Waxing Poetic: Painting with Oil and Cold Wax

Teacher: Lori Roll

Students explore the malleable nature of this ancient medium using wax with oil pigments to create layers and abstract expressions. After an introduction to materials and possibilities, we explore the tactile properties and delightfully unpredictable nature of the medium. Mixing, color tips and application are demonstrated and taught. We will paint several small but mighty masterpieces on oil paper. 

10:00 am – 4:00 pm.

Ages: Adults (including high school age) 

All levels from Beginner to Advanced 

$73 + $15 for painting supplies.

Supplies: Students should bring a 50 ml tube of Titanium White oil paint, a spool of blue painter’s tape and a 9″x12″ pad of 12-sheets of Arches Oil Paper. All additional materials and tools are included in the workshop fee. Wear old clothes or an apron.

Lori Roll learned about art, color and composition by observing nature and as a student of photography at the University of Tulsa where she earned her B.A. in Journalism/P.R. She has worked with jewelry, collage, pottery, acrylic and oil painting and has sold her work at galleries in Maine and Oklahoma.

Lori teaches with a hands-on approach to learning, encouraging students to step outside their comfort zones to explore and implement new creative skills.
