Paint Pouring


Students will learn how to mix, layer, and pour acrylic paint on canvas. Instructor will teach how to prep your canvas and demonstrate various techniques (up to five different ways) to pour paint. This class is intended for any level of audience, no prior knowledge on the subject is required! Paint pouring is a unique way to create flowing patterns without having to use a paint brush at all.


  1. Acrylic paint: brands like Artist Loft or Master’s Touch are good brands to go with and they can be found at either Hobby Lobby or Michaels.
