It is a continuing delight and privilege to introduce new people to encaustic painting. This group was so much fun and I got to make new friends.
By the second day the participants are excited to get to work and discover their personal encaustic adventure. A few quotes. "This is too much fun!" ; "This process gives joy!"; "This is the best!"
|Béa commented,"I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed your workshop|
You are a strong,... talented lady!
It was an honor to learn from you

Giving these classes gives me the opportunity to make new friends as well as sharing all that I have discovered in my 13 years of using encaustic.

After people have taken both the introductory and advanced encaustic workshops with me, I offer the opportunity to rent my studio for a day or two, and use all my materials. That way one can work, or play on their own without instruction, although, if I am close to the studio, I will answer questions and offer suggestions.

This was the first day of my 55th workshop! I am so blessed to meet such great people, many of whom become lasting friends. Two of the women are from Mexico City. It was a chance to practice my Spanish. I have a long way to go before I can explain the encaustic process in Spanish.

|everyone has their own work station and all materials are supplied|
I am hoping the weather will be cooler in June. I am changing the dates for later in the month and will keep my fingers crossed that the rains will start.

I finally gave up trying to clean up the background noise in these videos...so these are just as taken in the studio.

Here is the video of the participants in an advanced technique class. I am always impressed and inspired by the talented artists who create original, unique painting in the workshop.

This group of five people was a dream to work with. Everyone quickly got the feel of the encaustic and the torch and created their own vision.

|It was a full week of classes. This advanced workshop allowed me to show many techniques that can be used in encaustic.|

I will have a day off tomorrow and start the advanced techniques Thursday.
I am often happily surprised that the wonderful work that is created by people who have never touched encaustic before.
