Quotes from Martha's students:
Martha is a welcoming, kind hostess who is knowledgeable and passionate about her subject. I had no prior experience with encaustics and Martha quickly informed me about the basics, then she gave me room to explore on my own. She is a very good teacher who is interested in her student’s enjoyment of the material. I particularly liked how well structured her class is and I appreciated her generosity. I recommend taking this class, especially if you are a beginner in the medium.
We thoroughly enjoyed Martha’s class. She was a great teacher and host. Would definitely come back and recommend to others.
Martha’s class is really fun. She is an excellent teacher and an accomplished artist. Whether you are an experienced artist or just wanting to try something new, you will enjoy an afternoon in Martha’s studio. Encaustic is a unique medium with many possibilities.” -Aviva
My daughter and I had a great time. Highly recommend!
Great experience I learn so much. My mother in law thats a artist love the class. It is a hands on experience that you’ll love. It opened tons of ways to express my photos in a way that I didn’t knew it existed.
This was such a fun class! I didn’t know what to expect, and it was great. There are lots of different techniques to play with and many options for layering - each piece can be so different from others as well as from what you think you’ll get when you start out!”
Martha is very kind, patient and understanding. I really enjoyed the class as it was really chill. You can also bring home an artwork at the end of the class.
Martha was a welcoming host and informative teacher. She made sure we were all comfortable and eased us into using the hot wax. I thought it was a very interesting medium to work with and had a lot of fun!
Seriously, if you ever wanted to try encaustic, this is better than any starter kit you could buy! Amazing and I will be back! So much knowledge and skillset. I loved her art.
Martha was wonderful. The hot wax art we made was beautiful. It was fun and we learned so much.
Great experience! Martha was a supportive teacher and accommodating host; she helped us acclimate to the creative process nicely and made sure that we were comfortable throughout. The medium is unique but Martha paced the instruction well - one of a kind art is the end result!
Martha’s welcoming, knowledgeable, and shared her love of art and the medium of encaustic with us! We had a great time as we learned! I enjoy learning from new people because they always add something different, and this was true with my experience with Martha. What a great way to spend a few hours with friends!
