Advanced Encaustic Intensive Course

Ready to learn more about encaustic? Go further? Dig deeper? This is your class!

Building on previous encaustic experience, we will work larger and with more intention. This will be a smaller class (limited to four students) encouraging more dialogue and
more one-on-one instruction. For this class you will bring your own cradle boards (no larger than 24” in either direction) to work on. I will provide everything else including a few 6”x6” boards to get us started and to refresh your art muscles. We will go over techniques and tools and then dive in to honing in on your intent and imagination.

**YOU MUST have taken an encaustic class

prior to this class.**

A complete materials list will be emailed to you.

Guest Instructor

Michele Messenger


Michele is an enthusiastic encaustic artist, eager to share all she knows (and doesn’t know) about this most flexible art practice. She fell in love with encaustic after meeting Victoria Eubanks at an art show, taking her classes, then volunteering as her assistant (and open studio room mother) when Victoria taught at Art Students League of Denver. Michele has been producing and selling her graphic and whimsical artwork since 2015. She says her favorite part of working with wax is the endless directions it can go and how satisfying and forgiving the entire process is. Michele is a freelance graphic designer and finds painting with wax to be a perfect complement to her design work and
vice versa! She is represented at two galleries in the Denver area, participates in summer art shows, and is giddy about teaching at Outside the Box Studio.
