Join local artist Julie Tibus and experience a new or different art medium!

A great way to introduce people to the art of alcohol ink is through easy rewarding art projects! 

What is Alcohol Ink?

The term Alcohol Ink has several meanings. On the one hand, it stands for the painting material used, i.e. the alcohol ink itself. On the other hand, it is also a term for the fluid painting technique used. Like so many other trends, this one originated in America. While this method is still relatively unknown, Alcohol Ink is already experiencing a real hype in America. As the name suggests, Alcohol Ink inks consist of a very large part of alcohol mixed with color pigments.

Alcohol has the property to evaporate very quickly, which has some advantages with this painting technique. The colors dry very quickly due to the evaporation of the alcohol. However, even dried ink can be “revived”, so to speak, if pure alcohol or fresh ink is added. In this way, the painting can be changed at a later date, for example by adding new colors. This possibility is not available with acrylic paints, for example.   -fluid-painting.com


Make 3 Alcohol Ink Succulent Planters:
Use alcohol inks to create your own set of small succulent planters. Choose your favorite colors then learn to drip, twirl, and brush on the inks. Next we will spray them with a fixative and UV coating. Then we plant - pick your succulent and decorative stones and finish off your planter.

Have you always wanted to draw but didn't know how to start? Or have you loved to doodle and dabble and would like to take your interest to the next level?
In this class, local artist Dale Amber, will teach you how to look at objects and break them down into simple shapes to understand size and proportion and then complete them with pencil techniques that will enable you to create a realistic rendering. You will also develop an understanding of how light and shadow are used to give objects a 3-dimensional appearance.

Drawing supplies provided, however students are required to bring a 9" x 12" sketch book.
