Pour. Smile. Repeat: Acrylic Paint Pouring—Swipe Technique

Acrylic paint pouring is an exciting method for making unique, abstract art. In this class, we’ll start by learning about pouring mediums and how to mix paints to get consistent results. There will be a couple demonstrations, then you’ll get to create a unique painting of your own on a 9x12” canvas. In this session, we’ll learn the swipe technique to make cells in your paintings.
