Det skal I lave

While visiting my art studio, you will learn the process and techniques that can be used in working with encaustics (beeswax & damar resin) to paint. I will provide ALL of the materials and tools, giving you the chance to try this unique art medium WITHOUT having to invest in all of the needed supplies. You will be painting, so be ready to be a bit messy :) We will be using hot plates and heat guns. The material is notoriously spontaneous, so be prepared to have fun and go with the flow! You will get to try different techniques AND have the opportunity to create a small painting to take home. I love sharing this process :)

*Special COVID precautions*
I will only book private sessions for the time being. That can be for one on one, family time (up to 4 people) or a date night. I am fully vaccinated and will wear a mask during our session. My studio has both venting exhaust fans and an air purifier. I also highly recommend signing up for WANotify (or your states equivalent exposure notification app) when you book your session. I will ask your vaccination status as well, thank you for understanding :)

Other things to note
I like to create a space that is welcoming and open. Melting wax often has a mind of its own, so be ready to laugh and be kind with the outcome :) Your painting will be ready for you to take home.

ALL are welcome, regardless of experience. Working in encaustics can be very therapeutic :)

In a relaxed space, I will encourage you to explore your creative side while experimenting with beeswax, resin and heat! I have been a professional artist for over 25 years, and I LOVE sharing the process with others; our session will allow you a unique opportunity to work in encaustics WITHOUT investing in all the tools! My Art is in the permanent collection at the Museum of Encaustic Art as well as public, private and corporate collections in the US, Canada, Panama, Belgium, France and the UK. Bring your friends, come meet some new ones, or book a private session for one on one, family time or a date.

If you can't find a day or time that works, or would like to book for a larger group, feel free to ask! I will always try to make it work.

Encaustic art making with Kari was a wonderful experience. I’d highly recommend this for anyone and everyone—Kari sets you at ease and gives perfect initial directions and tips as you go. Oh my gosh, being in her lovely studio and exploring the tools and materials (you get to use this fun toasty heat wand, among other things) is truly meditative and so so enjoyable. This is a fabulous way to get creative in a relaxing environment.

Kari's class was great! I booked this as a birthday present for my husband. He has dabbled in painting over the years and have no experience with painting (I love crafty things, but I am not a very good painter!). Kari gave a great background on the Encaustics process. She showed us how it worked and then we had time to practice with the materials before working on a small canvas to take home. It was fun and interesting! This was also during Dec 21' as another uptick in covid numbers were starting. We've been very cautious during the pandemic and Kari took all health precautions seiously. We were masked, it was only us and Kari in the studio and she had fans going and windows open. I would definitely recommend this as a fun small group outing or a date night

This was such a fun workshop! Kari was super friendly and welcoming, and she took the time to explain the materials and what kind of things one would need if they wanted to continue doing encaustics on their own.

Kari did a wonderful job explaining the process and made everything so much easier than I would’ve expected! A very care fee and relaxing experience

I greatly enjoyed this experience. It was interesting to learn the basic of an art form I was unfamiliar with. Kari was very good at presenting the class at my level of experience and understanding. Highly recommend this experience.

We enjoyed learning how to do Encaustic Painting from Kari. She taught us multiple approaches and let us play around experiment with them before doing our final art project which was really nice. Kari is a great communicator and explained things really well. We had a fabulous time learning and painting and would recommend this to anyone interested in this art form.
