Lori Roll:

Lori sells her work and teaches at galleries and art centers in Oklahoma, Arizona and Maine.  She became interested in the cold wax method due to the rich history, fluidity and textural possibilities of this expressive medium which is gaining popularity in the U.S. and abroad.  Lori has studied with accomplished artists Pamela Caughey, Karen Stamper, Julie Snidle and Catherine Trapani.


We will explore the creative application of oil paint mixed with cold wax medium to create layers, textures, mark making and personal voice.  Work can be abstract or representational.  Lori provides all painting and multi-media supplies.  After introduction and demo, students will explore and paint!  All levels are welcome.  An understanding of design and color mixing is helpful.  This dynamic class is limited to ten (10) participants to allow for one-on-one attention.
