Cody Oldham is a young professional wildlife and landscape oil painter who has been painting since he was eleven years old. He is always learning and experimenting with new subjects, styles, and techniques. Growing up in beautiful Colorado, he is constantly surrounded by the wildlife and landscapes he enjoys painting. He began his artistic career experimenting with abstracts, wildlife, and dinosaurs (as any kid would). Cody started by sculpting dinosaurs, before going on to paint them. New York artist James Gurney inspired him to paint dinosaurs and is still a major influence on Cody’s work today.

After painting and sculpting dinosaurs for a period, he found his mentor, New Zealand-based artist Andrew Tischler, at which point his artistic approach evolved. Andrew has helped him with painting techniques, the business side of art, and much more. Cody also studies how great artists such as Robert Bateman, John Banovich, and Norman Rockwell created their beautiful masterpieces, which has helped his career progress rapidly. Over the past few years, he has studied different styles of painting and settled on Impressionistic Realism. Through his work he
attempts to convey a sense of reality.

Workshop Materials List

1. Clay – Chavant Le Beau Touche. Get the regular clay, not HM (high melt).
2. Clay warming devices, a metal bucket with a clamp on heat lamp or 100 W bulb works great.
3. Tie wire.
4. Aluminum foil.
5. Scissors.
6. Favorite sculpture tools.
7. Plank of wood (pine) approximately 8″ x 8″ x 2″.
Bring as many planks as you wish…the wood is used as the base for your sculpture.
8. Plumber’s pipe, 1/2″ threaded: Bring several different lengths…up to 10″…not PVC pipe.
Plumber’s pipe T joint.
Plumber’s pipe couplers.
Plumber’s pipe flange.
9. Screws and screwdriver to secure the flange to wood…this may be done before you arrive. (Place flange in the center of plank)
10. Wire cutters
11. Needle nose pliers
12. Rubber mallet.
13. Spatula
14. Measuring devices such as rulers, measuring tape, dividers, and calipers.
15. Because we concentrate on BIRDS IN FLIGHT, live models in the classroom are more distracting than useful. I will demonstrate the technique of constructing a cantilevered bird armature that can be used for many different bird species and will show you how to assemble shapes to capture the “gist” of the specific bird.
16. Bird field guides such as Peterson, Stokes, Golden, or Sibley. Sibley’s Guide to Birds (not Sibley’s Guide to Bird Life and Behavior) is best if bringing only one field guide. This popular book can usually be purchased at any bookstore.
17. Bring your laptop to the class if possible.
18. Bring your sketchbook.
