Got caught doodling? Had heart eyes when you went to an art museum? OR had an over-all fascination  that  got inspired by glancing at something? Attend these classes! 

My classes are limited numbered group classes                       that are a one-on-one learning experience. 

Encaustic* Wax Workshops: 
Scheduled for a date each mid-month.                                                              For exact date and time, please contact. 

Duration:  3 hours
Tools and Supplies:  Provided unless student has his/her own.
Fee:  Per person  - $100 plus $25 if student does not have own tools and supplies

Caution,  IT’S HOT!
We need a heat source to melt the coloured waxes to be able to paint with them.  Three thousand years ago, the artist had to make a charcoal fire and keep it at the exact right temperature for painting, so that was very difficult.  He had to make his own coloured waxes too.

Nowadays, painting with wax is much easier – we can use special electric tools, like the painting iron or the stylus (a heated brush or pen) and ready-made coloured waxes.

Other Workshops:  
Scheduled on an individual basis and time permitting.

All necessary supplies can be obtained from Constance Wooldridge at Sienna Arts.
