Playing in Paint I: Acrylic Flip, Pour, & Drag Workshop

Acrylic Pouring and Fluid Art is all the rage on YouTube these days and Shannon’s decided it’d be fun to share the techniques here at the library in a series of monthly art-related workshops starting with Playing in Paint I: Acrylic Flip, Pour, & Drag. These are the basic techniques you’ll learn before being able to do lots of fun things on your own. For $15 you’ll get two canvases, the paints, simple tools you can also find at home which are needed to do two paintings. You must RSVP by 2/7 for this first class and put $5 (nonrefundable) down for your ticket as seating is limited. Come and spend a couple hours playing in paint and experimenting with this low-impact and easily artistically achievable form of painting.

It’s $2 for the movie, popcorn, juice, and fruit-infused water, and you must RSVP by 2/7, fill out some simple emergency contact paperwork before you go skipping away, and you must be back at 8pm to pick up your children, but you’ll have some nice quiet time as a result.
