MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 18, 2016.

The October Demonstrator will be Maribeth Jagger, demonstrating Alcohol Ink. Meeting starts at 6:30.

Maribeth Jagger has painted most of her adult life having received her degree in art from Northwest Florida State University. She currently teaches alcohol ink classes at The McKinney Art Studio in McKinney, Texas and at the Artist Showplace in Dallas.

In addition to teaching, she gives workshops and demonstrations to various art clubs and organizations and has taught art to many youth groups. She headed the Art in a Suitcase school program for the Chrysler Art Museum in Virginia Beach, VA and at the Colorado Springs Art Museum.

Maribeth primarily works with alcohol inks as she feels they vibrate with a purity of color, fluidity and energy that’s hard to replicate with other mediums. "I love the vibrancy and spontaneity of alcohol inks.
