Registration is now open for a “Luminous Alcohol Ink Creations” workshop that will take place at Manzanita’s Hoffman Center for the Arts on Saturday and Sunday, July 20 and 21.
Led by Margaret-Rose de Haas van Dorsser, this 18-and-over workshop will cover both basic and advanced alcohol painting techniques. The first three hours will review the basics of using alcohol inks, with the remaining nine hours dedicated to new techniques, including applications for use on ceramic tile, Yupo paper and resin-based coasters.
During her childhood in Brussels, van Dorsser began drawing and painting with pencil and oil, enamored and influenced by the Impressionists. She has enjoyed instruction from a variety of teachers, but is mostly self-taught.
Since coming to the United States at the age of 17, she has added acrylics, colored pencil and pen, and most recently alcohol ink to her media repertoire. Her vibrant images are often lifelike.
The workshop will run from 10 am to 4 pm each day.
Tuition is $80, plus a $50 materials fee. Alcohol ink is messy and staining. Participants are advised to wear a painting smock or over-shirt and old clothes.
