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.

Group Classes, Private Instruction and Camps

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! 

Any group classes are limited in number which permits a unique one-on-one learning experience. ​ Students develop skills in creating artwork by learning and practising landscape, seascape, portraiture, still life, perspective, light, blending, shading, colour mixing, and more.

*Encaustic? What IS that? It is the technique of painting with molten beeswax that was developed more than 3000 years ago!  Back in time, people decorated war ships, marble statues and walls of tombs with wax paintings.
