Go with the Flow

Saturday, January 12, 9am-12pm

Instructor: Isabel Kumerz

Art Alliance Art Center

818 Pike Street, Lemont, PA 16851

Go with the Flow is a form of abstract art that uses acrylic paints with a running (fluid) consistency. The acrylic paints react with each other when combined together to make interesting and visually organic patterns. Fluid acrylics can be used in many different ways such as pouring, dripping, swirling, glazing, dipping and many other effects. Fluid art opens up a lot of possibilities and is definitely worth exploring and adding to your artist tool belt. In this course I will teach you everything you need to know to become a paint pouring artist. This type of art is fun for students of all levels.

Fee: $45

Instructor: Ingrid Booz Morejohn

Art Alliance Art Center

818 Pike Street, Lemont, PA 16851

Learn all the techniques of traditional drypoint engraving but use instead a cheap and easily accessible material – simple recycled milk and juice Tetrapak containers. With these you can feel free to experiment and make ‘mistakes’ without feeling you have wasted expensive materials like a copper or zinc plate. The idiosyncrasies of the material (folds, creases etc.) only lend character to the final prints. You will also learn some aspects of relief printing as well as collagraph printing where layers are peeled away and inked. Each student will print a limited series of relief and intaglio inked prints.
