Creating an Alcohol Ink Masterpiece
Alcohol inks are acid free, fast drying, highly pigmented inks that can be painted on most non-porous surfaces, including Yupo paper, velum, and glass. Shelley will lead this hands-on class in which students will create small works on Yupo paper using inks and rubbing alcohol. This class will experiment with non-conventional tools to move the ink around and create unique textures. Students will learn to play with the fluidity of alcohol inks for creating abstract art or expressive landscapes. This media is not traditionally messy; however, students might wish to wear a smock shirt to protect clothing.
This class is open to all levels of artists from beginner to intermediate. No prior experience is necessary.
There will be a fee for this class of $30 for the general public, $25 for current Knox Makers members. All materials and supplies are included in this fee. There will be a 12 person maximum for this class and a 6 person minimum. If the class minimum is not reached by 48 hours prior to the time the class is scheduled to begin, the class will be canceled and all tickets will be refunded.
