One of my favorite things about art is that you don’t necessarily have to be “good” at it to create something beautiful.
So when our studio got together for a “Maker Studio Friday” to create art using alcohol ink, I knew it would be a fun experience for all of us.
Using ceramic tiles, alcohol ink, straws, rubber gloves and a few bottles of rosé, the studio got to work. It was interesting to see the different approaches each person on our team took toward this project. Some methodically placed their coordinating colors of alcohol ink like conductors of an orchestra while others worked like witches over a cauldron concocting something beautifully evil.
Like strokes of paint on a canvas, no two drops of alcohol ink are the same. Art is messy, free, personable and if you do it right, fun.
This summer at ThoughtMatter, we’re ending every week with a “Maker Studio Friday” activity. During each session, a different studio member leads us through a hands-on activity that results in each of us having made something with our hands and minds. The activities help us keep our minds open, and pushes us to create better and more innovative work for our clients.
