Alcohol Ink Art Class

Learn how to do fluid art painting with alcohol inks on Yupo paper



3 hours Class size 1 to 10     label $130

Whether you are new to this art form or a well-seasoned creative who just wants some well-deserved ‘me’ time, come along and let me provide a safe landing space for you to unwind, have some fun, go with the flow and create your own, alcohol ink masterpieces.

In this wonderfully therapeutic workshop, you will be introduced to the concept of flow art and abstraction using bright and colourful alcohol inks, Yupo paper and alcohol ink accessories. Here, in a relaxed environment, you will be guided by an experienced art facilitator through a range of exciting, fun and easy flow techniques, choose and experiment with colour and neutral palettes that intuitively speak to you, learn how to embellish your work using symbols and marks that express your unique identity and create originals with a WOW factor that you will be proud to frame or use in other art or craft applications.

All materials will be provided and, at the end of the workshop, you will take home two small framed original pieces, one large unframed work and a folio of multiple art pieces ready for you to apply, (at your own leisure), to your ongoing creative practice at home.

Class sizes will be limited to 10 participants (min six students) and are suitable for teenagers and adults. No previous experience is necessary.

Products used contain denatured alcohol and 100 per cent Isopropyl. Anyone who has been or may be affected by these products should consider using a filtered mask. P2 Unisafe disposable masks will be available on the day. You may also bring your own masks if desired.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • Two framed, original alcohol ink on Yupo artworks of your own ( Frame 1- 8×8”/ Mount 1- 6×6” and Frame 2- 6×8”/Mount 2- 4×6”)
  •  One large unframed, original alcohol ink on Yupo artwork of your own.
  •  Multiple art pieces in various sizes and Yupo paperweights (100gsm, 200gsm). A small folio to store work.
  •  The ‘in class’ use of a range of coloured alcohol inks/ pens and alcohol ink accessories to produce and complete artworks.

What to bring
  • An inquisitive and go with the flow mindset
  • A supermarket type bag to carry home your amazing framed pieces!

Marty Nuku has been a qualified art educator for the past 20 years in both the public and private sectors of education in NSW and QLD. Marty is currently based in Brisbane and has found that using alcohol inks as a ‘flow’ medium invites a more intuitive approach to artmaking than more traditional styles. Marty says, ‘Line, colour, balance and harmony are achieved through the serendipitous ( the art of happy accident) qualities of this exciting medium allowing me, as a creative and life-long learner, the freedom to explore the high points and subtleties of the mediums, to value the spills and drips, and the opportunity to rework my pieces if I choose, in a way that brings satisfaction and sense of achievement in creating something unique…nothing is wasted!’.

Through research, conversations with other talented creatives and ‘flow’ artists, and with the ongoing passion for sharing her knowledge, Marty brings to the workshop scene an experience that will ignite your own potential to create with ease, be inspired, and open your world to new and exciting possibilities.

What a fantastic course, the teacher was lovely and I came home with pictures good enough to hang up in my house. Loved it and will be back for sure.

Kate Sunners Jul 2021


Really enjoyed this workshop. The space was great, the teacher was very clear, and working with alcohol inks was very fun! The only thing I'd change would be to space out the teaching to teach one technique, try it, then teach another technique and provide time to try, rather than teaching them all together for the first hour. I think this would provide more time to test and play with different techniques.

Louise Simmons Jul 2021


Thoroughly enjoyed the 3 hour class. Everything provided - inks, masks, apron, take-home instructions, paper in folder and even 2 frames to display the finished pieces. Marty clearly explained and demonstrated the various techniques and answered our questions. The venue was easy to find and street parking outside.
Highly recommend.

Had a wonderful time today, created some really beautiful pieces of art that I am so proud of! I've framed two if my artworks with the frames received and have one in our bedroom and our eldest daughter wanted the other with one of my new creations for her to look at

Funky creative venue.that was perfect to get the creative juices flowing.

Marty was an inspiring teacher who was full of lots of knowledge and encouragement.

I was so excited to do this class and it didn’t disappoint. Marty was a great teacher, generous with her knowledge and compliments. She patiently answered all my questions. We had plenty of time and materials and took home a handful of colourful creations. It’s so much fun and a soothing hobby you can get lost in as you watch the i ks do their thing. Great class.

Anonymized Customer Feb 2021


Enjoyable class. Teacher was great. She was interesting, patient, and clearly very knowledgeable.
The class had a good mix of teaching and hands on learning.

Caroline Feb 2021


Such a great class. You could tell that Marty was so passionate about what she did. She gave great suggestions whilst still making sure that she didn't get in the way of your creativity.

I had a lovely morning learning the art of alcohol ink. Marty was a great teacher. She was thorough with her instructions and we had all the supplies needed to try and recreate her beautiful art work. There was plenty of time to do several pieces and we received little frames to display our work at home. Thoroughly enjoyed the class

I really enjoyed my alcohol ink class with Marty yesterday. She was a really good teacher and very talented. I got so much value out of her class which was very well equipped with every thing we needed. The venue was really was pretty good and very easy to find, nice coffee shop out the front. I liked the fact it wasn’t too big a class also. I would highly recommend this class to anyone. It was fun and the morning went way too fast.

Tracey Barry Oct 2020


The best glass I have ever taken. I have no art skills but absolutely loved this glass and my take home 'art pieces'.
Marty was so informative, relaxed and easy to talk to.
I learnt so much, I went as it was something different to do, but now I have a new hobby, and I'm over the moon about that.
Thanks
Tracey.

Would of preferred 1 large frame for our final art rather than the 2 small ones that I prob won’t use.
Cheers

Sally Klaassen Sep 2020


Teacher was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Venue was great(I fear maybe very hot mid summer).All materials supplied , instructions were easily followed but still allowed your own style to shine through. An enjoyable workshoprelaxing hobby to be continued at home.

Christie Hickey Jul 2020


Marty is lovely and the setup is great. It's a wonderful feeling coming away with a few artworks you've created yourself, and getting a folio with a few spare sheets gets the creative spirit thinking!

Marty was an amazing teacher she explained heaps of techniques and allowed for experimentation.
I loved the medium I could have spent the rest of the day playing with the inks. Marty also told us how to get more out of our pieces and what other things we could use them one.
looking forward to doing another class very soon!

Trina Jan 2020


I absolutely loved the Alcohol ink and yuppo paper class. Our teacher Marty was amazing and gave us so many ideas. It was a great way to spend the morning and worth every dollar!

I really enjoyed my Alcohol inks class today. Marty was extremely inspiring and made me feel relaxed immediately as a complete beginner. I’m by no means an artist and the relaxed atmosphere was welcomed! Everything I needed was provided and there were many opportunities to explore different techniques. It was a very humid day but I found the studio comfortable with the large fans. I’ll definitely be back to do other courses, but for now, I have some playing to do with my new skills

Karin Rogers Jan 2020


Great value for money and Marty was very knowledgeable and gave great demonstrations. I really enjoyed this workshop.
The venue is extremely hot with no air con, the fans just circulate hot air and the chairs are very uncomfortable.

Ann Valentine Jan 2020


Charming teacher and the young coordinator. A completely new art form for me and I learnt heaps. Very worthwhile Thank you.
