Description: 

Are you ready to pour, flip and swipe paint around to create beautiful art?

Well, come along and learn how much fun Acrylic Fluid Art can be.

During this workshop you will learn key techniques for Acrylic Fluid Art and leave with the skills to continue your creative journey at home.

Classes are kept to 4 persons per session – keeping us COVID safe.  I will be working alongside you; helping and guiding you were needed during this approximately 3 hour workshop. Once we’ve covered the basics of fluid art, e.g. pouring mediums, paint densities and viscosity, we will move on to creating TWO fluid art pieces using a dirty pour technique and the flip cup technique, respectively.

Choose your own colours or use a layering ‘cheat sheet’. All skill levels will enjoy this painting process; it is so much fun – no prior art experience required!

What’s included?

You will be provided with two canvasses (30x40cm), a wide range of beautiful acrylic paint colours and all of the equipment needed to create your own artwork.

Note Cards loaded with all the essential information:

- Basic materials shopping list – and where to get it!

- Pouring medium recipes

- Avoid muddy colours cheat sheet

- Project 1 – Dirty Pour technique guide card

- Project 2 – Flip Cup technique guide card

- Colour Combinations ideas and layering cheat sheet

- Fluid Art Tips & Hacks

I recommend you wear comfortable clothes and please bring your own apron or painting shirt.

The art work that you’ve created during the workshop will be yours to take home – however, this will NOT BE DIRECTLY after the class as your artwork will still be wet and cannot be transported.

Your finished canvasses require a drying period of min. 6 days and will need to be collected after this time from the venue.  Shipping can be arranged at an additional $25.00*
