The topic of encaustic comes up often in our live discussions but this is not a painting class...OPENSTUDIO is a members only program where you will advance your creative business development, connect with like-minded peers, learn how to exhibit and sell your work professionally and how to present and market your art to the public. There will not be any specific encaustic component inside this membership program.
However, if you wish to focus on encaustic painting I do have an online course that specifically covers my encaustic techniques.

YES! The content we are going to work through together is directly actionable for any creative business and discipline.

Yes! You can review the OPENSTUDIO content and programming Syllabus here. The Syllabus shows 12 sessions of content but is subject to change to match the needs of the OPENSTUDIO members, I want to teach what you want to learn!
