Upcoming Workshops

Go With The Flow Acrylic Paint Pouring -- Workshop

with Isabel Kumerz

Friday Aug 24, 9–12pm
OR Saturday Aug 25, 9–12pm -- a second workshop

Acrylic paint pouring is a form of abstract art that uses acrylic paints with a runny (fluid) consistency. The acrylic paints react with each other when combined together to make interesting and visually organic patterns. Fluid acrylics can be used on many different forms such as pouring, dripping, swirling, glazing, dipping and many other effects. Fluid art opens up a lot of possibilities and is definitely worth exploring and adding to your artist tool belt. In this course I will teach you everything you will need to become a paint pouring artist. This type of art is fun for students of all levels.

Fee: $35
