Book a Fluid Art Painting class for yourself, your friends, staff, class, or your kids, and experience the joy and release from one of the most delightful ways of making beautiful art! You'll feel freshly inspired and discover the beauty of the creative process in results that are whimsical, colorful and simply addictive -- you'll keep wanting to do more and more pours! No previous art experience is required -- simply come with an open mind and get ready to be courageous and have fun connecting with others in the process ✨
I'll lead you step by step through the process of pouring a fluid art work of art, beginning with a brief discussion of how to make pouring paint, which mixing mediums to use, what tools to use, how to choose colors and layer them in your cup, followed by how to pour the paint using a choice of techniques in order to make the paint flow across your canvas in inspiring ways. Options for longer classes will be available to further your learning of how to add calligraphy or images on top the dried fluid art work, adding gold leaf to dried paintings, or how to finish and seal your final work of art, for example.
All materials will be supplied in class including canvases, pouring paint, cups, gloves, pans tools. Participants must come dressed in old clothes or wear an apron. Class content & demonstrations will be modified to make it suitable for the selected age group.
