Join author, instructor and mixed media artist, Jodi Ohl during this fun filled and informative online workshop, “Abstracts in Cold Wax and Oil Painting: Exploring Cold Wax Abstracts

Whether you have experience in this genre or are looking to expand your creative repertoire, you’ll find “Abstracts in Cold Wax and Oil Painting” an invigorating and exploratory way to create abstract paintings. Beginner or more experienced, artists will build their skills in a progressive approach throughout the course lesson plans.

During this workshop, students can expect to be introduced to the various supplies used to create interesting and expressive abstract paintings using cold wax medium and oil painting. We will work on a variety of surfaces and explore the many ways to start and build up (or subtract) layers of deeply textured and intriguing works of art. We will also work through traditional principles of design and elements of art to create more cohesive and thoughtful compositions while staying loose and expressive.
Author and instructor, Jodi Ohl will lead students online through videos lessons, course pdf, group chats, and through a private Facebook forum. Lessons can be viewed through streaming (not downloadable) for an unlimited time over on our partner’s website, Creative Workshops (which is a private, password protected website).

Students may sign up before, during, or after course launches. The instructor will be available for assistance primarily during the first 6 weeks of the course commencement, and on a weekly or as needed basis thereafter.

Lesson Plan (tentative)
Introduction: Welcome, Overview of workshop, and discussion of supplies and alternatives
Getting Started: Explore how to begin painting with our new and exciting medium, discover how various supplies work, take the guesswork out of how to work with the products, and tips to be more efficient in the studio.
Project One: Explore working on a specialty paper surface with landscapes and beyond. Students will be exposed to several different ways to create multiple works at once, as well as other design elements as we jump-start the course.
Project Two: Our focus during this chapter will be creating a collection of work that fits together in a cohesive manner yet could stand on their own if separated. We will be focusing on shapes, color, contrast, emphasis, and texture. We will also touch on using basic design concepts to building better compositions.
Project Three: We will work on a larger surface and explore a composition that is an objective abstract which could include (florals, small still life’s, and or figures). We will also focus on value, color, collage options and more.
Conclusion: Discussion will center around finishing work, tips and tricks to move forward, and ideas on what to do next.
Each chapter will run approximately 60-90 minutes, except for the introduction and conclusion. Students can expect to have 5-6 hours of video content included in the course.
