Jerry McLaughlin and Rebecca Crowell take their highly respected teaching practice beyond the classroom with this High-Definition (HD) video that packs in all the demonstrations, techniques, and topics they present in the 5-day workshops they teach around the world.  Over a year in the making, it was filmed and edited by a professional team of videographers and is nearly 7 hours long!



Through this companion to their acclaimed book, Cold Wax Medium: Techniques, Concepts & Conversations, new artists as well as experienced professionals will learn and be inspired by Rebecca and Jerry's knowledge on everything from setting up your art studio, tools and supplies needed, to learning the techniques of building your foundation layers, creating texture, transfer techniques, mark-making, masking, stenciling, reductive techniques such as scraping and solvent reductions, combining chalks and pan pastels with cold wax medium, to demonstrations of mounting your finished art pieces for display or sale.

In addition to the practical and technical content, Rebecca and Jerry discuss the elements of art and approaches to abstraction, plus other tips and information.

Also, watch each of them take a painting from beginning to completion.
