New Classes

I am very excited to announce that I will be teaching at Twin Soul Art Studio in Los Gatos. Right now I have three classes scheduled, 2 encaustic classes and a photo transfer class. Below is all the info, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Introduction to Encaustic Painting
Saturday, March 16, 2013- 2:30-5:30pm (3 hour workshop)
Cost: $155 per person (includes materials)
Ages: 13 to adult
Encaustic is the art of painting with hot bees wax. This hands-on workshop is a great introduction to encaustic painting. Learn the basic techniques of encaustic painting including the history of the media, materials/safety concerns, heating tools and fusing techniques, layering, masking, stenciling and other techniques to create beautiful works of art. Instructor will provide all materials and students will go home with a sample technique board, resource list, instructional handouts and product samples. Class is limited to 5 students to ensure participants receive individualized time. Must be 13 years or older to participate.

Make your own Encaustic Paint 
Saturday, March 30, 2013- 2:30-4:00pm
Cost: $35.00 ($30.00 if you sign up for the Intro to Encaustic Painting)
Ages: 13 to adult
Making your own encaustic paint is up to 70% cheaper than buying pre-made encaustic paint from art suppliers. You can make large quantities and custom colors. This class will demonstrate how to use dammar resin, refined bees wax and pigments to make your own encaustic medium and paint. Each student will go home with a resource list, instructional handouts, a block of encaustic medium and a block of encaustic paint. Must be 13 years or older to participate.

Image Transfer Techniques

In this class students will learn image transfer techniques for paper arts, collage, fiber arts, and more. Explore transfer options such as Xerox Transfers, Polymer Medium Transfers, Inkjet Image Transfers and more using inexpensive materials. Students will go home with a variety of samples made in class.
