cls_photo-pastel-skylineEvery year I hear from students who want to take my encaustic workshops but either live too far away to fly in for just one or two days or prefer a more immersive environment where they can learn many techniques in a short time. With this in mind. I offer 5-day intensive workshops that combine some of my most popular classes with some brand new techniques that will keep you creating new work for years to come.

I’ve just opened registration for my first Wax Week class of 2018:

cls_mixed-media-buddhaWax Week: Photo Encaustic
June 9 – 13, 2018, Sat – Wed (5 days!)
My private studio in Portland, Oregon

We’ll focus on combining encaustic with photography while focusing on hand coloring with pastels, pigment sticks and artists crayons, layering photos with encaustic collage, adding depth to your work, pouring wax over your photographs and finding your own unique look for these creative processes. All levels welcome. Learn more and register here

Single-day Classes

I’ve also opened registration for some of my 2018 single day classes. I only accept 4 – 6 students per class so we’ll have plenty of time to work together, and all supplies are included for most classes. Here’s what’s coming up next:

I wish I could take your course on making encaustic paint. The cost of paint online is outrageous. Alas, I’m all the way in Virginia. Would you recommend any resources to help me learn the process and materials? I already make medium.

Hi Anne, It’s true that the paint is expensive, but nearly as costly if you make your own paint or extend the professional paints (Like R&F or Enkaustikos) with medium. It’s great that you already make your won medium because that will be a big money saver!

My first book, Embracing Encaustic: Learning to Paint with Beeswax will be you started and is on sale right now as a ebook for just $5!

Another option would be my online classes. I created them for people like you who can’t get to my classes on the west coast. I would suggest Encaustic Painting & Texture to start: http://www.robertsonworkshops.com/. That class even has a free video on encaustic materials that may answer some of your questions.

Other then that, you might check out the R&F web site for free resources. I hope this helps. Thanks for connecting with me! Linda
