I really like working one on one with private encaustic students. We can focus on exactly the technique and what they want to accomplish in the 5 1/2 hours that we work together.
Julia wanted to learn how to combine the photo her husband took with her painting style. We made a transfer of this wonderful photo and she applied it to the board after putting down a good base of encaustic. She had had no previous experience in encaustic, so we went from the basics to her completed painting.
See what can be done in one day with me working side by side with you. I demo on another board, offer suggestions, but encourage the student to create their own vision.
