Explore alcohol ink and its application in painting to create a one-of-a-kind abstract painting. Students will drip, drop, and spread bold and vivid colored ink on the paper's surface in an organic and fluid painting style, focusing on creating organic shapes on the paper. In this class, students will experiment with ink application, blending, and color mixing to create lush backgrounds and will leave with a basic understanding of how to pursue the medium further. A colorful background will be used to influence student compositions and illustrative patterns through line drawing and mark making. Students will be working on small practice exercises and then on a final finished piece.Age:This class is appropriate for ages 14+.Location:This class will take place at Figgy Studio & Shop, located at 251 Park Ave, Rochester NY 14607.Accessibility:If you would like to request a sign language interpreter or will be attending class with an aide, please fill out our contact form.
