Alcohol ink has something for everyone; from professional artists to those who have never painted at all!
In this class we will experiment with alcohol inks to learn how these bright, vibrant colors react and interact.
You will learn the basic techniques of painting with alcohol inks using various methods such as free flow, pouring and using various tools to apply ink.
You will be given step by step instructions for using alcohol inks to create beautiful abstract “inkscapes”. I know you will be inspired to continue using this wonderful medium!
