Class Description

 

An innovative journey using acrylic paints to form an art piece. Instead of using brushes or knives to create a piece of art, fluid-paints are used directly on the surface and the canvas tilted to move the paint around. In this class, you will be creating with your imagination and applying paint on 2-8×10 canvases. No prior experience necessary.

Table, chair, drop cloth for floor, and a tablecloth.

Paint option:
• Purchase 4-5 – 2oz bottles plus 1-8oz bottle of white from any store that carries them. (Walmart, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby etc.) I recommend getting gloss paint. It will move better on the canvas. Those paints will not be pure pigment. Red, yellow, and blue are good choices or colors you enjoy.

FAQ

What if I have done this process before? Can I use what I have?

Yes. Just so you know that this class is set-up for the beginner. You might not gain any new material.

How long will it take for my art piece to dry?

If you keep your art in an area that is room temperature too cool, has low humidity and does not get messed with, it should dry with no issues. It should dry in about 1 week depending on how thick the paint is.

What is a dirty pour?

Layers of paints poured/or drizzled on top of each other in the same cup creates a “dirty pour.”
