plus how to set up your studio at home so you can continue creating after you return home full of new ideas!

In this class we'll combine encaustic with photography while focusing on hand coloring your personal photographs. I'll demonstrate how to use encaustic paint and other media including pastels, pigment sticks, and fine art crayons. We'll also enhance your paintings using collage, and add depth to your work by building up texture, as you discover your own unique combination of these creative processes.

This workshop is easily accessible for someone with little or no background in working with encaustic, but will also offer rich, personalized instruction for those who have more experience. I keep my class sizes very small, a maximum of 6 students, so everyone can learn at their own pace. This allows me to help introduce beginners to this new medium and still challenge more experienced artists with advanced tips and techniques.

Most supplies will be provided including all encaustic medium, encaustic paint, brushes, paper, small boards, and basic encaustic tools. You will be asked to bring a few panels of your choice for additional experimentation.
