This class is a wonderful opportunity for participants to learn about the exciting new technique of Encaustic Monotypes combined with mixed media. You will be adding layers to create depth, mystery and light as you learn to paint with non-toxic colored wax pigments that are melted on a hot box and transfer to your paper. This process can be repeated in a very painterly manner, building up layers, depth and transparency.

I teach how materials behave, and their properties, so that once we understand their intrinsic nature, we can manipulate and combine them in various medias.
We will begin with layers of prints, drawings or photographs to which we will add encaustic monotype (beeswax)… At this point we will laminate the work onto a wood panel, canvas, paper or other support.

We can then proceed to work with cold wax, oil pastels and oil glazes as added layers to further deepen the work.

Composition, color theory, line and simplification will be addressed to achieve maximum success.

This class is highly recommended to help participants at all levels loosen up and grow in their artistic development.


EVELYN KLEIN is a full time professional artist and educator. Born and raised in Santiago, Chile, she moved to Montreal, graduating with a BFA, majoring in art education. She specialized in printmaking, creating exclusive limited edition prints for corporations and commissioned works for hotels, private homes and corporate offices, as well as exhibiting nationally and internationally.

“Moving from Montreal to California 14 years ago, where I worked with leading master printers and established artists, it led me to establish my own print studio, Equinox Press, which has blossomed into a unique non-toxic facility offering the latest innovations in printmaking and painting. It responds to the need of a vibrant and artistic community, offering a place to work as well as receive instruction and guidance, from image making to framing, preparing portfolios for jury applications, Photoshop assistance and more. Above all, I offer a supportive, stimulating and safe place where artists and students can create, share and exchange ideas.”

“During the past few years I have been pulled more and more into teaching, which has taken over a large part of my artistic career. I love the creative exchange, finding much satisfaction in sharing my discoveries and new techniques as well as receiving valuable information.”
