Scratching the Surface: An Introduction to Creating with Cold Wax Medium

June 25, 2016, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM


THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW FULL (10 Student limit). If you would like to be added to the wait list, please call 386-427-6975 x 23.  If the list warrants, BJ will consider running a second workshop!

Join artist BJ Lantz as she demonstrates the basics of getting started with cold wax medium & oil paints. This fun workshop will give participants hands-on experience with the medium. Using an array of unusual tools, you’ll experiment with layering, creating textures, marks and interesting surfaces.

Discover this exciting, versatile medium and explore the many ways you can incorporate it into your own process. This introductory class is a great (and required) base from which to move forward to a more advanced workshop planned for the fall of 2016.

A wide variety of interesting tools will be available for use during the workshop but students are encouraged to bring their own drawing implements and mark-making tools as well.

Workshop price is all-inclusive. Wax, paint, solvent, tools, etc. included. Each participant will leave with three panels in progress that they can continue to work on, a small jar of wax medium, a spreading tool and a drawing implement.

INVESTMENT: $145 per person + $35 supply fee

*Please note this is NOT and encaustic workshop*

www.BJLantz.com — BJ Lantz considers herself fortunate to have made a living as a professional artist for the majority of her life – first as an award-winning graphic designer, then licensing her artwork for giftware and home decor products as well as creating her fine art paintings. Inspired by her love of nature, she creates ethereal landscapes and serene abstract paintings. The striking aspects of Lantz’s work are her unique color palette, rich layering and intuitive mark-making. She will often scratch deep into the layers of oil paint and cold wax to reveal an unexpected color in the under-painting. She manages to blend colors and textures in such a way that her work evokes an atmospheric quality and is imbued with an earthy appeal.
