Advanced Oil & Cold Wax Painting

Elevate your oil and cold wax painting practice with a 4-day advanced workshop.

The workshop covers topics from tone and value to stenciling and masking, working intuitively, and building layers of color. 

You'll also learn how to develop a series and find your personal voice while receiving feedback from our experienced tutor. 

Suitable for those with prior experience in oil and cold wax painting, whether you've taken a previous course or worked independently with the medium. Join us for an immersive learning experience and take your painting practice to the next level!
