March 2020 Cold Wax / Abstract Painting Workshop With Anne Bedrick

Want to learn to paint abstractly, finding your own authentic, original style? 

Like the vibrance of oil paint but dissuaded by long drying times?

Come explore cold wax!  This luscious, odorless oil paint medium cuts drying time and allows you to easily create both textures and transparencies.

In this three-day workshop, I will not only introduce you to the ins and outs of using cold wax medium, but also help you tap into your inner child to confidently play with the paint and explore different techniques.  Then, I will help to empower you to judge what areas to keep and where to continue working to make a cohesive, personal piece or two (or four or ten!) that you feel proud to bring home.

A variety of techniques will be introduced to help you deepen your relationship with abstraction while simultaneously strengthening your understanding of mark making, color, value, and good design. 

This Three-Day Abstract Cold Wax and Oil Paint Workshop takes place only minutes from BEAUTIFUL Palm Springs.

About Anne

Anne has been an art educator for over 30 years, Anne first taught art to adults and then to children. Through her work with children, Anne learned to absorb their immediacy of material and of working in the moment in her own work. Anne decided to begin teaching adults again after realizing that this fearlessness and listening to our inner instincts produced a kind of therapeutic and meditative quality that could be taught to adult painters helping them to create work that is both intuitive and original.

In addition to being a painting instructor and painter, Bedrick is the author of the interactive eBook, Choice Without Chaos, was founder and Co-President of the National Art Educators special interest group Choice-Art Educators, and is a public speaker who presents nation-wide about the value of student-directed learning.

Anne Bedrick lives in Palm Springs, CA and has a gallery and studio space in Cathedral City, CA.
