In Person-Oil and Cold Wax Painting with Micki High

Friday, April 23:  9 am-1pm

Saturday, April 24:  9 am-12 pm

Sunday, April 25:  9 am- 12 pm

In this class for beginners, students will receive a thorough introduction to this exciting medium, which allows for techniques and long work times that no other medium can offer. Once oil paint is mixed with the cold wax, the combination is that of frosting and it spreads like butter! We will paint in an impressionist and abstract manner. Students are encouraged to bring photo references of either gardens, landscapes, or flowers. You will be working on Arches Oil paper and, if you wish, Encausticbord panels (optional). We will discuss harmonious palettes, gray scale, activating your substrate, working in black and white, monotones, triads and use of various tools to develop your paintings. Students will complete one to two paintings suitable for matting and framing.

Past students have expressed positive feedback on the energy of this fun class, the pleasure of discovering a new medium, and the fun they had creating.

Some supplies are provided; supply list for remaining items is available online.
