This class is designed to help you discover the vibrant, exciting medium of Alcohol Inks. A fluid and beautiful ink that makes magical blends and gorgeous art. You will learn about how to mix and move the inks. We will work on photo paper, Yupo® paper, and mineral paper. Each session will be designed to explore different techniques to make simple flowing abstracts, gorgeous floral and landscapes.

Julie Tibus:  As a trained fine artist, graduating with a BFA from College for Creative Studies, Julie has a passion for exploration, an insatiable curiosity to learn and a desire to push boundaries. She draws from an intersection of natural beauty and bold expression. Her bodies of work include alcohol inks, watercolor, acrylic mono-prints and collage. Her contemporary art explores both abstract and representational themes in the natural landscape.
