This course will appeal to painters of any level, who wish to deepen or rekindle their relationship to their inner muse.  Over two days, you will venture deeper into your painting process and develop your personal expression in a safe, non-judgmental and playful space.  Demonstrations using oil and cold wax, along with a variety of implements, will give you extra tools to assist you in your exploration.  We will be layering, scraping back, using solvent reductions, adding pan pastels, stamps and stencils, and much more.  Experimenting with a variety of tools such as brayers, clay modeling tools and 'squeegies', we will create beautifully rich surfaces.
Some supplies required.
