Join us for an interactive demo of Alcohol Inks Jan. 14 in DeSoto


The DeSoto Art League meets on the 2nd Saturday of each month beginning at 2:00 PM and ending at 4 PM at the DeSoto Presbyterian Church at 212 W. Pleasant Run Rd. in DeSoto. Light refreshments provided.

On January 14th, 2017 the Art League will present painting with Alcohol Inks. There are several techniques that will be presented by Julie Danford and Jean Wiley. The inks are quite vivid and are unusual in that they can be applied to non-porous surfaces. This interactive demonstration will have you try the methods on photographic paper and ceramic tile. You will also learn how to make the inks yourself so you can add this technique to your artist’s palette. Consider yourself invited—as a member, or as a guest!
