Hands on Art

Bonnie Griffith: Cold Wax and Oil

LOCATION: Escalante Town Park Pavilion
September 20, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

NOTE: $25 fee collected day of program – covers materials.  Limited to 20 participants. Bring an apron/painting shirt and latex or nitrile gloves. 

Learn the techniques for creating unique, impressionistic and abstract paintings using oil and cold wax medium.  By layering the mix of a variety of oils and cold wax, and using palette knives, brayers and other tools to create texture and depth, you will paint interesting works of art.  Follow along with Bonnie and use your own creative skills in this process to create a painting with this medium.  Each participant will have the opportunity to make their own work of art. 

Bonnie’s love of the landscape prompts her to paint it, and she look for a story to tell when she paints. Her goal is to create art into which the viewer can step into, finding and experiencing their own story.  If that happens, then she has done her job. Although she works out of my Crooked Creek Art Studio in southwestern Idaho, plein air painting leads her across the western US.  These journeys also allow her to share her knowledge of pastel and multimedia in workshops, offered both on location and in her studio.

Bonnie Griffith: Pastel Painting

LOCATION: Escalante Town Park – Hands on Art Tent
September 23, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

NOTE: $25 fee collected day of program – covers materials. Limited to 20 participants. Bring an apron/painting shirt, latex or nitrile gloves, and a sturdy lightweight board such as a mat board or foam core to attach your paper to.  

A landscape pastel painting will come to life with the use of this vibrant dry medium as you paint along with Bonnie to create your own masterpiece.  Learn the basics or perfect your skills of using this medium in this class.  You will learn about doing an underpainting to create depth and interest in your piece, followed by layers of pastels that bring your painting to life. Come prepared to have fun! Pastel paper and the use of pastels will be provided (if you have your own set of professional grade pastels, bring them).
