Abstract Oil and Cold Wax Medium Workshop with Micki High

Monday, Wednesday, Friday, October 5, 7, 9: 9 am-Noon

Back by popular demand, Micki delivers a 3-day morning intermediate-level workshop for returning students. Participants will begin each day with a 15-minute warm-up exercise on Arches oil paper, using a black and white, monochromatic and tertiary palette, one each day. Students will produce 3 paintings on multimedia artboard and one on a cradled panel, developing them over the 3 days. Students will be introduced to mark-making and its use throughout the development of their painting and several examples of mark-making tools such as china markers, graphite crayon, sharpies and charcoal. Students will learn reductive techniques and the use of Gamsol. In addition, we will discuss how to create a harmonious palette, gray scale for creating limitless palettes, and principles of design, including shape, contrast and movement as applied to the students’ paintings, leading to a desired finished piece. Some supplies provided; a supply list is available online for the remaining recommended supplies.
