Waxing Poetic: Two-Day Workshop in Cold Wax and Oil Painting with Lori Roll

Students will learn about this vibrant and popular form of painting with oil pigments and cold wax medium. This malleable medium allows for self-expression.

Day 1: Students will explore the nature of oil paint mixed with cold wax medium to create layers, marks and personal artistic expression. Students will be introduced to the medium, materials, and tools. The instructor demonstrates color mixing, applications, and technique.

Day 2: Students will continue to create and expand personal expression on day two. Having learned the basics and a general understanding of the endless possibilities of this malleable medium, students may expand their repertoire. Students explore techniques including the use of pigment sticks, collage and mixed media. The instructor demonstrates applications and techniques.

No experience is necessary, although prior students may launch into greater exploration.
