Acrylic paint pouring is a form of abstract painting using fluid acrylic paints. You don’t apply the paint with a brush but use gravity to move the paint by pouring, puddling and dripping onto your canvas. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to spark your creative energy!
Dress for a MESS! Acrylic paint does stain, so please dress accordingly. You will be bringing home a wet painting and will need to let it air dry for several days.
* Ages 8 - 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
June 5 Dirty Flip Cup - This technique is a staple one in acrylic pouring. We take different colors of acrylic paint and layer them in a cup, prep our canvas and flip! The result is a beautiful painting full of cells, patterns, and color.
June 19 Ocean Theme - Love the ocean? This class is for you. Using acrylic paint in white and different shades of blue, green, and teal, we will create a beautiful ocean themed painting. Love glitter? We have it if you want to add some sparkle to your painting!
July 10 Swipe - We will create a painting using different materials to swipe our paint over a straight color pattern pour.
July 24 - Strainer - This method is a class favorite. Pouring our paint through a sink strainer and then tilting with your strainer on the canvas makes a colorful, almost tie-dye effect!
August 7 Tree Ring Style - In this technique, we take our paint cup and pour the paint onto the canvas in the pattern of a tree ring, which yields some of the most interesting organic and round swirl pattern.
August 21 Flip & Drag - This technique is a variation on the Dirty Acrylic Pour. Instead of flipping and releasing the paint from the cup, we prep our canvas and puncture a hole in the top of our cup and reveal the magic of what dragging the cup leaves behind!
