Abstract Painting with Oil & Cold Wax

Come and explore a new medium! Wax has a long and esteemed history in art and writing. Wax tablets were used with writing as early as the 7th Century BC. Today, wax has evolved into a translucent medium that is mixed with oil paints. Cold wax can be worked into a textural surface as well as making an ideal surface for carving marks. It is also possible to encapsulate and suspend collage elements within this medium. Often used abstractly, carving patterns and making marks in the wax is used widely by the abstract artists who work with oil paint and cold wax medium. Materials fee includes kit provided by the instructor. See supply list for additional supplies.
