To Be Announced
Discover an in-depth exploration of advanced cold wax medium techniques and expression! Designed for participants who have previously taken one of Jane’s CWM workshops, this One-Day Intensive will help students to go beyond initial layers of paint, digging deeper into both medium and conceptual considerations. Work on any subject matter- Landscape, Portrait, Abstract, or beyond. Please bring any older paintings to work on if desired, as well as any photo references you may wish to explore. Take your art to the next level and see what is possible with this beautiful and versatile medium!
The itinerary includes:
- working into wet, semi-dry, and dry layers
- discussion of conceptual ideas
- developing personal color palettes and compositions
- expanding into additive and subtractive technique including collage
- group critique
- instructor feedback before and after workshop
The intensive is limited to 7 participants to allow for more one-on-one attention, and can be accommodated either through in-person or through Zoom formats. The class also includes a 45 minute phone consultation beforehand to determine goals and direction, and follow up communication. All questions and avenues welcome!
Originally from Canada, Texas-based artist Jane Cornish Smith’s nomadic childhood, along with her artist mother, fostered an appreciation for creative expression from a young age. Jane produces paintings and sculptural work with diverse materials and subject matter, but has concentrated in recent years on cold wax and encaustic mediums. She has attended artist residencies at the International School of Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture in Umbria, Italy; Vermont Studio Center; and Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and earned BFA, MLA, and MFA degrees. An award-winning artist, her work hangs at the University of Texas at Tyler, Brookhaven College, Texas A&M University-Commerce, Museum of Encaustic Art in Santa Fe, Tenby Museum and Art Gallery in Wales, the Cancer Support Community of North Texas, and others. She enjoys teaching, and making art from her studio in rural Lone Oak, Texas. www.janecornishsmithart.com
