    ABSTRACT COLD WAX AND OIL with Linda Benton McCloskey  Beginner to professional instruction. You will learn everything I know about cold wax. It has become my favorite medium. This is an “alternative” to encaustic painting. If you love encaustic, but are afraid of fusing, heat, fumes, this is the workshop for you. Cold wax looks ALMOST like encaustic. You can still texturize, layer, scratch back, and collage, etc. Expect  lots of demonstrations and personal attention. We will focus on color and composition. On a side note, when people visit my studio and gallery, they are most interested in my cold wax pieces because of the luminosity and texture.TUITION: $225 MEM / $250 NON-MEM
