ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Come pour your heart out with paint!
Ditch your paintbrush, and let gravity do the work! Using subtle movements and acrylic paint, learn to create beautiful, unique pieces of artwork, while exploring a variety of paint pouring techniques to create vivid effects, including marbling, cell formations, and more. Participants will create one large individual piece, as well as the opportunity to make several smaller pieces.
