-Special Interest Classes!-

Cold Wax Alchemywith Gina Louthian-Stanley
2 days: Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7 • 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. • $175.00 plus a $45.00 material fee for cold wax and other class medium to use, payable to Gina at the beginning of class
Cold wax oil painting mediums create luminous, glowing surfaces, capable of fine detail and subtlety, without the use of heat. We will look at actual examples of various working methods, create original pieces and explore surfaces and effects possible with the cold wax medium and oil. We’ll use it as a surface treatment to create completed paintings, collages, and incorporate mixed media (including laser copied photos), by adding wax with various ‘found’ tools. All skill levels would benefit from this class, especially beginners. Bring your oil paint, and wood panels (or Arches oil paper), wax paper, paper towels, wet ones. Use form at left to contact Gina when you sign up, and for more info and optional supplies to consider. Lunch breaks both days.register_button

Summer Classes for Adults

Adults, May

Printmaking Lino-Cutwith Gina Louthian-Stanley
3 Classes, Mondays, May 20, 27, and June 3 • 5:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m. • $130 (all materials included) • Ages 14 through Adult

Great for beginners! Using relief-printing techniques, learn how to create a linocut relief print by creating an initial drawing or image of choice, then transferring and carving it onto a linoleum block to be printed. Relief printing is the process of carving away material on a flat surface. The remaining surface is then “rolled” with ink and pressed onto paper to make a final print. Students will get two small blocks (up to 4” x 6”) to carve for creating their own hand carved linocut relief print, 10 sheets of printing paper, two blank greeting cards with envelopes, use of inks and use of tools. (*More paper and lino blocks available for purchase.) Use form at left to contact Gina with questions and to confirm registration so she can order materials. Needs 4 to make, limit 10.register_button

This is a great way to create enchanting, mystical mixed media works and fold and bind them into small books or journals!

Bring scissors, paper towels, and one small bottle of Liquatex or Golden gel medium, matt.
