This class introduces the basics of working with the increasingly popular mixture of cold wax medium and oil paint. During this 6-week course, there will be explanations, demonstrations, and hands-on painting and experimentation. Janet will discuss the unique qualities of cold wax medium, the basic tools used, surfaces, and safety. Participants will explore the mixing and applying of cold wax medium and oils on oil paper with numerous tools, using various techniques. Students will experiment with layering, creating texture and mark making. If time allows during the last class, we will participate in a short and friendly class critique. Every student will receive a 5″ squeegee and a 4″ soft brayer to add to their supplies

Cold wax brings an element of the unexpected to the process of painting which is ideal for abstract artists and those yearning to work more abstractly and intuitively.

No painting experience is necessary.
