    What is acrylic paint pouring? It's a form of abstract painting using fluid acrylic paints. It's fun and easy! Learn how to dirty pour your canvas to create one-of-a-kind wall art. How does it work? We'll pour paints onto a canvas, then tip and tilt the canvas, using gravity to move the paint around. The colors swirl and form a super cool abstract painting! The fee includes two canvases and all supplies. We end up with a lot of paint on the canvases, so they'll need to dry overnight before you can take them home. Plan on picking up your paintings the day after class or set up a time for the following week.
