Alcohol inks, highly pigmented and quick drying, differ from other fluid mediums as they flow, intermingle and create distinctive textures, often with unexpected results. One of the benefits of painting with alcohol inks is the opportunity to begin with an abstract composition and then, as the alcohol evaporates and the ink pools, to see the possibility of adding realistic elements.

THE ART OF PAINTING WITH ALCOHOL INKS Beginners/Intermediate is designed for all levels of experience. Instruction will be divided to accommodate all, introducing beginners to strategies in working with this exciting medium and, for those with experience, designed to build upon their prior experience. Students may also learn more advanced techniques in painting with this medium and will have an opportunity to work in a larger format, if desired.

During the five-hour workshop students will explore the unique qualities of alcohol ink and how it may be used for flowing abstracted works with the addition of representational elements. Attention to design and color will be emphasized and opportunities to create florals or landscapes using brushwork will be included for those who wish. Class time will be divided between demonstrations of the unique possibilities in painting with this medium and time for personal exploration., experimentation with a sense of creative playfulness is encouraged.

Materials student will need to provide: A paint shirt or apron
