Fluid Painting Workshop with Ana Paz
December 10 @ 13:00 - 16:00CHF120 – CHF130
“Go with the flow” – FLUID PAINTING WORKSHOP
Also known as acrylic pouring, paint pouring, flow art, liquid art.etc
It is a form of abstract art that uses acrylic paints with a runny (fluid) consistency. The acrylic paints react with each other when combined together to make interesting and visually organic motifs. Fluid acrylics can be used on many types of substrates and in many different forms such as pouring, dripping, swirling, and many other effects. Fluid art opens up a lot of possibilities and is definitely worth exploring.
Free-flowing liquid paints and mediums are at the heart of the pouring process. Adjusting the viscosity and flow rate to work in tandem with how you want the paints to interact with each other is key.
In this course I will teach you :
- Supplies you need to start Fluid Painting
- Workplace / preparation
- Different Pouring Mediums (additives for good flow characteristics)
- Use of silicone – mixing technique and impact
- Paint Consistency
- Paint Transparency (opacity of the paints / effects)
- Choosing the right colors
- Different techniques (12 ) that I use like: dirty pour, flip cup, string, swipe technique and more. In this Workshop, Ana will show you 3 techniques: Flower Pour, Swirl Pour, Chain Pulling. Learn more about all the different techniques HERE.
- Tips On Drying
- Varnishing your artwork
What is special about this workshop is not just the fun of playing with high flow acrylic paint, it’s learning how to work with different mediums and weave more art into your life. My techniques and exercises are geared to helping people reclaim or expand their sense of experimentation, wonder, and fun. You’ll see how making art regularly will help keep your creative juices flowing.
This is not a typical “guided event”. There will be no step-by-step instructions for a particular painting. Instead, Ana Paz will show you some techniques and tricks and encourage you to paint intuitively and freely.
Good to know about this Workshop:
No prior Painting experience necessary
4 canvases (3x 20x20cm, 1x 25x30cm) and all other painting materials are provided and included in the ticket price. Additional canvases & paint are available at the studio (15-30CHF per canvas)
Important: For optimal drying process and avoiding any changes to your painting, we recommend that you leave your artwork in the studio at least overnight and pick it up at later. Alternatively we can also pack it and ship it to you for an additional 15 CHF per parcel (payable at the workshop in cash or TWINT). If you want to take your artwork home right away, that’s definitely also possible but „at your own risk“ (needs to be transported as horizontal as possible).
