Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a hands-on demonstration of alcohol inks!
Joan Martin Fee is described as a craft designer, television personality, author, magazine editor, Instructions editor, voiceover specialist and owner of creative me time. It’s amazing to know that Joan once had a full-time job in the aerospace industry.
One morning in 1990 she turned on the television and while flipping through the channels, came upon a nationally televised craft show, Aleene's Creative Living. She watched with great excitement and at the end noticed that it was taped only twenty minutes from home. Viewers were encouraged to submit their ideas to the "sharing segment" of the show. Joan did just that! She was totally shocked when the producer asked her to demonstrate how to make her "Dress up Dolly" using shrink wrap and feature her on the show! From that happenstance beginning, nearly 30 years ago, Joan's creative journey that includes working for the largest manufacturer's in the industry, brings us to today where she continues her passion of making people feel special through creativity.
During this demonstration, Joan will show you how to make beautiful designs with alcohol inks on ornaments, necklaces, magnets and more! Don’t miss this hands-on experience just in time for the holidays!

Art Center Morro Bay is proud to introduce Amelie Butkus, a young writer and illustrator from Morro Bay, California. Amelie has currently written and illustrated the young adult mystery novel “A Lamplighter in Larkeney” that is set to be released this winter on Kickstarter. She has illustrated for multiple books, podcasts, and comics and is an accomplished character designer and illustrative artist. Her work spans from traditional, retro-influenced situational pieces to digital cyberpunk. You can find her work and portfolio at booksofamelie.com and @ameliebutkus on Instagram.
During this demo, Amelie will begin with an introduction of herself and share how she works her way through a single rendered full-body character in pencil, talking about motion and fluidity in blocking shapes, and expressing emotion in both facial and body language. This art demonstration is free and open to the public.
Bring a #2 pencil, eraser and plain paper if you would like to draw along. This fast paced and fun demonstration is a precursor to her workshop, “Storytelling Through Character Design,” January 28 & 29, 1pm - 4pm. The workshop is designed for students and young adults, however, everyone is welcome. Space is limited.
