Get messy with paint and create abstract artworks

Pick your colours, pour them on a canvas and watch the magic happen

Last updated: Tuesday, 14 June 2022

You don’t need to be the next Jackson Pollock to feel like an artist at these art classes. Get messy and creative with Acrylic Paint Pouring. Watch the paint swirl and mix over the canvas in a mesmerizing kaleidoscope of colours and patterns. It’s a fun, easy artistic technique and a form of abstract art – and deeply satisfying.

PICK YOUR COLOURS AND WATCH THE MAGIC HAPPEN  

Instead of using paint brushes, the paint is poured onto a white canvas using cups  filled with acrylic paint. These react with each other when combined and create extraordinary patterns and designs, entirely unique each and every time.


There are a variety of colours, so make it as vibrant and bold or simple as you’d lik. Image: The Paint Pouring People

RELEASE STRESS THROUGH CREATIVITY

Making/creating art is a great way to release stress by increasing dopamine (the happy hormone) levels, brain plasticity and encourages creative thinking. It also aids focus and promotes positive mental health (Deane Alban)  – not to mention the pride that comes with creating your own work (plus it’s great fun). 


Each design is completely different, making it all the more exciting. Image: The Paint Pouring People

MEET NEW PEOPLE EVERY WEDNESDAY  

Join the Acrylic Paint Pouring class every Wednesday between 4 May and 27 July, 2022. Everyone is welcome, from enthusiastic beginners to more experienced artists. Whether you are there to learn a new skill, meet like-minded people or have some after-work fun, you’ll leave with an appreciation for this abstract art style (as well as your very own artwork). 


Chat with others around the table and share ideas about your creations. Image: The Paint Pouring People
