Alcohol Inks with Barbara Bufford
May’s Artful Touch – Wednesday, June 21st
6:30-8:30pm at Studios on Walnut
    
With this process there’s no need to plan, draw, or even have any prior art experience!  This is a class where you will watch what happens with this exciting medium.  Alcohol inks, a dye-based, permanent ink activated by using 91% alcohol.  Bright color gives the illusion of stained glass.  You’ll be using Yupo paper, a nonporous, polystyrene-extruded paper.  Concentrating on color blending, creating texture, and sculpting with simple household tools, the outcome will be an abstract landscape.  Each student will have the opportunity to create several landscapes or abstracts designs.
 
Barbara Bufford has been painting and crafting for over 40 years, developing her art skills by attending numerous art classes, workshops and with lots of experimentation.  In 2015, Barbara's work was published in an art book called Intuitive Painting Workshop.
Barbara currently teaches an art journal circle at the Cancer Support Center in Rehoboth Beach. She is a firm believer that art heals and that everyone should have the opportunity to create.
 
In 2007, Barbara started an art program at the Salvation Army called Creative HeArts.  The art program is for adults with developmental disabilities.  Working very hard to help her artists become a part of the art community, the artists in Barbara’s program show their work in galleries both locally and in Philadelphia.   She and her students created a line of greeting cards that assists them in sustaining the art program. 
 
On April 6, 2017, the Creative HeArts program received a National Award from the Salvation Army for excellence in programming in social services.
