July 6 - July 10


Cold Wax & Oil

Week Two (5-day): July 6 – 10, 2020. Classes run 9 am – 4 pm daily and students are welcome to stay late in their studio.

Cold Wax & Oil

Explore abstract painting using layering, cold wax medium, tube oils, oil sticks, powdered pigments and a variety of implements.

Participants will delve into mark making and ways to create textures and colour fields. Utilizing various tools and techniques, students will “push the limits” of the mediums and welcome the surprises along the way, deciding what works and what does not.

This workshop is well suited to those who have had some prior painting experience. The workshop focuses on the process itself – on the possibilities of that process and how it can be incorporated into individual artistic practice. There will be technique demonstrations combined with student experimentation, group discussions, and printed resources.

Patt Scrivener was born in Nipawin, Saskatchewan and grew up on a grain farm with her four siblings. Although there was always lots of work to do, rural living afforded her lots of time to create. Patt started creating when she could hold a pencil.

Patt enjoys music and expressed an interest at an early age. At age 5 she started piano lessons, went on to finish her grade 8 conservatory, and later studied pop piano and organ. She also picked up her brother’s accordion as well as guitar and ukulele. She discovered her real love in the Celtic harp and today she focuses on playing and teaching this instrument.

After high school Patt moved to Saskatoon and got a job in a flower shop. By age 23 she owned her own shop. After running a successful business for 10 years Patt was ready for new challenges. She went on to study interior design and taught floral design at Olds College and Mount Royal University. In her spare time she continued dabbling in art by studying watercolour, painting on silk, pottery, weaving and silversmithing.
