Fluid painting, or paint pouring, is a technique used with acrylic paints and flow medium that creates unique and really amazing effects. You end up with an incredible piece of abstract, fluid art that will amaze you, your friends, and your family. Plus, it is really fun! A relaxing form of art that is great for everyone.

All supplies are included- enough for each student to make 2 fluid pieces of art based on two techniques, dirty pours and swiping!

But on days like this– when it’s drizzling outside my window– it’s nice to unplug from it all and work on a project that doesn’t depend on your ability to use a computer. It’s just you, your hands, and your imagination." • Paweł Czerwiński - "untitled image" • Gareth Harper - "I took this shot whilst making a short video, inspired by the Gospel accounts of the birth of Jesus. My friend lent me their beautiful nativity set, some other friends lent me their desk lamps for lighting and it’s amazing what you can achieve with some fairylights, sellotape and depth of field. Anyways, Merry Christmas. God bless us, everyone." • Senjuti Kundu - "This is two-year-old Malki, her name means Queen in Yiddish. We were at the park playing with paint and bubbles and this shot was a remarkably lucky one since toddlers move so fast. This photo is important to me because it captures her innocence and reminds me how happy and carefree I was that day, hanging out with her." • Quino Al - "Alfarería" • Hanny Naibaho - "thanks postcard and latte"
