    In-Person Course

    Paint Pouring Workshop

    The course will suit all levels, it is fun and informal and doesn’t require any knowledge about paint or artistic techniques.
    What is paint pouring?
    Acrylic pouring is a painting technique where acrylic paint is mixed with a pouring medium and then poured onto a surface in a variety of ways. The surface is tilted in each direction to let the paint flow and the way the colours interact is unpredictable, yet always interesting.
    What will I learn?
    You will be learning how to prepare the perfect mix for all your paint pouring projects.
