Liquitex Inks with Jimmy Leslie

October 18, 2021


When: Oct 18, 2021 @ 11am (1.5hr demo)


Join Jimmy Leslie, Resident Artist and Director of the Liquitex Fine Art Collective Education program for some Inktober fun when he shares tons of information about the 20 NEW Liquitex Acrylic Ink colors!  Jimmy will show you the different ways that you can incorporate pen and brush & ink techniques into your own work.  Jimmy will also discuss how you can alter Liquitex Acrylic Inks with mediums to create thicker paint applications that fit your painting needs.  This will be a great opportunity to pick Jimmy’s brain on all things acrylic so come with questions in mind.
