Introduction to Acrylic Pour Painting
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. No prior experience necessary.

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.”
