Acrylic Pouring Introduction - Sydney Course

We offer training in face to face and/or online learning formats.

  • Please see scheduled class for delivery format.
  • Online classes delivered via livestream video over Zoom.

Join us for this fun filled hands on workshop. Learn how to create your very own fluid acrylic pouring masterpieces. This art form is very popular and the class will provide you with everything you need to know about acrylic pouring so that you can create your own pieces.

The technique of acrylic pouring is very unique and as a result it will leave you with one of a kind results. No two artworks will ever be the same.

In this class, you will learn how to combine acrylic paint and be able to watch the cells on your masterpiece come to life. You will explore the fun and very addictive techniques of 'dirty pours', 'flip cups' and 'puddle pours'.

By the end of this class, you will have created 3 eye-catching artwork pieces (8”x 10”) to take home to decorate your walls or to give away as a unique gifts for friends.

This is a class suitable for beginners - no experience is required. You don’t need to be able to draw or paint in order to learn how to pour. No paint brush or paint pallet is required either. However, this is a messy art form so make sure you wear clothes that you are happy to get a splash of paint on.
