Encausticology Home Stories in 3D Forms
Come with me on a three dimensional journey exploring encaustic off the panel ! Some would say that the symbol of a house can be a symbol for the self . You could also explore that it is a protective structure to ones inner being. Do your houses show dreams of the future , or memories past ? Are they a fictional story with created characters or ideas ? The basic house shape can be a powerful symbol in many ways .
Come with me to create fictional or real stories for these meaningful forms and learn how to expand on an idea to create a series of work built on a single idea expanded to a meaningful theme both in abstract and imagery.
What you will learn in this workshop:
- creating encaustic sculpture 3 dimensional forms

I have currently have 16 online workshops that run 24/7 in both metal and encaustic painting techniques , and well as "Wax on Wednesdays" encaustic painting channel on Youtube. Here are some feedback comments about the online workshops:
This is an absolutely wonderful online class. Shari's lessons are delightfully unique and her teaching is very easy to follow. I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in the art of encaustics. It's filled with ideas from supplies to projects. In the best possible way, I now have tons of new ideas to explore with my art. Thank you, Shari.
