Explore the endless possibilities of abstracted portrait painting with cold wax! Whether in-person or via Zoom, take a thought-provoking immersion into the use of luminous cold wax with oil paint, mineral spirits, mixed media, mark-making materials, brushes, scrapers, and imagination. Proportion, composition, color, and contrast will be addressed, along with an exploration of visual elements such as line, shape, texture, mass, dimension, and depth. This versatile medium yields rich and emotive surfaces. Develop your own personal expressive creations! All experience levels welcome.
This 2-day format (description below) has proven to be especially valuable in introducing various techniques and layering, bringing work to greater potential!
Additionally, Jane will be providing several videos and PDFs to participants in preparation for the workshop and for future reference.

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
