    Painting with alcohol inks is a relatively new art form that is whimsical, intuitive, relaxing, loose, playful, and downright fun. No art experience is necessary.
    Alcohol inks are brilliantly colored dyes dissolved in alcohol. They are used on any non-porous surface (Synthetic paper, some photo paper, tile, plastic, ceramics, metal, glass, etc.). The inks dance and blend all on their own, magically creating a depth, movement, transparency, and vibrancy not easily achievable with other mediums. Small, supportive, friendly workshops ensure plenty of individual attention.

    Rhea stumbled upon painting with alcohol inks several years ago. Her enthusiasm for this medium is contagious and shows no sign of fading. Her paintings have won numerous first place awards in local art shows and she was recently a featured artist on the National Arts Program website.

    When: Thursday afternoons, 1:00pm - 3:00pm
    (note: although only the next two classes are listed on the WACCO calendar, classes are ongoing every Thursday afternoon unless otherwise noted.)

    Brand new and experienced artists alike are encouraged to attend.

    We will explore painting abstracts, landscapes, flowers, and various other subjects through demonstrations and individual assistance. Some of the many topics we will cover:
    · techniques for working with the unpredictable nature of alcohol ink
    · painting on a variety of non-absorbent surfaces, including several common household items!
    · tools and materials specific to this medium
    · color blending, value, composition, textures

    Organize a group of friends and learn to paint together!
    Celebrate your birthday in color!

    Stunning and very moving! Wish I could join you, but I'm in a financial slump, and also have no place to put anything so lovely in my little cell of a room. So glad to know that you're doing this. I think we met before in an aging group led by Gary. Hope you get some wonderful response. -Sandy Murphey

    Hi Sandy,
    Yes, I remember you.
    You'd be amazed at the possibilities for functional and clever ways to use alcohol inks... I painted the top of the tank behind my toilet! Looks like beautiful granite. My mailbox... tiles in the shower (alcohol inks are not affected by water)... switchplates on the wall...
    And, I'm open to barter. Great way to share skills. Looking in particular for gardening help, organizing, cleaning, handywoman fix-it skills, etc. We can be creative.
    In any case, thanks for your sweet encouragement and I hope I get some wonderful responses, too!
     Rhea
