Have you ever wanted to try your hand at Abstract Art that is fun and Colorful?

Alcohol Ink (AI) is a new painting technique that just screams ABSTRACT.  With so many different techniques, AI will soon become a favorite medium. To make these beautiful hydrangeas, you will be using a hairdryer to move the alcohol ink around the edges until the ink dries leaving beautiful hydrangeas with abstract petals. 

To add variation, you can add a background before you add the flowers, add leaves or melt the colors. Utilize various colors for your individual painting.   Remember this is the fun part – explore your creativity.

Your instructor will help guide you through each step.  You will make one 6” x 9” painting in your chosen colors.  Given time, you can create a 2nd painting.

Just come to have fun and enjoy yourself. Best part of using Alcohol Ink is if you don’t like a part of your picture, you can wipe it off with ISO alcohol.

You will learn the basics of alcohol ink including:

  • What is Alcohol Ink?
  • How can it be used?
