Session 3 and 4
Painting with Alcohol Inks- Bring Aprons and Gloves!
Alcohol Ink is a highly pigmented and quick-drying medium applied by pouring or brushing onto a non-porous surface such as Yupo. The vibrant colors of this ink intermingle creating unique textural effects, often leading to unexpected results. This two and a half hour workshop will begin with a short introduction to alcohol ink as a painting medium and a demonstration of the many ways to move and control the inks. The remaining time will be used for personal exploration in a creative and playful atmosphere of discovery. The outcomes are limitless and each student will have time to complete many small works.
