Curious beginners and experienced painters working in other mediums are welcome to explore Encaustic painting in this four-class series!

Known for its durability, versatility and unique surface qualities, encaustic (hot wax paint) is an ancient art form that has become a popular medium in contemporary painting. Encaustic is both painterly and sculptural and holds endless creative possibilities. This class introduces methods of building dimensional wax paintings on wood panels. Techniques include basics of layering and fusing and the use of various tools for mark making, texturing, carving, incising, collaging, transfers and other surface treatments. Expect to create 2-3 paintings as time allows. This is a small class with a max of 6 students.

All painting materials are included in tuition. Students are responsible for some supplies; see list below.

Students will need to bring these supplies:

  • A roll of PAPER TOWELS (used in every class meeting)
  • Latex gloves (optional, if preferred)
  • Apron


Anne Kneller has enjoyed a lifelong art practice beginning with an early passion for tangibles like cloth, scissors, paint, paper (and spirograph!) In 2013, her creative pursuits led to a deep dive into encaustic painting after seeing examples of the medium at the Winter Park Art Show. This discovery led to years of continuing education under the tutelage of acclaimed encaustic practitioners, instructors, and authors in workshops nationwide. Exhibition and sales of her wax works and teaching opportunities followed. Anne's paintings have been included in gallery shows in Boston and Traverse City, Michigan and featured in various publications including Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine and other mixed media publications. Special recognition has included several best of show awards for her work. A Michigan native, Anne has divided her time between Massachusetts, Michigan and Florida in recent years and currently works in her private studio in Daytona Beach. She studied journalism in college and worked for many years as a graphic designer, gaining early exposure to Macintosh, Adobe and the internet. Her design work has earned various awards from the American Advertising Federation (ADFED).
