Franklin County Arts Council (FCAC) is sponsoring an acrylic pouring workshop facilitated by Donna Campbell Smith on Saturday, September 29, 2018, 6pm, at her home studio, 159 Mays Crossroads Road, Franklinton, North Carolina.
Acrylic paints are a medium which came into use by artists in the mid-1900s. It is a versatile medium that mixes well with water and resins, dries fast, and can resemble oil or watercolor painting — depending on how it is mixed. When diluted it can be very fluid. This property has made acrylic pouring a popular technique for artists and craftspeople. The results can be beautiful abstract art or used as backgrounds for more traditional art styles.
The acrylic pouring workshop fee is $30 for FCAC members, or $40 for non-members. For this workshop, all materials are included in the fee.
Previous experience in art or acrylics is not required. Everyone will take home an 8×10 one-of-a-kind painting at the end of the class.
Registration deadline is Saturday, September 22, 2018. Contact FCAC to register by calling 919.497.6910 or via email. Mail checks payable to “FCAC” with “acrylic pour” on the memo line to FCAC, PO Box 758, Louisburg NC 27549.
