MASTER CLASS: Cold Wax Painting
with Anne Hebebrand
Monday, September 7, 2020 - 9:00 AM
Working with cold wax and oil is a very direct and immediate way of painting. The focus of the class will be on the discovery of various techniques, experimentation and risk taking during the creative process. There will be plenty of time to paint during this five day workshop, interspersed with demos and presentations and lots of one on one instruction.
Students will work on a series of small studies creating textured and vibrant surfaces through the layering of colors, excavating and mark making. Compositional elements, intentions and art practice questions will be discussed in an informal manner.
The workshop is well suited for those who have had some painting experience and for those who are looking for new ways to enrich their current art practice.
Class takes place Mon–Fri, Sept 7–11, from 9am–4pm daily.
Age and ability: 16 yrs. and older, beginners and intermediates
