About this event

Description

This activity has been cancelled.

Explore flowing vivid colors as you play with alcohol inks and create something beautiful. Students will be guided through demos and given lots of individual attention. Tips on how to work with the inks on a tile or non-porous surface to direct the design will be shared. An overview of the materials and how to prepare the surface will also be provided. Candace’s teaching style is engaging and educational. This workshop is open to all levels but is geared toward beginning and intermediate painters. Supply list will be emailed prior to class or you may download the list below. An additional $3 supply fee is payable to Candace French on the first day of class.

If health orders do not allow for in-person classes, Candace French will hold class virtually. If class is held virtually, students will be provided a full supply list to acquire on their own.
