Make it Bold: Pour & Paint with Acrylic!

This art class is hosted at Sturgis Center for the Arts, but registration is through Community Education of the Black Hills. Here is the link to register online with CEBH!

Class ID :802013

Come add flowing color to your life while experiencing the addictive pour and paint with acrylics! Pouring, puddling, dripping... the techniques of this acrylic style are that you don't apply the paint with a brush or palette knife, instead gravity is a main tool to move and form vibrant, swirling colors across the canvas. The results are unlike anything you do with a brush: beautiful fluid flows of paint without marks. It’s amazingly fun and almost therapeutic as you expand your skills and creativity by embracing another mode of painting that’s free-range J. All supplies are provided and you should be able to complete more than one canvas if you wish. Students 18 yrs old and above most welcome. NOTE: Additional $20 supply fee paid to instructor at class.
