Introduction to Alcohol Ink Painting

Linda Welch & Yvonne Tyson

August 2 | 9 - 4

Designed for the curious beginner, come paint with the freedom of alcohol ink with emerging artist Linda Welch and alcohol ink painter Yvonne Tyson, both members of the Alcohol Ink Art Society. Alcohol inks are brightly colored, acid-free, dye-based paints that create free flowing textures and design, are fast drying evaporating quickly, requiring a non-porous surface such as synthetic paper, ceramic tile, or a specially prepared canvas. Play with a variety of techniques on different surfaces while Linda and Yvonne will give personal attention to each student. Your artwork will receive a series of protective spray coatings and UV archival protection to ensure longevity. No experience needed to have fun in this class. A supply list will be sent and is available at www.theclearing.org.
