Experience the joy and spontaneity of Alcohol Inks


Dear Friends,

While I am no longer accepting new registrations for the old on-line alcohol ink courses, I have compiled my video demonstrations from the classes and the newsletter into 4 volumes which are now available. Each volume also contains the entire Beginning Inks course, so those new to alcohol ink painting will have access to the techniques used in the demonstrations. Please click here for more information about the video demonstration collections.

Current students – you still have access to your course materials on DigitalChalk. If you need help logging in, please contact me at karen@karenwalkerart.com. Most importantly, if you have signed up for the feedback option for your classes, I’d love to keep working with you as you are ready!

While the decision to take a break from on-line teaching has been difficult, I believe that it has encouraged a new group of talented on-line teachers such as Alexis Bonavitacola (abstract inks) and Sheryl Williams (representational inks). I love seeing all of the beautiful alcohol ink paintings our community is creating.

Many thanks and happy painting!

  1. Karen, I am totally inspired by your work!!! As a recent college grad in fine art, this is a medium I want to experiment with. Watching your video this morning has brought an audible “awe” and great sense of wonder to try painting with alcohol ink today. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!

  2. Hello Karen – wow, I’m pretty much lost for words. I’ve just discovered yupo paper and painting with AI’s……….I’ve just watched your video tut on the French water fountain and was blown away. I’ve used AI for quite a while on acetate, glossy cardstock etc but mostly backgrounds. Now I realise how much more you can do with them. I’ve joined the AIA FB group and my yupo paper has just arrived so I hope this leads to me being able to achieve some of my own paintings. Thank you so much for the inspiration.

    • Thank you Karen! The world of Alcohol Ink Painting is wide open! Enjoy and I look forward to seeing you on the AIA FB group board! If you ever have questions, please feel free to email me! (karen@karenwalkerart.com)

  3. I have yust subscribed to your newsletter. I am impressed by your artwork. Have just heard about Yupo and alcohol inks, the latter I was already familiar with. As a cardmaker this is something I really want to try! Thanks!
