I’ve recently returned from teaching a three day encaustic and mixed media workshop in Rochester, New York. This sold-out class was hosted by my friend and fellow artist Kathryn Bevier in her roomy studio at Anderson Alley Artists. What a wonderful experience! I feel lucky to have connected with each of these very talented artists.
My classes included Secrets of Creating Depth, Working with Stencils using wax and other materials, plus Wax Transfers with Photos, Drawings and Rubbings. I offer these classes regularly in my Portland, Oregon studio. View my class schedule here. I also offer encaustic classes online at RobertsonWorkshops.com.
It was exciting to spend some time with by Kathryn as well as my buddy Mike Lesczinski who owns Rochester Art Supply / FineArtStore.com. Many of you may recognize them from the Enkaustikos booth at different encaustic conferences and events across the country.
Most of the class joined me for an epic after hours shopping trip at Rochester Art Supply one night. We were there for hours, finding one deal after another and drooling over their amazing paper room. Mike was also kind enough to make a goodie bag with a Wax Snap and and one of their new EnkaustiKolors set for everyone in the class.
Thanks to Rachel Marie Sharpe from Rochester Art Supply and Kathryn Bevier for sharing their photos with me for this blog post.
