PAINT POURING PATTERNS

Saturday, Aug 20th,
1:00pm-4:00pm
Carol Klovekorn
Fee: $38

In this introduction to acrylic paint pouring, we will explore some of the many patterns that can be achieved with this versatile and freeing medium. Mixing and supplies used will be discussed for those that want to continue pouring on their own. Demonstrations using the same combinations of paint colors, but utilizing different techniques, can result in completely different outcomes. We will discuss: puddle, clean, dirty, flip cup, open cup, tree ring, string pull, dutch, swipes, smash, & wave pours, as well as pouring over objects. Each student will make 2 - 8”x8” or 8”x10” canvas paintings in their choice of techniques & colors. Paint pouring can be messy so wear old clothes &/or bring a smock. Also bring 2 sturdy boxes to accommodate your completed work, so you can take it home that day to dry! Age 14+
