Encaustic Workshop

Encaustic Workshop

I have taken lots of workshops and am myself an art teacher and artist. Jill lead the workshop with a perfect balance of structure and flow. The atmosphere was very relaxed and comfortable and at the same time Jill’s demonstrations and information were clear and easy to follow. She even made us scones and coffee…what more could you ask for?

I painted with pigmented wax!  This is really exciting. I barely knew about encaustics before I signed up for the workshop, but knew I would love it.  Combining  color and texture and a bit of that waxy smell ... had to be a winning mixture.  I knew I would find it very enticing.

I though the handout of history, materials, application and safety guidelines were very thorough and well thought out.  Also as a non-artist, at no time did I feel concerned that I wouldn’t finish my piece, because I thought your basic instructions were easy to comprehend, easy to follow and they allowed me to come up with my own techniques. I had a great time and would definitely sign up for more classes with you.

Jill is an artful facilitator and gently guided the class into productive experimentation and exploration.  She gave a lot of information but did not overwhelm us, but at the moment I was ready to absorb more, she was there with new information, resources, and experiences. Jill is very knowledgeable about her subject, which showed in her ability to adapt and guide us in response to our learning, and like her studio space, creatively energetic and inspiring.
