Acrylic Pouring Basics – Private Lesson


SKU: N/A Category:


Have you ever wondered if you’d enjoy painting? Are you going through a tough time and think making art could be a way of healing yourself (as I did)? Or maybe you just want to try paint pouring because it looks like so much fun! I now offer private lessons one on one to teach you all of these things! See whichever option suits you, and click to book it.

  • Duration: 2 hours
  • Cost: $75 bring your own materials (see the list below) OR $100 with materials included
  • What you’ll make: You’ll create and take home (when it dries) one 8″x10″ piece and one 12″x16″ piece of fluid art. If we have extra time, you’ll create an additional 8″x10″ piece of fluid art.
  • What you’ll learn: You’ll learn about color theory to help you choose the best color palettes for home decor, how to mix colors & paints, what the different additives do, curing & sealing your artwork so it lasts, and how to do all of this while minimizing your waste. You’ll also learn two of these different pouring techniques: Flip Cup, Tree Ring, Puddle pour, Swipe, Funnel, Dirty Cup.
  • Pre-requisites: None. If you’ve already taken this class before, I will skip over the repeated materials, and focus instead on teaching you more techniques and practicing more.
