Nanette Newbry



Experience the joy and immediacy of “pulling” an encaustic monotype from a heated encaustic palette. You’ll draw with pigmented wax and incorporate spontaneous mark making that will ignite your creativity and intuition. The results are astonishing and rewarding.  

In this two-day workshop, you’ll learn about setting up a studio, safety measures, paper types and how to use wax medium, pigment, graphite, string, India ink and charcoal in your prints. You’ll have a wide range of mark making tools and have plenty of time to experiment and discover how to create your favorite marks and drawings.

Each day will include demonstrations, individual assistance, Q&A, troubleshooting and plenty of individual time to work. At the end of the sessions, you’ll go home with a suitcase full of new knowledge and experience and a number of finished monotypes.

This workshop is open to all levels. Please watch my demo video for a quick introduction to encaustic monotype printing. 

From beginners to more experienced artists, kick-up your art practice and be motivated by the process. You’ll go home with new skills and art you’ll be proud of.

I recently took one of Nanette’s workshops called Printing Without a Press. Not only was I inspired, but it was so much fun. We were surrounded by beautiful art in a bright and airy studio, spacious workstations and an abundance of supplies. Nanette is such a joy to have as an instructor. She demonstrated the techniques to make prints and transfers then guided us personally to design our own work. We had a wide variety of paints, paper and materials to use and had plenty of studio time to explore and create. What a blast! The atmosphere was so special with great music, the camaraderie of students and visits from Mika, the happiest boxer alive! By the end of the second day we each walked out with a cool piece of art and for myself a renewed love of art making.  Mary R., Oceanside, CA
