I teach encaustic workshops several times a year. Encaustic is a form of painting that uses hot wax to bind pigment. Encaustic is a dynamic medium (due stochastic nature of hot wax), and can be used for anything from abstract to realism, as a primary medium, or incorporated with mixed media.

I can do custom workshops for individuals or small groups. Contact me if you are interested.

This 2-day, studio-based class focuses on the techniques used for encaustic with mixed media, a process that uses wax to carry pigment. Because of its translucency, the wax can be embedded with layers of papers and found objects, and experimental processes. Safety and shop practices, basic tools and techniques, traditional priming techniques, Students will be provided with the knowledge needed to use this medium in their own studio.

Julie Brookman

Julie Brookman is best known for her encaustic paintings, where through hot wax and pigment she has found a way to capture the myriad faces and moods of the sea in a way that makes time stand still. To create her paintings, Brookman focuses on layering, transparency, and repetition of movement to allow the paintings to form intuitively, and of their own volition. Her most recent show was at Jen Tough Gallery in Benicia
