ACRYLIC FLOW FEATHERS

 

SEPTEMBER 22, 2021, 10 AM TO NOON

2021-CLASS-REGISTRATION-FORM-1 (6)

Instructor: Theresa Poalucci

Acrylic Flow Feather

Learn to paint a feather using an acrylic flow method and a funnel.
This is a great class for both beginners and artists who have not experimented with acrylic flow before.

The paint will do the work for you!
It is so fun, but it can be messy, so bring an apron or wear old clothes. Students can pick their own
paint color combinations.

We will be making a painting on a 15” x 30” professional gallery wrapped heavy-duty canvas.
This canvas will be ready to hang once it has dried, as it will not require additional framing. Due to the time it takes for acrylic flows to dry, students will have to return to the gallery to pick up their paintings 2 days after the class.

Cost: $75 for members, $85 for non-members. All supplies included. Class limited to six (6) students.
