The Encaustic Art Institute is committed to becoming the premier encaustic art center in the nation.
- To become established as a national center for Encaustic Art, by collaborating with other encaustic organizations. Together we can accomplish greater visibility, and promote expanded awareness of the encaustic medium to the public.
- To include any persons that are interested in encaustic art — art historians, curators, scholars, collectors, art publishers and other visual arts professionals — to become a part of EAI. The more freedom of expression and diversity we have, the more we will grow and become successful.
