inspired. Artist Workshop with Stephanie Lee
Join Stephanie for a 4 day plaster/painting exploration workshopl. Get ready to explore with paint, surface treatments, and encaustics for the next 4 days. The weekend will also include making our own substrates with plaster and found materials to then paint/encaustic on, make into journals or folios, etc.

This workshop is designed to offer you a comprehensive and exciting exploration in working with plaster, paint, and encaustics! To kick off our time together, we’ll focus on substrate preparation including in depth exploration of texturing techniques and inventive and economical ways to build our own substantial, yet lightweight, substrates. We will also experiment with various plaster recipes for use in different forms of artwork such as wood, canvas, altered books, three dimensional/sculptural work and more.

We’ll then spend much of our time diving into the nuances of creating textural effects and how to work paint on our substrates in unique ways that only a plaster + paint combination can give us. Finally, a primer in encaustic medium and how to combine it with our plaster pieces will add even more texture and richness to our pieces.

Expect to develop a new addiction in the process of immersing ourselves in the beautiful and limitless horizon of plaster + paint + encaustic.

Workshops Policies
Half-day, full-day, multi-day workshops, and special events are scheduled throughout the year. Once you purchase a workshop you will be enrolled.

If you would like to enroll in a workshop that has been sold out, please send an email to and you will be put on a waiting list.

Due to limited class size, purchased spots for all workshops are transferable but payment is non-refundable.

What this means: If you buy a class spot and are unable to attend, and if there is a waiting list of students that has formed, we will put you in contact with the first person on the list to whom you can offer your class spot. If the person on the list accepts, then that person will need to pay you for your spot and once that transaction is complete and both parties are satisfied, we will transfer your spot to the other person. If you are unable to attend and there is no waiting list, we will unfortunately be unable to provide refunds.

Emergency Cancelations
In the very rare event of an emergency or unavoidable natural disaster or act of God, the class may be cancelled. In this situation, all fees will be reimbursed to students in full.
