Thursday, August 25th | 6:00pm-8:00pm | Alcohol Ink Abstract Backgrounds and Patterns with LaCott Fine Art

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 illustrative patterns through line drawing and mark making. Students will be working on small practice exercises and then on a final finished piece.

The recommended age for this class is 14+.

This class will take place at Rochester Brainery, located at 176 Anderson Ave F109, Rochester, NY 14607.
