C516 Calligraphic Cold Wax

Five Day Class
Abstract, Tools & Materials

In this class, you will be introduced to the various supplies used to create interesting and expressive abstract paintings using Cold Wax Medium and oil paints. Because this is a new media to most calligraphers, most supplies will be provided. The class will explore the many ways to build up or subtract from the various layers built with the oil paints. Marks will be made through the layers, exposing the history of the work. Asemic writing can also be added to these intriguing works of art and formal pen lettering can be collaged within the layers. The class will also work through the traditional principles and elements of design to create a cohesive and thoughtful abstract work.
