    I decided to try this since I had not heard of it before. The class was an introduction to alcohol ink art, and it was very basic. I ended up researching this further at home. The instructor explained the basics, introduced us to the materials. We made two items to take home.

    The class was very abstract - my friend and I had fun, as it was a way to get our fill of art for the day. Note that there is not a specific picture to replicate, or detailed instruction. You could create whatever you wanted and was more about testing out the alcohol ink.

    This class was mislabeled on here, but listed correctly on the store calendar. The class was actually on creating art in the style of Kandinsky. Instruction was light, but Destiny, the teacher, was creating alongside us and available for whatever questions we had. There were plenty of materials and I was really impressed with the experience, especially for a free class. I will definitely be back for another free class at Blick.

    Dabble mixed up the dates at Blick. This week was the "Kandinsky Inspired Project with Jon David." The Diffusion Abstraction will be next Sunday, January 21. Destiny stepped in to teach the class. We had a full group. Working on canvas pieces or paper, we used acrylic paint and wood sticks to paint black abstract lines. Then, we added color to the negative spaces. It was a grand time and everyone seemed happy with the results. This was a great way to spend two hours on a Sunday afternoon. I will definitely go back for the Diffusion Abstraction class on the 21st.

    The staff member that facilitated this demo was very friendly and happy to offer assistance as needed. Compared to other Dabble classes that I have attended, this class was more self-directed which was really nice and casual. We had free reign with the project, using whatever colors and materials that we wanted to of what was provided. With the small group that attended, everyone was able to create a unique piece on their mini canvas! For the price (i.e. free with the mini canvas included), it was more than worth it! I look forward to attending Sunday afternoon demos at this Blick Art Materials location in the future.

    This was nice...It was supposed to be outside but unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate on the day and it was pouring! The instructor had never done plein air painting and didn't really instruct at all, she just passed the sheet with tips on it to us to read and then sat and painted with us...it would have been nice to have some tips and tricks to manipulating acrylic paint since I've really never painted before and I had NO idea what I was doing. My favorite part was the lovely women I met while painting - we had a blast. Overall the staff at Blick were super kind and I got to spin the wheel and get a free t-shirt but the painting event was lacking.

    Maybe I misread the description of this "class" but it was nothing more than a table set up at a painting supply store with preprinted canvas squares with either a Christmas ornament or a sweater to fill in with color. It was not a 1-3pm class but a table set up between 1-3 where shippers children could stop by and fill in the colors. I was disappointed and did not stay.
