PAINTING LANDSCAPES IN ALCOHOL INK
All Levels Welcome!
Instructor: Mary Wojciechowski
Date/Time: December 3rd, 10am-3pm
Location: RIWS Classroom (Lower Level Gallery)
Alcohol Ink is a highly pigmented and quick-drying medium applied by pouring, brushing or stamping on a non-porous surface such as Yupo. This workshop will explore the unique qualities of this painting medium that may be used for flowing abstracted works, representational images and subjects that incorporate both. Landscapes will be the primary subjects during this class, taking full advantage of these vibrant colored inks that intermingle in ways that create unique textural effects, often with unexpected results.
This workshop is experimental and explorative and the very nature of the inks offers a sense of creative playfulness during the process. Class time will be divided between demonstrations and students creating many paintings on a variety of sizes of Yupo.
All supplies will be provided for this workshop and will have a $5 material fee per student paid to instructor on day of class. Just bring an apron or shirt and perhaps a little lunch for yourself, that’s all!!!
