Alcohol Ink Art - An Afternoon Wine Down..... playing with Inks!

It sounds like party time and act like it too!.... so I figure we should have a glass of something as we get to know them too! 

I will show you lots of tricks and tips and lots of background info, then you will be trying them all out for yourself.....

You will be creating, flowing and celebrating your achievements in no time at all!  Don't miss this opportunity to begin or expand your repertoire of arty skills, you will find your new love and with a few more lessons you can produce the most stunning landscapes, blooms and abstracts that will take you places! 

I will share all I know and help you with everything you need. 

(All productis supplied for Introductory class, I ask you to buy a small kit for the follow on 5 week lessons)

Alcohol Inks are an exciting new medium relatively unheard of in Australia but getting a lot of interest overseas, which is where I first saw and studied them. I have been using them now for over two years and selling my work successfully in a local gallery for over a year.

Alcohol Inks or AI, are small bottles of pure colour suspended in alcohol, as you paint with them, the alcohol evaporates off, leaving behind the rich colour, sheen and vibrancy. (Photographs do not do them justice).

When I paint with them, I rarely use a paintbrush, but I use lots of other fun techniques, which I will show you.

You don't have to be artistic, just creative and willing to have a go, the Inks will do the rest.  Painting with AI is therapeutic, there is no right or wrong and we create amazing things and .... beautiful whoops! Come and enjoy the latest in art and have fun doing it!

I am a long time artist, having created most of my adult life, in oils, pastels, charcoal and acrylics. But boy oh boy the Inks are my love!

We wear gloves and aprons all provided, so come along, don't wear your best gear.  😊

I offer a 5 week class after the introductory Class is complete. 

What are you waiting for??? 

See you soon!

I ❤️ Alcohol Inks so much I just have to share them with you!

“I first saw these amazing inks while travelling in the USA. Their rich colours and fluidity were amazing and the prospect of what I could achieve with them inspired me to learn all I could.

After years of painting with other media, here was something really different, I wanted to change my art style and this was just what I needed! After lots of practice and happy mistakes I have now developed my own style. I show them in a local art gallery and I often hear comments like ‘wow, that’s amazing’, and ‘how do you do that with inks?’ 

The beauty of the Inks is anyone can be artistic, they just show you how!

Let me share all I have learned and I am convinced you will ❤️ them too!

Jean's Inky class was wonderful, 3 hours full of great information and techniques. Jean's was so attentive to each participant and we all went home with 4 little pieces of deliciously vibrant Inky Art.
