Workshop Highlights


Just finished up a 3-Day Encaustic Intensive with a lovely group of artists. One student traveled all the way from New York to participate in the class and everyone had a great time learning how to paint with wax. 

Here's our photo diary of the workshop...

A meaningful collection of work emerged after three full days of painting and the fearless exploration of materials.



Alexis came all the way from New York for this workshop!
