Fluid Art: Acrylic Paint Pouring w/ Joyce Groemmer

  • Cape Cod Art Center 3480 Route 6A Barnstable, Ma. United States (map)

Interested in abstract painting, but don’t know where to start? Acrylic pouring is a fun way to loosen up and create beautiful paintings in a short period of time. Fluid art dates back to the 19th century but gained public recognition with American abstract expressionists such as Jackson Pollack. Today, fluid acrylic pouring artists use new mediums and a wide variety of techniques to achieve intriguing effects and textures. The process is a delicate balance of planning, surprise and manipulation.

In this workshop, Joyce will provide an overview of fluid painting mediums, recipes and paint mixing. She will show examples of paintings created using different pouring techniques, and then demonstrate three techniques. With Joyce’s guidance, students will try each of these on their own, completing at least three 8×10 paintings to take home
