A Workshop In the Works

Gamblin Cold Wax

I am excited to announce a workshop is in the works. Through the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (Florida), I will conduct a cold wax workshop on March 16. So many people have asked me to do this that I think there is real interest in learning about this stuff.


Yes, you can just google it and watch videos—there is no shortage online—but I believe it helps to have live instruction and to be able to ask questions in real time.

105 Hogtown Bayou

The workshop will be at the Hogtown Bayou location in Santa Rosa Beach. Down here in the Florida Panhandle, we have names like Hogtown Bayou and lovely buildings in the woods, and we'll be lucky enough to spend a whole day painting in this idyillic setting.

I have a detailed outline prepared so we don't get bogged down in the tight schedule, but here is the gist:

 Morning session (beginning 9:30)

  • You'll receive cold wax, a 10” x 10” wood panel, oil paper, brayer, silicone scraper, palette knives, palette paper, Gamsol and applicator, and miscellaneous items you will find helpful as you explore this exciting medium 
  • You'll learn the basics of painting with cold wax and oil—including how to paint on paper and on wood panels 
  • You'll learn how to add layers of color creatively, what tools to use for best results, and what techniques work well with this unique medium

After a lunch break: 

  • Finishing your work with final layers and textures
  • One-on-one instruction from the artist instructor 
  • Pack up all your new supplies, and take them home with you!
