In the Middle Tennessee area?

March 5th, 12th, & 19th 
then you should come to my encaustic workshop at the Murfreesboro Art League! You can find their blog here. The image above is one of my student's work from a previous workshop, created by encaustic painting and string collage.

Join us in creating some amazing, original layered artwork using encaustic paints and medium! This is a 3 week workshop taking place each Monday from 7pm to 9pm. All materials are included, but you are welcome to bring any 3D elements, ephemera, etc. that you would like to include in your work, as well as any kind of surface. 

Surfaces will be provided (8"x8" Masonite board) but you can work on any surface that is durable enough to hold the wax (such as any kind of wood, shelving, canvas, or get creative!). 

If you choose to bring your own images for TRANSFERS, you will need Laser jet, NOT Inkjet copies (the toner from the Laser jet is what transfers). Any images you bring for collage or transfer will not be returned, so be sure you have copies. 

Since this is a 3 week workshop, we will be building on our skills each week. 

Week 1: Melting wax, safety, heat guns, dripping, collage. 
Week 2: Image transfers and 3D collage 
Week 3: Combine it all! Create your encaustic masterpiece! We will also talk about mounting and long-term care. 

Members to MAL are FREE! Non-Members: $5 per night, so $15 total. But, you should just join! Free workshops all year, a gallery to display your art and opportunities to sell your work! Membership rates: Regular - $45
Senior (65+) - $35
Family (living at same address –teens & up) $50
Student - $25 Sign up ASAP to reserve your seat!


  1. I have always wanted to learn how to do that(well..at least since I first saw one in person about 14 yrs ago)

  2. you should come! it's very easy and the materials can be relatively inexpensive to do by yourself. plus i've heard good things from Janet and Erin, so i'd love to have a chance to meet you. :D
