Artist in Residence
Upon her first experience with cold wax painting, Micki found that all the atmospheric and abstract realism that she admired in oils was finally attainable to her via this medium! She has since tested methods and pushed herself to find her artistic voice. Her works often begin with broad strokes of color and develop with the emergence of variations in shape sizes, colors, geometric lines and organic shapes.
In this workshop for beginners, students will be introduced to Cold Wax Medium as a form of painting in an abstract manner. We will discuss the options available to the artist using this medium, including excavation, reduction, and texture. By creating multiple paintings on one substrate, you can explore and compare painting with unexpected color combinations and in monotones. Finally, we will explore how to frame your pieces.
This will be a fun, exploratory class meant for the beginner, during which you can explore a new medium, test whether it is one that you would like to pursue further, meet other curious creatives, and perhaps take home some art you’d like to hang in your home! I look forward to exploring with you! Some supplies are provided. The supply list for the remaining items needed is available online.
