Flow Art Painting Class

Join us at Circa 1857 for another Flow Art Painting Class!

In this class, not only will you have tons of fun, but you will learn the basics of flow art, a painting trend that combines paint and chemicals, making some ‘far out’ imagery.

Denise Kerr, a long time art teacher, will lead the class, beginning with a short introduction to the scientific compounds this technique involves. Next, we’ll demonstrate a few techniques you can use to achieve a beautiful finished product. Once we get through the basics, it’s time to CREATE!

The class is scheduled for July 30, 2019, at 6:00 until 8:00. You may stay longer if more time is needed to finish your masterpiece, or just to socialize!

The class is $50 per person, which includes all the materials (paint, brushes, canvas, chemicals, etc.), wine & beer, and light hors d’oeuvres. A portion of the fee goes to the instructor, but additional tips can be left at your discretion.

Limited space available. Max class size is 30 people.
