Creating abstract acrylic paintings by pouring paint onto a flat surface in various ways is one of the most enjoyable art creation techniques. It is a bit messy, but once you are set up, it is an incredibly fast way to create quite beautiful abstract images. As art techniques go, acrylic pouring is fairly new and and easy to learn. Also, pouring techniques are somewhat age and skill independent – they can be done by just about anyone, from novices to experienced professional artists. The workshop will consist of a discussion of materials and demonstrations of a couple basic techniques, followed by the chance for each participant to create a couple of small paintings to take with them. Pouring paint can be a bit messy, so old clothes are recommended.
