$ 100  

Acrylic inks have the vibrancy of acrylic pigment and yet the loose and wild free-flowing style of watercolor. In this workshop students will be guided in how to harness the application and flow of acrylic inks in collaboration with regular acrylic paint to create a colorful hummingbird and a crow queen. Transfer paper will be provided with photo references so let go of those drawing anxieties. No drawing skills needed!
Acrylic inks will be provided. This is a great opportunity to test drive a new medium. Discover the vibrant versatility of acrylic ink while creating feathered friends through the creative process of layering. Learn how acrylic inks can be used to add colorful movement to your mixed-media projects.
