Next Fluid Painting Workshop with Ana Paz: Saturday, August 18th 1PM
Hope to paint with you then! 🙂
My story started some time ago in Romania, where I was born in a family of 3 different cultures: Greek, German and Ukrainian. Soon after I had finished my engineering education, I left Romania and I lived in different countries as a global nomad. At some point in my life I had a regular office job and eventually a bore out. I saved myself quitting it and retreating into Hindu and Buddhist philosophy. A 2 year stay in an Ashram followed. This altered not just my worldviews and my beliefs but also influenced the way I express myself in art. I paint with my hands but my feelings, emotions and my intuition are in charge; the hand is just a tool. I never know how a paining is going to look like in the end. It is always a surprise to me. All I am doing is to stay as much as possible in a meditative, no-thought, neutral state of mind and let the intuition do the work, pick the right color, move the canvas, stroke the brush in the right direction.

We are thrilled to announce a special workshop with Ana Paz (www.anapazartist.com)!! Ana is an unique artist from Romania, based in Aeschi, Spiez. While having a background in engineering, Ana studied Spanish Philology, travelled around the world and spent 2 years in an Ashram. Somewhere along the way, she fell in love with art and pursued this passion ever since. On this Saturday afternoon, she will take the expression „colourful playground“ to another level. Treat yourself with a relaxing afternoon and experience (shiny) acrylic paint in a way you will never forget!
What is Fluid Painting?
Also known as paint pouring, flow art, liquid art.etc.
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.
In this course I will teach you:
• What Is Pouring Medium ?
• Color Mixing Recipes
• Paint Consistency
• Choosing the right colors
• Different techniques that I use like: dirty pour, flip cup, puddle pours, swipe technique and more.
• Using a heat gun and why?
• Tips On Drying
What’s special about this course 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 a “little” art all the time 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 will show you some techniques and tricks and encourage you to paint intuitively and freely.
