Workshop Description:

Students will be given a successful formula to prepare acrylic paint for use in acrylic pours.  Examples will be shown and the uncontrolled aspects of the pours will be discussed. Two pour techniques -- swipe and swirl --  will be demonstrated at the beginning of the workshop. Then students will explore and create three of their own acrylic pours (one 8” x 8”, one 5”x 4” and one 4” x 4”) to take home and marvel over!  It is quite addictive and fun, some even find it relaxing.

$49 for 2 hour session. All materials provided.
