Art with Alcohol Inks ($3 fee)

Existentialism and the Arts
Ever think about your purpose in life? What your future will hold or could hold? Do you want meaning and meaningful work? What does that have to do with art?

In this session, dive into the texture, the colour, the shine and shadow of life as I see and interpret it. Not only will we chat about art and how I create and sell my work, but each participant will get to play with alcohol inks on yupo paper, and I’ll see if I can blow your mind with new ways to think about your time here on this crazy planet.

About Me: A true mixed media abstract artist, for the past three years I have been exploring and experimenting with various media, materials, textures and colours, including newer materials such as art resin and alcohol inks. My work is gestural, emotive and expressive and from layer to layer (sometimes as many as 25+ layers deep) can change the piece in unexpected ways. I welcome and seek out change and exploration in my life, having in the past been an independent filmmaker, a magazine editor, a Government of Canada ‘change agent’ and now painter. Visit PaminOttawa.com to learn more about Pamela and her art adventures.
