Learn all about encaustic painting for beginners with talented, local artist Melissa Stephens. All skill levels can join in and have fun making a series of small masterpieces on 3x3, 4x4, or 5x5 inch boards.

You will create a series of mini paintings using hot wax, using your own creative style, and walk away with new skills. Experiment with different brush techniques, integrate color theory and texture and create a small body of artwork that works together as one.

This art class is completely hands-on and interactive. After experimenting with newfound skills, let your imagination guide you to create a memorable series of miniature paintings. The end result will always be unique, colorful, and rewarding.

Work in Melissa's studio in Walnut Creek, or she can come to you. Getting creative with hot wax is a great way to bond as a group and is perfect for all your team-building events, bachelorette parties, or friendly get-togethers in the Bay Area.

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.
