In this workshop, Instructor Melinda would like to demonstrate to you just how to begin making Ink patterns on wood; to provide you with the wood to choose from that draws you in, which form you see there, and then basic patterns to use to give it life. From there you will find you know the way to make it as you go. We will have various pens and ink items for which to apply the fun! This is an introductory workshop and no previous experience is required. Join us for this fun, non-intimidating, relaxing, unique date night, mother/daughter hangout, or girls night!

Long ago I asked my Mother, "When did I begin to draw?" And she replied, "As soon as you could pick up chalk!" And so began my journey to doodle, chalk, paint, build; it is still an ever growing exploration of art.
Since then, I attended the University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh in a dual major of Drawing and Painting (Bachelor of Fine Arts.) Along the way I had my two children who helped open up a whole new world of inspiration for me. Year after year, I continue to expand and try new ways to make art, learn, or grow just how I create.
One of the styles I have studied and am evolving in, is ink designs. I like to use different structures and paints as well as ink and pens, to make my art. Natural items call to me; the wood grains, textures, look, feel; the smell! Seeing a pattern or knowing I see something in it urges me to make the forms and shapes that I do.
