Working in oil and cold wax is one way to develop texture and form, using your own unique personality to create artwork. Learn the basics of cold wax painting and experiment with a variety of materials with this fun method. Develop design skills and create starts that will become paintings that “speak to you”. During this workshop, Monti will demonstrate basic methods and leave you with lots of time to explore the possibilities in your own work.
Bring lots of enthusiasm and a readiness to learn new techniques. All skill levels are welcome! Each class will build upon the previous day. A supply list will be provided at registration.
This 3-day workshop will meet October 27, 28, & 29 from 1:00pm – 4:00pm. Cost is $200 for the 3-day workshop.
