Time for some more painting classes. Come join the fun and learn how to get started pouring paint!
$35.00 tuition includes most supplies!!

Learn how to mix the paint, learn the basic techniques, and get hands on experience producing your own works of poured art. I will provide the paint and pouring medium, canvases, gloves, and other supplies. Please bring a few trays, pans, or box tops covered in tin foil to put your paintings in, (minimum size 10”x 12”) and a roll of paper towels. Wear old clothes – this is messy! Plan to do two test tiles and two 8×10 canvases. I will have acrylic paint in the primary colors of Red, Yellow, and Blue, with white, black, gold, silver, purple, aqua and other colors. You can bring your own acrylic paint if you want specific colors.
