Cold wax medium (a paste-like substance mixed with oil paint) offers painters at all levels a wonderful freedom and range of expressive possibilities. In this 5-day workshop, you will explore ways to build up abstract paintings in layers, using cold wax medium and oils, plus other media such as pigment sticks and powdered pigments. Many techniques for working with the visual elements of texture, line, shape, value, color and composition will be demonstrated and practiced in class. Slide presentations will broaden and reinforce your understanding of abstraction. An open, experimental attitude and willingness to engage in intuitive process are keys to getting the most from the overall experience. This workshop is open to all levels of experience with cold wax, from introductory to advanced; your individual needs will be taken into consideration. (We do require that you have some prior painting experience in any medium.)
