How do most student progress through the Levels?
Most students start with Level 1 to understand how and why the inks behave the way they do and begin to gain control. Then on to Level 2 to add brushes, pens, markers, and masking fluid. The culmination of Level 2 is to learn how to paint using light and shading to get a 3D appearance.
For many students Level 2 is the gateway to the advanced classes. You can go on to Level 3 Pets or Level 4 Water, Part 1 and 2, but for many students it is time to practice the skills they've just learned.
I have set up single paintings for you to practice. There are three teachers presenting their work in the single painting section. Access is also for one year.
What if I want to start at a higher Level?
Some students have experience with Alcohol Ink and are ready to start at a higher level. For those students their are short courses of the previous level with the most critical concepts bundled with the higher level. See the new Student Courses.
I love to teach and look forward to working with you in class. I hope you join us on this exciting adventure making alcohol ink your creative medium too.
