What you'll do

I will start out by giving you a demo of the alcohol inks on ceramic tiles in my West Houston studio. I will explain how to use the inks and will provide a step by step process. No experience necessary at all. This is a fun and relaxing painting process. You will go home with two amazing alcohol ink tiles and at least 1 painting on Yupo paper. The colors are vibrant and beautiful! We will practice using canned air to create flowers and other designs. I will show you how to create a landscape. You can also create whatever you like and I will guide you and give you tips. These tiles can be framed or put on small easels. I will give you resources on where to order frames and I will also provide you with an email after the class including all the steps we discussed so you can paint alcohol inks on your own!

Please be sure and wear your face mask for this experience.

Classes are $55 each (1-4), however groups of 5 are $45 per person. Let me know if you would like to have a group of 5.

I am one of the alcohol ink pioneers in teaching here in Houston!

I have been painting for over 20 years and want to share my passion with you! I learned alcohol ink painting in 2014 and have been inking ever since! I know many techniques and I can't wait to teach you!

There is something about using these inks that is relaxing and rewarding. I started giving lessons that year and I love to teach others how to use this beautiful medium which is so vibrant and colorful. I am very patient with all of my students and will provide one on one assistance. I give lessons at Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower center in Austin every year and also do alcohol ink paint parties at client's homes. We always have a lot of fun and laughs and everyone goes home with a new skill and their own works of art. I am also an acrylic art painter. I painted many murals in Houston and also give lessons in acrylics if requested

Where you'll be

The workshop will take place in my small studio in a residential area of West Houston Texas. I can teach three people at a time and all of the supplies are included. You will see all of my artwork and learn all of the techniques for alcohol ink painting.

If you want to have a party of 4 or more, let me know. It is a small studio, however we can fit 4 -5 and have fun!

You can park in front of the house.

This was a great time. My wife is the artist not me so I was a little skeptical about accompanying her on this experience. I made some great pieces, guess there is a little artist in us all. Andrea is great at teaching the techniques and encouraging you, I highly recommend this experience.

I love experimenting with and trying a variety of art and mediums and this was a first for me. Andrea was an amazing teacher who demonstrated, explained and guided us through the process. I was pleasantly surprised with how well our pieces turned out even though this was our first time trying this technique! I cannot wait to do this again!

Taking a class with Andrea is such a treat. I paid for my three friends to join me as a Christmas present to them. We had SO much fun. Andrea is very helpful and encouraging. She had just as much fun as we did I think! Our experience was full of laughter and fun. She is very knowledgeable, personable, and passionate about alcohol ink painting!

This was a great learning experience! Her talent and teaching skills were shared with such enthusiasm and passion. You walk away feeling you have truly learned a new talent. You will find there is much more to this type of painting than you can imagine. And the small studio is wonderful and great to be one on one with the teacher. So much fun!

My brother and I went to Houston for the weekend for some catching up/bonding, since we both lead separate, busy lives--and you know how difficult it can be to get schedules to line up! Upon meeting Andrea and her family (especially Hank, the golden retriever!), we were contented, at-ease, and at home. Our lovely host kindly offered us a beverage, which was such a warming gesture! We were a little parched after driving from Kemah, TX and getting turned around along the way to the location (phone connectivity issues!). Andrea's studio was cozy and beautiful--so many inspiring alcohol ink tiles and artworks! It was plain to see that we were in the most capable hands! I loved that everything was prepared with thought and readiness. She is absolutely the best kind of teacher--instruction was easy to follow--and, she listened with attentiveness at what our visions were for our tiles. She was so helpful in suggestions and coaching. Andrea made you feel like you'd known her from the start, with her warm and happy demeanor! YA'LL. BOOK THIS NOW! Don't hesitate, because this class was the highlight of my trip. I want to come back and share this experience again! :)
