Abstract Acrylic Art :: Flip Cup 101

Length:  2 hours 
Minimum Enrollment: 5
Malene Davis


We all love that abstract art that looks so crazy it's almost perfect: A blend of swirls, spots and dots that are so in the right place that you often wonder how much time the artist spent getting that piece "just so." 

Sometimes (here's the "da ta da-da!"), the art that you're seeing is someone's perfected hand at a type of acrylic art called a "flip cup" or "dirty pour" process.  Yes, it's dirty, and it's imprecise, and it takes several steps, and we promise that you're going to love every single minute of it.  Acrylic pouring will become your new favorite past time.  

All supplies, including paint, canvas, and paint additives are included in the price.  All participants will leave with their piece wet to dry at home, and will be given a shellac to give the finished painting depth and intense shine once fully cured. 

We highly recommend that you allow your paintings to "set" before carrying them home, so be prepared to return to the store 7-8 hours later in the day (if an early morning workshop) or the next day so the fluid paint does not shift in transit.

Every participant will go home with two paintings by the of the workshop. 

Each class is a 2-hour session.

Sunday, October 6th - 10:00am - Noon
Sunday, October 27th - 5:00pm - 7:00pm
