Introduction to Fluid Art with Live For Art
Learn to create stunning, beautiful, unique art through the amazing fluid art technique, where the paint is poured and no brushes are used.
Fluid Art - go with the flow, have fun, be creative!
This workshop introduces people to the wonder of fluid art, an art form accessible to all. Absolutely no experience needed. With the right guidance anyone can create stunning pieces of art. ‘I believe that everyone is creative, if we let go of learned self-criticism and limiting belief’s and express ourselves, amazing things can happen’. (Julie – founder Live for Art)
All instruction, support and materials are supplied. During the workshop you will create 2 small pieces of art (or one medium one) which you can collect after 3 days drying time (or arrange to have sent to you).
You will learn:
- How to prepare your canvas
- How to mix paints and paint mediums
- How to choose fluid art recipes and formulas to suit your specific art piece
- How to create lacing through the ‘swipe’ technique
- How to layer your paints for a ‘dirty pour’ or ‘layered cup pour’
- How to create beautiful cells in your art
Enjoy some 'paint play' to get the feel of the paint and how it reacts. Three (3) techniques demonstrated (flip cup, swipe and puddle pour) and participants choose two (2) techniques to try themselves in the workshop. If you are a return student, we will introduce you to a new technique.
All supplies provided including canvases, paint, pouring medium, cups, gloves, and tools.
Light refreshments (tea, coffee and biscuits) provided.
This is a great way to start your fluid art journey, or gain the guidance you need to take your art to the next level. After attending an introductory workshop, students are invited to attend ongoing workshops that explore new techniques each week.
All paint is non toxic. Remember to wear old clothes as it can be a messy business, and whilst the paint and mediums will wash out if you get to it quickly, that is not always easy to do.
