In October, 2015 and Feburary 2016 we had great trips and wonderful experience for ten artists from around the world, for the instructors, and for those who came as guests. We painted every day, ate fabulous Spanish lunches together. and toured the museums, cathedrals and highlights of Malaga. And we are doing it again ! This time, right before the amazing Spanish Easter week, so that you can come for the workshop and stay for the festivities!

Our explorations of the city and its surroundings will provide inspiration for our studio time. We will work on paper and panels, exploring the encaustic medium as it allows us to express our reactions to local experiences. We will cover all the encaustic basics but also explore a variety of exciting new techniques. This workshop is appropriate for beginning to advanced encaustic artists.
