CLASS DESCRIPTION:

Break Free from Routine, Embrace Artistic Growth!

Are you an artist seeking a fresh perspective, eager to evolve beyond your comfort zone? Join artist Jodi Ohl in “Exploring Cold Wax and Oil Painting,” a transformative class designed to elevate your artistic journey.

Transitioning from familiar techniques to the captivating world of Cold Wax and Oil can invigorate your artistic expression. Delve into the allure of semi-dimensional textures, unlocking a new realm of creative possibilities.

As an established acrylic painter, I empathize with the desire to explore new mediums. Eight years ago, I discovered the mesmerizing world of Cold Wax and Oil painting—it captivated me, yet the learning curve was real. I understand the apprehension that comes with venturing into something unfamiliar. Let me guide you through this enriching experience, sharing insights and techniques that will demystify this genre and fuel your growth as an artist.

I’m Jodi Ohl, the author behind “ABSTRACTS IN ACRYLIC AND INK,” extending a personal invitation to join me in “Exploring COLD WAX AND OIL PAINTING.” In this immersive workshop, we’ll navigate the use of cold wax with oil paint, crafting a diverse array of paintings, spanning from abstract pieces to an artist choice between vibrant impressionistic florals, figures, or abstract on both wood and paper for your final main piece.

Embarking on a new artistic journey may seem daunting, yet it’s an investment in your creative evolution. You deserve this opportunity for growth. Let’s unravel the mysteries of this medium together. By enrolling in this class, you’ll gain hands-on experience with various tools and materials, eliminating the uncertainty of where to start or what to acquire.

Day 1
• Morning Session will include preparing surfaces, learning about supplies, and watching demonstrations of techniques.
• Learning about Supplies, Mixing Colors
• Layering and beginning compositions
• Afternoon Session will include work on paper and beginning work on wood surfaces.

Day 2
• Morning Session will include a variety of demonstrations and discussions on layering, revealing, and concealing, and
• Afternoon Session will be about shifting, editing, refining, and moving our pieces towards a conclusion.
• How to best cure/dry your paintings, finishing and display advice.

TRAVEL- Cold wax paintings can take several days to fully dry. If traveling by plane, you may want to make arrangements to ship your paintings home. It may be helpful to bring a box the size of 18×18 to add to your suitcase for your paintings. **If you would rather work on smaller pieces due to traveling, please contact us at least 3 weeks prior to the workshop so that we can provide the correct sized surfaces for students to work on.

***Note, we will not be using any turpentine or very strong chemicals in this process, but if you are at all sensitive to fumes, you may want to bring a breathing mask with you.

PREREQUISITE: This workshop is open to all skill levels from beginners and beyond. It’s helpful if you have a desire to loosen up and enjoy the challenge of working in a medium that may be new to you if you haven’t used Oil and Cold Wax previously.
