Working Large

with Encaustic

is a 4 day

group workshop experience 

This course is designed to advance your painting skills and teach you specific methods on how to best approach a large work surface.


You'll learn how to successfully apply and fuse your materials and how to handle and present your pieces professionally. 


If you intend to exhibit and sell your work, this class will further enhance your professional development as an artist.  

What you can expect:

This workshop takes place in my fully equipped encaustic studio located on the edge of Seattle's Chinatown District.

During our 4-day session, you will be provided with a generous supply of encaustic paints and materials, including a 30"x 40" wood cradled panel. You will have access to the tools and equipment in my professional studio and a variety of additional art supplies in order to create your own large encaustic painting.


The studio hours are 10am to 5pm so there will be ample time to work on your project as I guide you through my methods for scaling up your encaustic artworks.


On day 4 of the workshop, you will be provided with instruction and packing materials to safely prepare your own painting for return shipping to your home or studio.


Your creativity expands when you 

scale up your artwork.  

Be prepared for a transformative 

and creative experience.

Reach an entirely new level of mastery! 

Return to your studio energized and equipped with new knowledge and

hands-on processes that will enable you to advance in your art practice.


"Alicia is a very generous instructor who freely shares her knowledge and passion for encaustic with her students."
