Jane Cornish Smith's 2-day Cold Wax Workshop
Abstract Compositions and Abstract Landscape
To Be Announced
The cost is $475.00 which includes MANY supplies (supply and registration info below)
Explore the endless possibilities of abstract painting with cold wax! Take a thought-provoking immersion into the abstract use of luminous cold wax with oil paint, pastel, inks, mineral spirits, mark-making tools, brushes, scrapers and imagination. Composition, color and contrast will be addressed, along with an exploration of visual elements such as line, shape, pattern, texture, mass, and depth. This versatile medium yields rich and emotive surfaces. Develop your own personal expression in this fun and freeing workshop!
This new 2-day format (description below) has proven to be especially valuable in introducing techniques, layering and bringing work to greater potential! If you've participated in Jane's workshops and would like to continue working on a previous piece or pieces, and get feedback, please bring them with you!
