Process – Purpose – Passion: Oil & Cold Wax Abstract Painting Workshop
James Edward Scherbarth
In this 3 day workshop artists are introduced to a process of building abstractions through the use of layers & colour interactions utilizing cold wax medium, tube oils, pigment sticks, powdered pigments and a variety of implements. Students will explore new ways to create textures, color fields and mark making. Utilizing various tools and techniques we will “push the limits” of our mediums and welcome the surprises along the way deciding what works and what does not. We explore Process-Purpose-Passion in this workshop which is well suited for those who have had some prior painting experience and who enjoy the sharing, flexibility & happenstance of a group environment! The workshop focuses on the process itself – on the possibilities of that process and how it can be incorporated in your individual artistic practice. Once comfortable with the basic techniques we start to look at form and content, deliberate and accidental mark making, starting points, titling of work, working in series all within the discussion of process-purpose-passion. Technique demonstrations combined with student experimentation, group discussions and printed resources makes this a liberating experience which will enhance your appreciation for the content and meaning within abstraction. This workshop is appropriate for Level 1 (beginners) and Level 2 (artists already working in oil/wax & looking to further develop their skill). Jim will work with each artist at their pace and their experience level with the medium.
