Introduction to Encaustic Painting - 6/27/24

Learn to "Paint with Fire" with Penny as she shares the ancient Egyptian technique of encaustic painting in this upbeat full-day workshop where she'll share her personal techniques and guide you in creating luscious works of art. Perfect for any creative, beginners or advanced artists desiring more experience.

Photography + Encaustic Painting - 7/19/24

Bring your photographic prints to life with beeswax, pigments and mixed media. Inkjet prints of family, pets, or self-portraits are perfect and landscape or seascape images are sublime. Apply multiple layers of wax to achieve a "smokey/dreamlike" look or add texture and built a sculptural effect. After registering, email Penny to discuss ideas for your photo encaustic piece and printing. (Penny will print your image if you do not have the capability)

Landscape + Encaustic Painting - 8/15/24

Encaustic painting is one of the most forgiving painting mediums eliciting luscious effects as the blow torch melds pigmented wax into ethereal landscapes. It has the ability to appear opaque, thick and sculptural or transparent, ethereal and whispery. This medium is perfect for creating representational or abstract landscapes almost effortlessly while using Penny’s unique methods.
