"Paint Pouring"
April 6, 2024
 

Enjoy a fun step-by-step lesson in a loose, unpredictable and satisfying medium. Acrylic paint pouring involves a bit of chemistry, as ratios and fluidity have a direct impact on the end result. Heavier paints sink as lighter ones come to the surface creating beautiful cells. It’s also an exciting and fun technique because you don’t know what the finished product will look like! Sandy West carries a BFA in Commercial Art and is a long-time resident of the Florida Keys. She has been sharing her love of art with others as an instructor at several venues in Key West, and as an artist through her own works depicting the tropical surroundings.

Regardless of skill level, there’s something for everyone to learn. Dianne Hebbert is a Nicaraguan-American artist based in New York. She works primarily in painting, printmaking and installation art.
