Encaustic online class ready, finally!!!!

Happy Dancing.  My introduction to Encaustics (plus the second half of the class is  a beginner's encaustic project) is now up on  It's in the Beta phase, but at least it is up and ready for purchase.  Right now, they have Encaustics under a category called Drawing and Painting.  No, doesn't belong there and it might be hard for some to find it.  But, you can put encaustics under the search engine and my class will come right up.  I am hoping that they will fix that soon so that it has a category of its own.

The thing about encaustics is that it just doesn't fit under any category. I will be teaching the intro class, then adding new ones.  Eventually, I will cover every type of encaustics:  encaustic collage, encaustic mixed media, encaustic painting.  The introductory class which I worked really really hard on is pretty much everything you need to know to get started in encaustic art.  I tried to show as many variables in the tools that you can use so that everyone will see the choices that they have of ways to heat the wax, the best substrates to use for encaustics, and so on.  Then, we do a part encaustic collage, part mixed media piece from beginning to end.

Also, you guys know where "I live" and I will be available to anyone and everyone who takes the class to ask questions.  Until that part is up, you can email me at 

Hope you will check it out.
