Acrylic Pouring (Ages 8 to Adult) Register View Cart

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.

Acrylic Pouring Techniques
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.

Flip and Drag: This technique is a variation on the Dirty Flip Cup. 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.

Floral: Choose your own colors to create your own flower garden with acrylic paint pouring and straws.

Galaxy Theme: Using dark colors like metallics, black, purple and blues, use your imagination and acrylic pouring to create your own galaxy on canvas.

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!

Puddling: Layering puddles of paint creates bold and modern patterns.

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.

Swipe: Create a painting using different materials to swipe over paint over a straight color pattern pour- revealing amazing cell patterns.
