This workshop is for artists working with cold wax and oils who have a basic understanding of how to create texture and layers in this medium, but want to explore the next step – how to create a powerful composition using dynamic color and powerful design. Each student will be encouraged to express their personal voice through emphasis on mixing colors, the importance of grays and glazes, creating strong values (the lights and darks), and meaningful mark making. We will do many exercises that will help each person understand the power of contrast throughout the painting process, and each student will create several small studies to demonstrate key concepts. With this information, each student will be able to approach a painting at any stage of development and understand the “when” and “how” to pull their paintings together to a satisfying conclusion. We will also discuss the importance of an experimental approach and risk taking during the creative process. The majority of workshop time will be devoted to painting, with helpful demos and presentations to better understand key concepts presented. There will also be time for individual critique and discussion of each student’s personal artistic goals and progress.

Beginner and above -
An introductory course in cold wax/oil painting is highly recommended but not mandatory.
