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.

Encaustic with a Creative Mind Mixed Media Workshops

Interest for our workshops has increased and we are now offering three different dates. We offer students the opportunity to receive individual critique and guidance as they work on their projects. Each work session is limited to ten students, which allows for a relaxed no pressure environment, as well as ample time for one-on-one instruction.  Our new location in Pescadero, offers ocean and vineyard views in a retreat setting. This is truly a special place to make work and be inspired.


April 26th and 27th 10am to 4pm

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 The Studio Shop Gallery, Arts Benicia.
