Jessie Fritsch Encaustics
Private Lessons: $60 an hour.
I offer private encaustic art lessons in my studio in my home in Stevens Point. My studio is small so I can only have myself and 2 other people in my studio at one time. I will have a 6x6" birch plywood board to work on. The student will be allowed to use all my supplies and tools. I also have a large collection of books about encaustic that one can look at.
Demos for Groups: $100 an hour. At location only.
There is a $75 service charge. If location is 20 miles out of Stevens Point I will require transportation expenses. Mileage is $0.60 a mile. The demo will include the history of encaustic art and I will bring a painting I am working on to show the group about the process of encaustic art. If there is time after the demo the group will be allowed to try encaustic. I will bring encaustic paper and some stencils for the group to make a small encaustic piece they can take home. The average demo with group participation is 90 mins. Warning: Encaustic vapors can be an irritant for some people, especially those with respiratory problems. It is best that demos are done near a window for ventilation.
You are never to old to learn something new.
I had the pleasure of teaching Jack, 94, how to paint with encaustic.
He loves it and has finished a couple beeswax paintings on his own.
