Cost:  $120 for members, $138 for non-members; limited to 10 students

Skill level:  All levels are welcome - some knowledge of “Oil and Cold Wax Painting” is helpful but not required.

This “creativity” workshop is a painting class for artists who would like to “loosen up” and escape the confines of detailed painting and drawing by working with oil paint mixed with cold wax medium.  The focus of instruction will be to create expressive impressionist and somewhat “abstracted” paintings.  This workshop continues what was covered earlier this year but it is not a higher-level class than the first. New students and those from previous workshops will find many exciting paths to explore!
