Course Description

If you’re already addicted to the luscious layering of wax and empowering feeling of “painting with fire,” join Penny Treese in her advanced encaustic painting workshop and elevate your work to a new dimension. This intermediate to advanced workshop is designed to introduce a variety of new techniques, as well as beginning to open a dialogue involving the content of paintings. Moving beyond technique, we will delve into what inspires each artist, guiding them into creating successful works of encaustic art.

For more experienced encaustic painters, there’s an opportunity to enhance their practice with a variety of exciting techniques, and to begin to develop of a consistent body of work. Individual instruction aids in taking current work to a new level.
