Anyone can paint with alcohol inks! This medium will meet you half way, bringing its own ideas about what your painting might look like. This makes it an excellent way to create something eye-catching and original, even if you have no artistic experience. Alcohol inks will also present you with an opportunity to practice letting go and listening to your intuition. In this workshop, you will experience artmaking from a playful, exploratory place. I invite you to come ready to let go and connect with a deeply spiritual creative experience through this exciting, vibrant, and truly unique medium.

We will learn easy techniques that have dramatic results, creating several paintings on ceramic tiles. All materials will be provided. However, you can also bring other items to paint on if you wish. Anything non-porous works great, like glass, metal, plastic, and glazed ceramics -- perhaps clear glass baubles for your Christmas tree?

Please wear grubby clothes and bring a playful spirit.

Joanna Murphy grew up under the shadow of a gentle giant, Mt. Baker, in a small town in Washington State. Although Joanna had composed and created music her entire life, she began making art with the same devotion during a time of serious mental health challenges. She found that while painting she experienced a wonderful kind of calm, clarity and focus. Joanna believes it is the nature of all people to be creative, and she is grateful for art's healing presence in her life. It is a gift to be able to share her creations with others. Joanna lives in Santa Barbara, California.
