Please read description below!

All materials included to complete 3 Fluid Art Paintings per Artist*! Professional Framing of one painting Included. 

(Two (2) 8" x 8" Fluid Art Paintings & One (1) FRAMED 12" x 12" Fluid Art Painting .

Beginner's 2 Day Fluid Art Workshop coming in August! (The Second Day of this Workshop will be scheduled during Day 1's Class according to your convenience)

Just bring yourself. No experience required.

We can all use a moment or two to relax, unwind and forget about our daily stresses, and that's why I've created this Beginner's Fluid Art workshop. 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".

This Private 1-on-1 TWO DAY workshop is a fun and introductory lesson on everything you need to create and take home Three (3) of your very own one-of-a-kind colorful abstract masterpieces. (Trust me, it's hard to do just one and walk away.) 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 piece with Matt Varnish or High Gloss Epoxy topcoat once it's cured/dry.  You will choose your desired color palettes and you will control the movement of the fluid paints to create 3 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 (13 yrs old and up) for their own discounted rate ($99), and create your custom fluid paint colors together, share this addicting form of art and get lost in the abstract designs together for a total of SIX(6) Paintings and Two Frames.

**I do offer a Kid's Only Workshop for young artists aged 8-12 if you want to create Fluid Art Paintings together with your little one(s). For the Kid's Only Workshop click HERE.

 

DAY 1: (2 hours)

After a quick demonstration, you will take over (I will be right there to guide you along) and practice/experiment with these popular Fluid Art Techniques: The "Balloon Smash", "Flip & Drag", Dirty Pour and "The Swipe" on Practice 8" x 8"  Flat Canvas Boards.

Once you're feeling confident blending and layering the paints and colors,  you will then move to creating your 3 Official Fluid Art Paintings on Two (2) 8" x 8" Cradled Wood Panels and One (1) 12" x 12" Traditional Wrapped Canvas with your chosen technique(s). Each of your 3 Paintings can showcase your most favorite technique, or all separate techniques or you can combine all techniques in each so let your creativity soar, this is what this class was made for!

After you've completed your 3 Fluid Paintings and are satisfied, we then let them dry for 48 Hours and then resume back in the studio at your convenience for DAY 2 of the Workshop to seal and finish your Fabulous paintings. 

DAY 2: (1.5 hours)  Scheduled at your convenience during the first class.

The Fluid Art paintings will now be dry and ready for the next step, which is brush painting the supporting sides of your 8" x 8" Paintings with Black Acrylic Paint (or in your chosen color) then finishing each with a Matte Varnish Top Coat, and most importantly signing them. Your 12" x 12" painting will be ready for it's epoxy topcoat which we will do last together. Here comes the blowtorch! This is literally the best step, albeit a delicate process, but fun to do. After the epoxy pour top coat, we then leave the studio for the day to let your painting cure uninterrupted.

Please Note: Your epoxy topcoat will have to cure in the studio for 48 hours. After it's fully cured, I will then frame your piece in a black floater frame complete with hanging gear which will then be ready for pickup at your convenience. 

(Your 8 x 8 finished Paintings will be ready to take home at the end of Day 2 class.)

---------------------------------------------------------- 

All materials included. Canned Non alcoholic refreshments, teas, bottled water, and sealed bags of chips and cookies will be provided for each day and/or you're welcome to bring your own!

I will provide practice boards, canvases, wood panels, paints, gloves, cups, aprons, paints & pouring medium, stir sticks, border tape, blow torch (yes, there's a blow torch!), etc. for each Artist to make 3 FINISHED Fluid Paintings to take home. You will also get a printed materials and prep list so you can create more fluid art pieces in the comfort of your home or studio after you've learned the basics with me!

So get ready for a totally relaxing art vibe with the goal of encouraging a creative and imaginative experience. Although aprons and gloves will be provided, please consider clothing you don't mind getting a little acrylic paint on. Even though it's completely washable, Fluid Art can be a bit messy ( and oh so liberating ) depending on technique, application and Artist.

A little about paint pouring: If you are not familiar with fluid painting or paint pouring, it is a technique used with acrylic paints combined with a flow medium that when mixed with other colors creates unique and really amazing abstract color pop effects. Depending on the colors you pick and the technique you use, you can get a wide variety of gorgeous layered effects within an incredible piece of abstract fluid art that will amaze you, your friends, and family. Plus it is a very relaxing, therapeutic and healing form of art that is great for everyone! 

I look forward to seeing you and creating together with you! Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me here before ordering.

**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. 

Studio Update: I have a hand washing sink and bathroom upstairs in the studio loft now! YAAAAAAAAAY!
