Wax, Paper, Scissors: Exploring Encaustic and Paper

July 15, 2018 – July 21, 2018

Erin Anfinson

This workshop focuses on learning to create imagery with encaustic-infused paper and other collage materials. Following an introduction to basic painting and surface preparation techniques, students learn how to prepare and infuse a variety of papers, printed imagery and other permeable materials with this versatile wax-based paint. Through a series of classroom demonstrations, participants discover how these encaustic-infused elements can be cut, layered and manipulated in an exciting number of possibilities. Whether your work is abstract, representational or somewhere in between this workshop will have something for you! Open to all skill levels.


Erin Anfinson lives in Murfreesboro, Tennessee where she is an associate professor of Art at Middle Tennessee State University. She regularly exhibits her encaustic and animated work and was recently awarded a National Park Service Artist Residency at Herbert Hoover National Historic Site in West Branch, Iowa.
