We are proud to introduce the Encaustic Art Institute, a permanent gallery for all encaustic artists. Established as a non-profit 501©, we rely solely on membership fees, donations and grants. 100% of every sale of artwork goes to the artist. The Encaustic Art Institute exhibits and sells encaustic (pigmented wax) art work, offers encaustic workshops, classes and public education programs.
