“Painting with Cold Wax and Oil” with Ruth Armitage
March 28 @ 9:00 am - March 30 @ 4:00 pm350$ - 375$
Revel in texture and color in this workshop exploring the properties of Cold Wax Medium. If you’ve been hesitant to get into oil painting because of the slow drying time, this class will teach you a different tune. No fuss cleanup, little odor and layering magic will seduce participants. Join Ruth for a workshop inspired by nature, but leaning toward the abstract using cold wax medium along with oil paints. Learn how to create your own medium, layer opaque and transparent pigments, incise, build up texture and more. Participants will work on multiple wood panels over the course of the workshop, culminating in several finished pieces. Techniques will include different types of paint application, reductive and layering techniques, and mark making shape, color and texture galore. Pre-planning and intuition will work hand-in-hand to lead artists to creative compositions. An open and adventurous attitude and imagination are the only pre-requisites.
