Intuitive Abstraction in Oil & Cold Wax with Dianne Martia 
June 5 – 7; 10 am – 4 pm
Levels: I, II, III

Explore the technique of combining oil paint with cold wax medium to create abstracted paintings using an intuitive process. Unlike encaustic, cold wax is used at room temperature without heat to extend the oil paint and serve as a medium. Non-traditional tools will be used for applying the paint, for mark-making and creating texture. Incorporate other media such as marble dust, charcoal, graphite and pigments. Through an additive and subtractive process, you will create layers rich in surface and subsurface texture, translucency and depth.
Tuition: $400 Member
$450 Non-Member
