Upcoming Workshops

Private and group instruction in Nashville TN.  I'm a teaching artist for R&F Paints and for the International Encaustic Artists Association. Teaching is a great joy for me!

Hot & Cold Wax Discovery Weekend

Sept 16 &17, 10am-5pm $250

River Art Studio, Nashville

Learn encaustic (hot wax) AND cold wax painting in one weekend. I demonstrate basic techniques, and different materials, then students have hands-on studio time. Cold wax is exciting because it can be combined with acrylic, used on canvas, and it does not need heat or electrical equipment. I will demonstrate fusing, layering, image transfers, stencils, texture, inscribing, and collage. I provide pigment sticks, oil pastels, stencils, collage ephemera, photo transfers and all you need for a weekend of discovery. Expect to take home 1-2 finished paintings and your practice boards. 

Perfect for anyone new or curious, and an excellent refresher for experienced artists or those wishing to expand their current practice.


All encaustic materials included. Add cold wax materials fee if you wish to try both mediums. 

Minimum 8, Max 12 students. 

Location: River Art Studio, 8329 Sawyer Brown Rd., Nashville

  • 2 days $250    REGISTER below

  • Saturday only $150  REGISTER below

  • $50 materials fee for those wishing to try cold wax

Spend a summer evening trying hot wax painting in this cozy little art house in West Nashville. Grab some friends, some take-out from a neighborhood restaurant, and let's wax-away for a night. BYOB. Think 'summer garden' and botanicals!
