I offer private drawing and encaustic lessons in my Seattle art studio at $60 an hour. I recommend two hours for a lesson. Five lesson packages are also available for $550.

Please contact me about pricing for group drawing lessons with charcoal and erasure.

I also teach workshops at other venues from time to time. I will post those opportunities on this page.

Lesson Descriptions: 

One Encaustic Painting Lesson: Come to my studio in Seattle for an encaustic lesson. If you are new to encaustic this can be an intro to the encaustic lesson with history, an explanation of encaustic and demo, and an hour to paint on your own panel. Or you can paint for the whole lesson. Bring a panel to paint on and some reference images you wish to work from on, I will provide the rest. The lesson lasts two hours. If you wish to have more lessons I suggest you purchase the 5 lesson package.

Encaustic Lessons -Package of Five: You will have 5 two-hour lessons in my encaustic studio in Seattle. This is ideal if you wish to spend more time exploring encaustic with my guidance or maybe you have an ongoing painting project that you would like to on. Bring your own panel and printed reference images you would like to work from. I provide the rest.

One Drawing Lesson: With is purchase you will receive a drawing lesson, for two hours in my studio in Seattle. You will be drawing from still life in a very traditional way, with charcoal and erasure to build your drawing skills. Bring drawing paper and vine/willow charcoal and also compressed charcoal and hard and kneaded erasures.

 This is not just tip back a glass of wine and make a drawing that is just like everyone else’s in the room. You will be in a real art studio, making a drawing that is unique to you! No experience is necessary, I will give you one-on-one help as you draw your still life with charcoal and an eraser. Come ready to enjoy yourself and learn something new about drawing. This event lasts an hour and a half.
