Coming to the Mendocino Art Center for the fourth year, this popular workshop offers an opportunity to immerse yourself in oil and cold wax abstract painting. Mendocino is a great place to get away from daily routines, concentrate on artwork and work with new techniques and materials.


This workshop focuses on abstract painting experiments using oil paint, cold wax, pigment sticks, graphite, solvents and powdered pigments, applied with unconventional tools: brayers, palette knives, wide brushes, scrapers, incising tools and handmade stencils.

Cold wax techniques form the basis for developing texture, line, mark making and color fields. Students learn to build up layers as well as to subtract areas, revealing hidden marks and color. Each student’s personal art language is nurtured by the process of working on multiple pieces at the same time, creating opportunities to explore a small body of work.

PowerPoint presentations and discussions of contemporary painting supply the creative groundwork for new directions. Individual feedback helps each student develop ideas for both work in class and continuing practice in his/her own studio.
