Looking for Friday night date ideas or fun things to do with friends in the East Bay? Bring on the heat and color with this encaustic monotype introduction class.

With guidance from a professional artist instructor, you'll learn art and have fun by making designs and patterns using a hot plate and colored wax paint. Monotypes are a mirror version and one-of-a-kind print. No experience is necessary to succeed in this art class for adults.

Following the lesson, guests will toast each other and their masterpieces with chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne.

Remember: quality time together strengthens your (he)art!

This class is only offered on Fridays. 2-hours in length.

Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, I received my BA from Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, Iowa, and continue my arts education though workshops and specialized instruction. Currently living in Walnut Creek, CA, I am an encaustic painting instructor, working artist and advocate for the arts. In 2020, I co-developed a virtual gallery and developed a YouTube channel called The Encaustic Edge. I also started a business coaching artists, at all levels in their careers. I serve on several art boards, volunteer at galleries in the San Francisco Bay area, and host live and virtual encaustic demonstrations.

Encaustic is an ancient artform that originates with the Greeks and Egyptians. Layers of molten beeswax and a blow torch are my idea of a good time!

Through the years, I have discovered how fulfilling it is to teach the art I love to make. It is my pleasure to feed people’s creative appetites, give them new knowledge and share ideas. My artwork has been exhibited in Turkey, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Washington, New York, and California, and I have collectors around the globe.
