Scheduled workshops are 4 or 5 days long. Special small group workshops or private classes may be arranged if Paula’s schedule permits. Paula Roland’s 1600 square foot studio in NW Santa Fe, NM is a fabulous space for encaustic painting, printmaking, and mark-making workshops. It is also where Paula creates her personal works and she will share her studio set-up tips with you. There, you will enjoy Santa Fe’s big blue skies, views of three mountain ranges, and quiet walks in the pinon and juniper studded hills. JOIN US FOR AN ENCAUSTIC WORKSHOP SOON! It is a FABULOUS experience that you will never forget!
