Landscape Alcohol Ink on Yupo, with Alice

Come and try something new or try it again. You will use a piece of Yupo paper to experiment with the alcohol inks and utensils. Then I will give you another piece of Yupo paper 6 X 9 Inches to create a landscape background using the alcohol inks, alcohol, and blender to get the colourful sky and water. We will let that dry while you are creating another landscape or abstract, your choice on a 6 X 6 inch ceramic tile. Once that is finished you go back to your landscape picture and put in the fine details that you want to complete your picture, such as; mountains, trees, boats. I supply all of the alcohol inks, Yupo paper, ceramic tiles, and other supplies that you can experiment with. Your projects will be sprayed with a sealer so they are ready to take home at the end of the workshop. You will need to bring an apron and your creativity. This class will accommodate beginners as well as seasoned alcohol ink painters.
Date:  Thursday, Nov. 2
Time:  6 - 9 pm
Cost:  $50
Please call us at 250 769 1257 to register.
Supply list to follow.
