March meeting schedule and more

Our meeting on Sunday, March 4, will feature Textures for Every Surface, presented by our own Pamela Peterson.  She will demonstrate several exciting techniques and will also teach us a few texture methods during a short hands-on time.  A supply list will be furnished before the meeting, and a $5 studio fee will apply.

Oil and Cold Wax Workshop - Dianne Martia, instructor

$150 members / $165 non-members

Explore the technique of combining oil paint and cold wax. Unlike encaustic, cold wax is used at room temperature, without heat. Incorporate other media such as oil sticks and pigment to create dynamic paintings. You will use an array of nontraditional tools to build layers, create texture, and add depth. This class emphasizes the process and is experimental in nature. Supply list.
