Introduction To Liquid Watercolors And Alcohol Inks On *Yupo W/Barbara Bagan says
*Yupo is 100% recyclable, waterproof, tree-free synthetic “paper.” It is sold in pads or by the sheet. The pads usually come in 9 X 12 or 11 X 14 which can be cut into smaller pieces, 5x7, 4x6, 5x5, etc.

Working on Yupo with liquid watercolors and alcohol inks when applied to a non-porous surface is simple and quick, resulting in beautiful and colorful pieces of art in just a few minutes. The spontaneity of these media and the variety of techniques are unpredictable, fascinating, and very exciting.

Good news: Few mistakes cannot be rescued. With Yupo you can always just wipe it off and begin again.

Bad news: The process requires speed and patience, letting go but “sort of “ being in control. It can be meditative and stimulating, and/or frustrating and satisfying.

Warning: This can be highly addictive!

This class is limited to 6-10 students.

Cost: $50

“Making art has provided me with meaningful and purposeful ways to express myself and to help others express themselves in similar ways. I use art on a daily basis in a variety of forms in both my personal and my professional life. Making art is not entirely about the product but also the creative process, and most of all about trusting that process.”
