Pour Painting - Acrylic Art

The Maker Station

(Please note - This event is for adults only - No children please. Moms and Dads you are welcome to come get messy, but let's leave the kids with the sitter for this one :). ) Pour Painting is a rather fun art form that I've recently found and will be sharing what I know with you. I will also be bringing supplies so you can try your hand at this without breaking the bank. Topics to be covered: What is Pour Painting Terminology (dirty cup, clean cup, puddle painting, swiping, etc) Tools Needed (there's not many - but you can get crazy too) How to mix your paint (what kind of paint to use - what kind of medium to use - silicone yes or no?) Techniques (flipping, pouring, swiping, blowing, tube painting, tree ring painting, etc) Then we'll get hands on :). Mixing a color Building your cup Making your painting :-D. We will be working on 16 x 20 canvases. If you want to take your painting home right after the class it WILL need to be transferred level or else your painting will ooze off the side. Alternatively, you can leave your painting at the space and pick them up at a later time* (we will have to coordinate dates and times for this). What should you bring with you? Nothing - everything will be provided... Just come in clothes that it's okay to get paint on. If you're anything like me I wear just about as much as my canvas does. We're not standing on ceremony or dressing to impress - come ready to get messy :D. This event is open to the public and where there isn't a "fee" there is a request for donations if you can afford it. The Maker Station has bills to pay and the materials I'm providing did cost me (edit note - I am trying to get a paint company to send us some paints to use... if that happens then YAY!). All donations are split equally between myself and The Maker Station. *any paintings left at The Maker Space for longer than 1 week will be considered a donation to the space. The Maker Space is an active shop - the longer it stays at the space the more chance there is of something happening to it (dust, being moved, something set on it, etc). ----------------- About The Maker Station Inc The Maker Station Inc is home to a vibrant community of makers from the greater metro Atlanta region serving the interstate corridor northwest of Atlanta, GA, including Smyrna, Vinings, Marietta, Kennesaw, Acworth, Woodstock and surrounding areas.
