Vancouver Visual Art Foundation’s online art class series brings monthly classes to your home by professional art instructors.
The Vancouver Visual Art Foundation invites you to get creative with our new Online Art Class series.
Each month, we have invited talented artists from our incredible Art Vancouver alumni to teach their passion through a new and exciting online format.
This month we are inviting you to join us with our own founder Lisa Wolfin as she walks you through creative techniques with alcohol ink.
Alcohol Ink is a fluid liquid, heavily saturated colour with a beautiful dreamy movement, painting technique and is also the name for colors based in alcohol. NO ARTISTIC EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! That is the magic of Alcohol Inks! You can make art on Opus Stone Paper, Yupo paper, or ceramic tiles. Unlike acrylic paints, alcohol inks can be “revived”. This means that when dried ink comes into contact with fresh ink or pure alcohol, it reacts and can be further processed.
If you are sensitive to odours, you may want to avoid this class as the inks are diluted with rubbing alcohol. Please wear paint clothes and gloves.
Students are expected to provide their own supplies in order to participate.
