Tuesday, August 9th | 6:00pm-8:00pm | Oil Painting For Beginners Part II: Cold Wax Mediums


Cold wax is an oil paint medium which relies on a combination of beeswax and solvent to make traditional oils thicker and more malleable. While it allows for expressive brush strokes, it really shines when working with a palette knife. This characteristic makes cold wax a perfect beginner's medium, since it gives a clean break off of the brush or knife – retaining the sharp peaks of impasto – and the ability to carve into paint layers with palette knives. It is a perfect way to explore texture and physicality of layers and color without worrying about brush technique. Join us to learn the basics and spend an evening working with cold wax and palette knife painting - you’ll come away with a new view on oil painting!

Please note: No prior oil painting experience required.
