*I would like to announce my guest artist for 
"Art of a Gypsy Summer Solstice 2017"~ Denise Balcanoff!!
Denise will be offering 2 workshops on creating beautiful alcohol ink artwork!

Hi! My name is Denise Balcanoff! I was born and raised in New York City, and developed a passion for art at a very young age. I attended the H.S. of Art & Design in Manhattan, and continued to study art at Buffalo State College, while also earning my teaching degree. Soon after, I moved to Bloomfield, CT, raised a family, and had a 33 year teaching career.
 Now, I am enjoying my retirement! Yay! Drawing was always my 1st love until I discovered the playfulness of alcohol inks. I love their bright saturated colors and how they blossom when applied to yupo paper. Alcohol inks are a very forgiving medium and are easy to use to achieve beautiful results. I enjoy experimenting with them on different substrates and trying different techniques. When working with alcohol inks, I often feel a bit like a mad scientist, wondering what I'll create next!
 To me art is love and can help heal the soul, and therefore, I love sharing it with others. When I'm not drawing or painting for my own enjoyment, I still enjoy teaching, but instead of working with the little ones, I share my passion with adult and young adult students. Through painting or drawing, I teach them to relax and release the stresses of the day!
 You can see more of my art on my art page 
Love & Blessings,
 Denise <3

~Discovering the Playfulness of Alcohol Inks~ 
In this class you will reconnect with your inner child through exploring the playful and very forgiving medium, alcohol inks. These very beautiful and saturated inks will have you “oohing  and ahhing” with each drop of color you drip on your paper.
You will discover the interesting properties of the inks, how they blossom, and how to manipulate them to create amazing works of art!

~Fun with Compressed Air and Alcohol Inks~
Compressed air isn’t just for cleaning your keyboard, it’s a great tool to produce beautiful works of art!
In this class we will create blooms, landscapes, and abstracts using the power of air to move and manipulate alcohol inks on yupo paper! 
This exciting technique produces very interesting and unique effects and is so much fun!
Learn how to create dramatic skies, delicate translucent flower petals, and expressive abstracts. This is a class that you won’t forget!
