Advanced Tools & Techniques in Oil & Cold Wax


Neskowin artist, Lynne Wintermute, returns to Hoffman Center in an extended opportunity for students to discover and deepen their experience in painting with oil and cold wax. The oil and cold wax medium bring luminous layers of color and mystery to abstract and landscape paintings. Like archeology in paint, students will learn layering and texturing techniques to create magical colors and tones.

The first workshop session [Saturday, February 6 & Sunday, February 7] will introduce the medium and include instruction on color theory and composition. The second weekend [Saturday, February 20 & Sunday, February 21] will provide students an opportunity to further explore advanced tools and techniques in layering, mark making, and textures. Students may enroll in one or both weekend sessions.

Both workshops will be on Zoom and online
The live Zoom sessions are from 10:00 am to Noon and from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. All handouts, the materials list, and a 30-page notebook covering everything you learned over the two-day course will be online. The materials are downloadable pdf files. Demonstrations during the live segment of each day will be recorded and uploaded to the online class platform. All registered participants will have access to the online workshop until April 30, 2021. It provides additional time to work on techniques and re-watch video demonstrations.

Lynne Wintermute has a degree in Fine Arts from Linfield College and continued with graduate studies at Pacific Northwest College of Arts. She is represented by Dragonfire Gallery in Cannon Beach and has had many solo and group shows throughout the Northwest. As a teaching artist, she teaches a variety of workshops in 8 venues and private and group lessons in her Neskowin Studio. More information here
