Acrylic Art Pouring: Mess and Meditation


Paint pouring is easy, fun, and can be quite meditative. While the artist gets to choose the basic colors and techniques, the paint will ultimately have a say in the process. We have to surrender control and collaborate with the paint, which leads to letting go and a sense of freedom. Tara will teach basic techniques, some tricks, and how she lets go into the art to find joy. You will get to play and take home what you create. Paintings will take about 24 hours to dry. Wear something you don’t mind getting paint on!

Audience: Older Teens & Adults
