Leighanna Light 


I am a passionate art instructor, thingmaker, bookmaker, figurative assemblage artist and recovering perfectionist! My background is in fine arts and photography and I’ve been teaching art workshops for the past 20 years at art retreats in the US. I develop my classes by playing, making a mess, making “mistakes” and I can’t think of any better way to live and make a living. I love to create, to hunt for things to create with & to share my creativity with others.  It’s what I live for, it’s my oxygen.

I grew up in a small town in upstate New York and I have spent most of the past 20 years in New Mexico. I am so lucky to live in Taos, the mountains of Northern New Mexico, with my best friends Thomas, Peetie, Ruby, Lily and Hairy.




Layered Faces with Leighanna Light 

In this fun, fast paced workshop we will create an abstract of the face using a variety of techniques to build thick, deep layers on canvas. You will learn how to obtain a beautiful encaustic look without using messy hot wax & crock pots, as well as how to create depth, dimension, texture and contrast using very few and inexpensive supplies. You will learn to embrace your  “mistakes” and you will gain a new perspective on ways to use materials that you might otherwise discard. 

I hope that you can join us for an inspiring art making with your tribe!




  • Create a mixed media face from a variety of materials
  • Learn how to create an encaustic look
  • Learn to alter papers and experience materials in new and surprising ways

This class is open to all artists at every level of experience. Bring your sense of adventure and the supplies on the list emailed to you after registration. The Zoom Login will be emailed a few days prior to the event.
