Acrylic Pouring Intermediate Workshop
Acrylic Pouring – Intermediate Workshop :
Saturday September 7th : 1.00 – 3.30
In this Acrylic Pouring – Intermediate Workshop, Dawn will work with you on your finished pieces from your introduction session or your continued work at home, introducing different finishing techniques and embellishments that will take your work to the next level.
In the workshop Dawn will demonstrate several different acrylic pouring techniques that create beautiful effects building upon your basic acrylic pouring skills. You can then choose which technique to use for your two canvases. Dawn will demonstrate how to swipe to create a crashing wave, swiping and air blowing to create a stunning flower garden, and how to create beautiful delicate feathers. She will aldo demonstrate a puddle pour and what to do with it. We will also discuss how to apply post pour embellishments on your own paintings from the introductory workshop.
Embellishment – In this part of the class we will discuss how to look at your poured composition and then add more into it using the pour as a background. Often, it’s best to have a few people look at your image to help you find that hidden inspiration, so bring along a pour that you’d like to work on and let’s see what we can help you discover within the patterns and cells.
Pouring Substrate – During this part of the workshop we will discuss what objects you can pour on, what special considerations you might need to make in relation to preparation and the pouring process. As a class we’ll help each student feel inspired and excited with ideas and concepts- at the end of this conversation even the Peeps will be at risk of being poured on.
Each participant will get to leave the workshop with two canvases and loads of ideas for future exploration at home.
