"Abstract Painting with Oil and Cold Wax"
August 27-28, 2022
 

Come and explore a new medium! In this class, you will learn about building multiple layers with cold wax and oil paints. The wax and paint will be brushed, smeared, and spread into a pleasing composition of layered, translucent color. Once the layers are built, you can work back into them, making marks and patterns. When layering paint, understanding color theory is very important, particularly with translucent paint. You will spend some time mixing colors and see how far you can “push” the paint colors that are provided. The end result of this time spent emerged in wax and paint will be several abstract paintings.

"Exploring Oil and Cold Wax Painting"
September 23-25, 2022
 

When I discovered oil and cold wax painting five years ago, I was instantly hooked! I’m here to make your learning a little less intimidating by sharing with you everything I know about this genre, so that you can grow as an artist no matter what your experience. We will discover how to use cold wax with oil paint by creating abstract samplers and full-sized paintings on wood and paper. We’ll cover preparing surfaces, favorite techniques, layering, revealing, concealing, shifting, editing and working with colors. Trying something new can be scary, but it can also be an investment. Aren’t you worth it? If growth as an artist is a priority, let’s take the mystery out of this medium together!
