Whether you are new to this artform or a well- seasoned creative who just wants some well-deserved ‘me’ time, come along and let me provide a safe landing space for you to unwind, have some fun, go with the ‘flow’ and create your own, alcohol ink masterpieces.
In this wonderfully therapeutic workshop you will be introduced to the concept of ‘flow’ art and abstraction using bright and colourful alcohol inks, Yupo paper and alcohol ink accessories. Here, in a relaxed environment, you will be guided by an experienced art facilitator through a range of exciting, fun and easy ‘flow’ techniques, choose and experiment with colour and neutral palettes that intuitively ‘speak’ to you, learn how to embellish your work using symbols and marks that express your unique identity and create originals with a ‘WOW’ factor that you will be proud to frame or use in other art or craft applications.
All materials will be provided and, at the end of the workshop, you will take home 2x small framed original pieces, 1 large unframed work and a folio of multiple art pieces ready for you to apply, (at your own leisure), to your ongoing creative practice at home.
Class sizes will be limited to 15 participants ( min. 5 students) and are suitable for teenagers and adults. No previous experience is necessary.
ABOUT MARTY NUKU
Marty Nuku has been a qualified art educator for the past 20 years in both the public and private sectors of education in NSW and QLD. Marty is currently based in Brisbane and has found that using acrylic inks as a ‘flow’ medium invites a more intuitive approach to artmaking than more traditional styles. Marty says, ‘Line, colour, balance and harmony are achieved through the serendipitous ( the art of happy accident) qualities of this exciting medium allowing me, as a creative and life-long learner, the freedom to explore the high points and subtleties of the mediums , to value the spills and drips, and the opportunity to rework my pieces if I choose, in a way that brings satisfaction and sense of achievement in creating something unique…nothing is wasted!’.
Through research, conversations with other talented creatives and ‘flow’ artists, and with the ongoing passion for sharing her knowledge, Marty brings to the workshop scene an experience that will ignite your own potential to create with ease, be inspired, and open your world to new and exciting possibilities.
