The Gretchen Show Art Class - Alcohol Ink on Tile

 —  —

Acoustic Kitchen Studio, 3198 Royal Lane Suite 104, Dallas, TX

Local multimedia artist Gretchen Goetz will guide attendees through the process of painting with alcohol ink. Here is how she describes the class on her website:

Painting with alcohol ink requires a certain amount of letting go and letting the ink and alcohol do what they want! But you can direct it with various techniques and tools and color combinations. In this class we will be working on ceramic tiles. They can be framed or displayed on small easels as works of art or used as coasters or trivets. We will also experiment with Sharpies and alcohol.

Each artist will have four 4”x4” tiles and two 6”x6” tiles to create upon. All materials supplied including self-adhesive cork backing and sealant.

Please bring a large cookie sheet or shallow box lid with you to take your creations home. The paint and sealant can take many hours to completely set so you'll need a safe way to transport them. Also be sure to wear clothing appropriate for a paint class or bring an apron or over-shirt - just in case!

Classes are prepaid so that I have accurate supplies on hand. Gloves will be provided!

RESERVATIONS MUST BE PURCHASED AT LEAST 24 HOURS PRIOR TO CLASS START TIME. This is to allow me enough time to make sure I have adequate materials for everyone. If you have missed the cutoff time and would still like to attend, please text me at 214.986.2459. Thank you!

The Naked Truth Storytelling Show

Acoustic Kitchen Studio, 3198 Royal Lane Suite 104, Dallas, TX

Calling all storytellers and story-songwriters! Come get naked with us on March 21!

Acoustic Kitchen has teamed up with Gretchen Goetz of The Gretchen Show to present a storytelling series called "The Naked Truth", which is also the theme for our first show on March 21.

Do you have a story or song about being naked, either figuratively or literally, that you'd like to share with a bunch of strangers? ;- ) Did your naked nightmare come true? Were you in the buff, in the pink, in your birthday suit? Did an experience leave you feeling exceptionally exposed or vulnerable? If so, we want to hear it! If you have a great story but aren't experienced at storytelling, don't let that stop you. We will help you edit as needed and at showtime you'll be surrounded by generous folks in an intimate, warm environment. This is a new adventure for us too!

A few parameters: Your story must be true and have happened to YOU. It must be spoken not read; you may bring a "cheat sheet" or crib notes on stage with you, but we want you to connect with the audience. Stories should be between 6 and 9 minutes long. Songs should have a brief introduction explaining the origin and anything else that will help the listener understand the meaning behind it.

If you are interested in knowing more, please contact us ASAP!
