Workshops

Cold wax/oil painting: Introductions
10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, October 12, in Valentine, Neb.

Join me for a two-hour session exploring color, pattern, design and abstraction with oil paints mixed with cold wax medium, a product gaining popularity for its versatility and range. I'll show you tools and techniques, and you'll create pieces on archival paper. I'll provide all the materials and supplies. This workshop offers time for creative play. 

If you have household items or tools that might make interesting patterns or textures, please bring them along. Pieces of burlap, corrugated cardboard, bubble wrap, shelf liner, ribbons, and string can all be pressed into the paint surface. And if you happen to have art supplies such as oil paints in colors you particularly like, or tools such as printmaking brayers or palette knives that you enjoy using, then bring those, too. It all can get a bit messy, and I have several aprons, but please wear painting clothes. Cost is $55 per person, which includes all materials. Most participants create 2-4 paintings on paper in a two-hour class. Class size is limited to 8.
