This "Quick Class" allows you to play in the paint and create FOUR GORGEOUS ABSTRACT PAINTINGS on ONE (1) 10" x 10" Wooden Cradled Panel and THREE (3) 8" x 8" Flat Canvas Panels and enjoy a little creative R&R in between your hectic schedule. Specifically created for those that just want to destress and enjoy getting lost in the process of Pour Painting in 2 Hours (time will fly!) and create some beautiful artwork to boot. So why not take some time-out for yourself and discover the most addicting, relaxing, and fascinatingly beautiful act of Acrylic Pouring or "Fluid Art" with me in my Studio Loft.

In this workshop you and I will cover prep, materials, various techniques, color use, proper mixing of mediums including how to finish and seal your pieces with Matt or Gloss Varnish. You will choose your desired color palettes and you will control the movement of the fluid paints to create your FOUR (4) truly one-of-a-kind Zen like art pieces ready to hang on your home or office wall. These will also make great personal art gifts for your favorite Abstract Art Lover.

**Bring a friend or family member for $10 off each, (up to 3 extra people for a max of 16 Paintings together) and pour and tilt your custom fluid paintings side by side, share this addicting form of art and get lost in the abstract designs you create. This class can NOT be Split as it's built for 1 Person per Sign Up.

DESCRIPTION:

2 Hour Class 

After a quick demonstration of various techniques and materials, you will take over (I will be right there to guide you along) and practice/experiment with popular Fluid Art Techniques on Three Premium 8" x 8" Flat Canvas Panels. Heck, you may even discover your own signature technique, the possibilities are literally endless. Once you're feeling confident blending and layering the paints and colors and you're comfortable with the process, you will then move to creating your last Fluid Art Painting on One (1) 10" x 10"x .75" Cradled Wood Panel with your favorite technique. After you've completed your 4 Fluid Paintings and are satisfied, we then let them all dry for 48 Hours. After they are dry, I will varnish them in studio and have your finished pieces ready for pick up anytime at your convenience. 

 (UPGRADE Optional)- If you'd like to upgrade your finish and learn how to Epoxy any of your Cradled Panels in this class, there will be a $10 add on for each painting you'd like to epoxy topcoat. No need to decide at checkout, you can choose during class. The Resin topcoat will be done on another day at your convenience as the paintings need to dry before adding the resin finish.

Things to consider when deciding whether to upgrade to Epoxy Resin Topcoat:

  • Varnish Pros: It's an easy application and dries within minutes. If using Matte Varnish, it provides a soft but vibrant finish. Gloss Varnish provides a little shine to your piece, for a more "wet look". Although you never want to hang any artwork in direct sunlight, a varnished painting can be hung without as much consideration as with a painting with Epoxy Resin. Varnish provides a protective durable finish that will last for years without worrying where it's safe to hang.
  • Varnish Cons: None for this project. It's all about visual preference. However, if you prefer the hard candy shell look and feel, you'll want to go with Epoxy.
  • Epoxy Pros: Provides a sleek clear hard protective shell to your painting and colors almost seem to pop off the canvas in a 3D manner. Very eye grabbing. Richer Colors and more saturated in appearance than with Varnish. Metallic Paints really sparkle. Fun process to apply to your paintings.
  • Epoxy Cons: Fun application, but takes more patience and time. Takes 24 hours to cure. Resin does not like UV Rays of any sort, so you can not hang your painting near, in direct Sunlight or UV Lighting as it will tend to yellow over the years if exposed to UV Rays of any sort.

I look forward to seeing you and creating together with you! Once you've checked out, you're automatically reserved for your Private Workshop.

Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me here before signing up. 

**Per Social Distancing Guidelines: I do request you wear a mask during this workshop. If you don't have one, I will provide you one at no cost. 

Complimentary Bagged Chips, Canned Sodas, Hot Tea & Bottled Water will be available.
