Yet, unlike encaustics, it is not heated and dries faster than oil paint. Participatns will work on wood panels and papers, delving into color and composition. No experience is necessary and ALL materials are included. Shelton-Mayo is an award-winning artist who teaches at TCC's Visual Arts Center.

OIL AND COLD WAX WORKSHOP 12+

Join in and find out what the buzz is about with cold wax. The emphasis of this fun workshop is on introducing the materials and techniques used in oil & cold wax in an environment that is encouraging and explorative. Unlike encaustic, cold wax is not heated; it dries much quicker than traditional oil paint. The beeswax in the cold wax does allow for some of the drawing in, scraping back and layering we associate with encaustic. Materials list will be mailed or emailed. Class fee includes most materials.

Learn the old cold wax method of creating a painting. It uses beeswax and oil paints in layers and scrapping back to create your artwork. This method is similar to encaustic but does not use heat, thus the finish has a more matte finish. The students will have 4 boards each to work with. Eloise was an award winner in the 2015 Juried Exhibition. All materials will be provided for this class.

Reflections of Art: Artist Demonstration
& Interpretation
With Special Guest Eloise Shelton-Mayo on
Cold Wax Work

A new series of programming employing the use of an overhead mirror gifted to the museum by the Sumi-E Society of America. Each program will host a different artist to share their technique and expertise in a unique medium.

This first program will see guest artist and instructor Eloise Shelton-Mayo who will share her approach to cold wax surface painting. Shelton-Mayo teaches art and design for TCC’s Visual Art Center and focuses her subject matter on “psychological themes of transition, memory, and home” as she layers colors and then scratches through the surfaces to achieve “finishes of aged, worn things.” Eloise has been in many exhibits and won numerous awards, most recently a 2015 Purchase Award at TCC’s Faculty Show. To learn more about Eloise and her art, go online towww.eloisesheltonmayo.com. This event is included with paid admission to the museum.
