Enter the colorful & magical world of Alcohol Inks! In this beginner workshop, you will learn a variety of techniques and tips with the guidance of mixed media artist, Laura McGann. Alcohol inks are quite versatile and in this class, you’ll be exposed to a variety of possible expressions. Finding your style has never been more fun! No artistic experience needed — really!!
Please note: This course is adults only (21+). Please also note that using alcohol inks is not advisable for pregnant women or those with serious respiratory issues. The studio is well-ventilated for this level of AI exposure.
When & Where: Please note that due to the historic nature of the building, this facility is NOT handicap accessible. You will climb two sets of stairs to access GP Studios.
What you’ll learn: You will explore the different effects you can create by using these vibrant inks and how they interact together. Learn about the different application methods and substrates that can be used with alcohol ink to achieve gorgeous results.
What you’ll get: Demonstrations and hands-on experimentation with the inks on several substrates. You will leave with lots of ideas, a handful of experimental works, supplies & resource links to further develop your technique at home.
What to Bring: Nothing required. Feel free to bring snacks, beverages, chocolate-covered strawberries, jellybeans… whatever makes you happy. Inking & drinking (BYOB) is allowed, so long as you don’t drink the ink. : -)
What to Wear: Alcohol inks can stain. You’ll be most comfortable in a painting smock, old clothes, yoga pants, sweatshirts, flip flops… come as you are. We’re a judgment-free zone.
