Winter Classes for Adults

Oil Painting

Cold Wax Alchemy and Open Studiowith Gina Louthian-Stanley
5 Mondays: January 27 through March 2 (no class Feb.17) • 5:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m. • $225.00
Cold wax oil painting mediums create luminous, glowing surfaces, capable of fine detail and subtlety, without the use of heat. We will create original pieces and explore effects possible with the cold wax medium by using it as a surface treatment to create completed paintings, collages, and incorporate mixed media (including copied photos), by adding wax with various ‘found’ tools. All skill levels would benefit from this class, especially beginners. For previous cold wax participants, Gina will offer demos and critiques, and be there to assist in developing your visual journey. *Bring oil paints, and Arches oil paper or recommended 8” x 8” birchboard panels, an old used giftcard, wax paper, Wet Ones, and a 12” palette knife or icing spreader. Gina will bring tools and several materials for you to try, plus furnish one jar of cold wax. (Needs 4 to make) Use form at left to contact Gina with questions.register_button

Mixed Media

Wabi-Sabi Mixed Media Accordion and Bound Bookswith Gina Louthian-Stanley
Two Days: Saturday & Sunday, January 11 and 12 • 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. • $125.00 (plus 25.00 for supplies to make two books.)
This is a great way to create enchanting, mystical mixed media works and fold and bind them into small books or journals! The Wabi-Sabi aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”. Learn a new way to approach mixed media collage on the first day, and create small books from those collages on the second day! We will also learn three ways to create image transfers. Each participant will have access book binding tools to use, a variety of patterned, and fibrous papers, and two large base sheets to collage onto. Permanent waterproof pens, various inks, acrylics, and stains will be shared with the class. Please bring scissors, paper towels, and Wet Ones. If you have these on hand: vintage papers, ephemera, handwritten paper, laser copies with small images (3” or less.). You can never have enough paper! Beginners welcome.
