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. All supplies are included! Wear old clothes, it’s a messy medium. Paintings take 36 hours to dry, so you’ll need to come back to the Arts Center to pick up your painting later in the week.

Alcohol Ink Painting (Adults)

Experiment with alcohol inks on Yupo paper. The non-absorbent nature of Yupo means it will not buckle, no matter how much water you put on it and it makes colors more vibrant and brilliant than on standard papers as all the color sits on the surface. Alcohol inks are pigment-intense and vibrant, free-flowing and filled with an energy all their own. You will leave the workshop with knowledge of a new technique that you can take home and expand your artistic interest.
