Encaustic paintings by Leslie Giuliani

Create painted, sequenced visual narratives in book or flat form using the ancient medium of encaustic with artist Leslie Giuliani.

Get an inside look at Leslie Giuliani's Visual Storytelling workshop.

Art enhances life, and creativity is for everyone. In this workshop—designed for makers from beginner to advanced—we create visual narratives in book or flat form using the ancient medium of encaustic, a melted beeswax-based paint.

Along with encaustic, we use oil-based pigment sticks, drawing materials, pan pastels, and stencils. We learn the Japanese paper marbling technique, Suminagashi. We paint, make prints, stitch, perforate, and stamp.

Artist and teacher Leslie Giuliani leads us in a highly creative and intuitive process where one thing leads to the next, as you work with energy and curiosity. Text can be added, or the images and textures can just flow. This way, pieces will be infused with life's impulse and inspiration.

Heated palettes, sewing machines, bookmaking supplies, and other interesting tools will be available for experimentation.

Jumpstart your creativity with Leslie Giuliani.
