Paint Pour with Ellen Kanner (Outdoors)

Acrylic Paint Pour
with Award-Winning Artist Ellen Kanner
Outdoors • April 10, 10am – 12:30pm $75M/$80NM

Fee includes $15 materials

The process of paint pouring entails using acrylic paint, resin, several oil mediums and (a little) propane gas which creates the beautiful and unique cells. The surface is tilted in different directions to let the paint flow and the colors interact in unpredictable, yet always interesting ways

Ellen will start by discussing different techniques of paint pour and showing some examples. She’ll explain the science behind the paint pour method and show some creative techniques people are using.

Students will then create a lovely paint pour which takes approximately 1 hour 15 minutes.

You will need to leave your paintings at The Art guild to dry on a flat surface for about 4 days (or they’ll continue to “pour”).

Please bring plastic non-latex gloves. We’ll have all the other materials for you!

This workshop will be held outdoors.
