Robin Samiljan

Creating visual depth, texture, and movement are the guiding forces in Robin's encaustic work. She uses pure color combined with shape and form to create energy and motion on a flat surface.

Robin's teaching style:

Each week she introduces a new technique using the encaustic medium. Students learn by hands-on experiences, exploring mixed media encaustic painting and finding what technique works best for their individual interests.

Robin loves EAC because . . .

It provides a safe, un-intimidating environment allowing students to open themselves up to the learning process. The classes are small and providing individual attention is always a priority.
