Pour Your “Art” Out!

Pour Your “Art” Out!

Get your painting clothes on or bring a big shirt to protect yourself, when we discover the art of pouring paint! Using three of your favorite colors we will create an artistic masterpiece by letting the paint flow over a white canvas. Swirls and drips, spatters and splashes are all a part of these beautiful paintings. We might even move the paint with air from hair dryer or tilting the canvas. Get your wild ideas together and join us using acrylic paint and a pouring medium. Canvas and pouring medium are supplied in the class fee. Participants must bring three small bottles of acrylic paint (choose three of your favorite colors) and one small bottle of white acrylic paint (four bottles total).

Nathalie Bagwell is our class instructor. Class will be held September 15, 22, 29, and October 6. Class time is 12 noon to 1:15pm. Class fee is $25 per class. Classes will increase in complexity, so you can take one class or two or all four! You will be surprised at how easy and creative you can become in this unique art class!

Due to interest in this technique you must register no later than one week before the class. Call the Depot Gallery, located at 320 East Ascension St., Suite C., Gonzales, LA 70737, at 225-644-8469 to register for this class. Adults and supervised children are welcome in these classes.
