Ever wondered what it's like to paint with Encaustic?

Private and Group Workshops

Mini encaustic workshops give participants a hands-on introduction to the encaustic process. We start with a focus on health and safety followed by a demonstration of basic technique and hands-on studio time. You have a chance to explore paints and encaustic tools in a safe comfortable work environment.

Techniques presented in this class include fusing; brushing; preparing an encaustic ground; texture; layering; inscribing lines; introduction to collage, and glazing with Pigment Sticks.

I attended Maura's studio tour and was very impressed with her work.  Although I don’t consider myself very artistic, I was curious enough to attend her introductory art class & appreciated the experience.  I completed a small project & was pleasantly surprised with the outcome – yes, I even showed it to my friends.  I would recommend this class.  It was fun and Maura is an inspiring teacher.

Maura is a wonderful teacher and her introduction to encaustic painting was a great experience. We had lots of fun and being in her studio and her beautiful home was really inspiring. Maura has a passion and great talent that she shares with patience and detail. She just wants you to have fun in the process! It was a great afternoon!

Maura - thank you for your patience in showing me some of the basics of encaustic painting. Your work is beautiful - you are extremely talented in this art. I am definitely interested in another class where we can create a specific picture of sorts using encaustic painting.

I enjoyed learning and experiencing the Encaustic technique.  Spending time in Maura’s studio space was inspiring and very comfortable.  A beautiful setup space to nourish and connect with one’s innate creativity.

I am definitely a beginner to art, other than being a scrapbooker. I only signed up because I know and trust Maura, otherwise it would have been too intimidating for me. Now, I can't wait to go back! It was fun, inspiring, it felt safe to experiment, and Maura is an enthusiastic and encouraging teacher as well as being a gifted artist. Highly recommend!
