Introduction to Fluid Art
April 26 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$38
Have you ever wanted to create an abstract painting but weren’t sure how to start? If so, fluid art—also called [acrylic] pour painting, flow art, liquid art., etc.—might be just what you’re looking for!
Fluid art is a form of abstract art that uses acrylic paints with a runny (fluid) consistency. The paints react with each other when combined to make interesting and visually organic motifs. As the paints run amok and spill across your canvas, the possibilities are endless!
In this workshop, Deana Murchison will show you several different ways to do acrylic pours. Then, you’ll make two, 8” x 10” abstract paintings using the dirty pour/flip pour method. Finally, Deana will demonstrate how to finish your painting with an acrylic coating.
This is a fun and easy class and is great for experimenting with color!
