Connect with your inner artist at Sunrise Galleries, this weekend!

All weekend long, Sunrise Galleries (114 E 2nd Street Muscatine) will be hosting Alcohol Ink Workshops, with Artist Paula Crandell. And you’re invited!

Come learn about alcohol Ink with Artist Paula Crandell! This relatively new medium is known for its vibrant colors and unpredictable mixing and movements on a slick surface.  From Sioux City, Paula is thrilled to bring alcohol ink to Eastern Iowa.  She says she is on a mission to bring legitimacy to this art form.

Paula will provide everything you need to explore and create excitingly beautiful art pieces.  Workshop classes will be held in the studio at Sunrise Galleries in Muscatine.

Create beautiful paintings of flower stems and bouquets using alcohol ink and archival pens. You’ll complete paintings on tiles and Yupo.
