THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL - EMAIL US TO JOIN THE WAITLIST
14 days offers participants time to develop several pieces by the end of the workshop.
Each participant will get the opportunity to meet individually with Jerry & Rebecca.
There will be in-depth discussions on abstraction, personal voice, and alignment of form and content.
Artists at any level of experience with cold wax, from beginner to advanced, are welcomed. We provide an individualized approach to meet each person’s needs, whether that is for detailed demos of the basics needed to get started, or more advanced ideas and challenges. We’ll get to know you a little ahead of time via a questionnaire so we can understand your goals and level of experience. (Although we encourage beginners in cold wax, we do ask that you have some prior experience with painting in any medium.)
Class will be held each weekday, with weekends and most evenings free. The length of the class will allow you to produce a number of finished paintings, as well as have plenty of time to work independently. We’ll also encourage you to explore the island, its beauty and culture, and find ways to express your experiences in your work.
Rebecca & Jerry will cover ideas, techniques, and other material from his groundbreaking book, Cold Wax Medium: Techniques, Concepts & Conversations. Bringing a copy of the book to the workshop is not required, but is strongly recommended. (Click HERE if you would like to purchase.)
The fee for this workshop is $2,595 USD. This includes breakfast every morning Monday - Friday and two dinners, as well as a supply of cold wax medium and some other basic materials. Participants are responsible for their own flight, lodging, and meals.
