Sip & Pour

$57

with Clare Spaulding

Calendar Apr 21, 2021 at 10 am

A workshop featuring our two favorite liquids - coffee and liquid acrylic paint!

Our neighbor Coffee By Steph will provide a unique flight of 3 pre selected piccolo lattes to keep you energized and inspired during your acrylic pouring adventure with AAV artist Clare Spaulding.

Acrylic pouring is a fascinating, abstract art technique where liquified paint is poured into each other onto the canvas to create different effects. Techniques being taught in this class include a dirty pour, a swipe, a flower and a string pull.

Paintings will be stored in Artisan Village to dry - participants can pick up after 2-3 days.

Acrylic pour can get messy - please consider wearing older clothes or an apron!
