Painting with Alcohol Inks, 1-Day Workshop, With Artist, Mary Wojciechowski (Adults 17+)
 
This 1-day workshop will be held on Sunday, April 29th from 10am-3pm.

BECOME A MEMBER AND SAVE ON TUITION! 

Alcohol Ink is a highly pigmented and quick-drying medium applied by pouring, brushing or stamping on a non-porous surface such as Yupo. The vibrant colors of this ink intermingle creating unique textural effects, often leading to unexpected results. Working with alcohol inks offers opportunities to approach painting more intuitively and expressively with a sense of creative playfulness.

Materials are included in tuition cost. Please plan to bring your own lunch & drink. Please list any food allergies or special concerns at the time of registration (be as specific as possible). The Attleboro Arts Museum is a NUT SAFE ZONE, for details please review our Museum School Handbook. Thank you.
