Adult Workshop: Beginning Alcohol Inks – Level 1

February 8 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Beginning Alcohol Inks – Level 1

Instructor: Joan Willoughby
Feb. 8, 2020; Saturday, 10 am – 1 pm

Alcohol Inks are a form of painting with special inks containing an alcohol base on a nonporous surface. You do not need to be an artist to enjoy this type of painting, but beware; once you start it becomes very addicting and you will want to learn more and more about painting with them.

Joan has been doing Alcohol Ink paintings during the past 6 years and has won several awards for some of the paintings. She sees painting with inks as a cooperative adventure with the inks because they often have a mind of their own, so you just need to coax them along. However, if you decide that what you have done is not to your liking, it is easy to erase them and start again. You just need to give yourself the freedom to explore. It is possible to do representational art with the inks; however, this course will focus on just letting go and being more abstract. A beginning supply kit will be available for the attendees to use, but a few extra supplies will need to be brought as well. Most of these will be available from what you have in your home. Students should bring an apron and protective gloves.
