Pouring Paint at The Art Room
The Pour Your Heart Out February Painting Event at The Art Room was quite a success. Two sessions were filled with artists excited to try their hand at pouring mediums. Wood hearts were prepared and primed and I demonstrated the technique for paint pouring using a strainer. You can check out the process on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUusjAmCBjY&t=39s
At the end of February, I took it on the road and taught a paint pouring workshop at Westfield Middle School in Bloomingdale as part of their T.E.K. (Teachers Encouraging Kids) after school sessions. Deyana Matt, Art Teacher, was a wonderful host for The Art Room event as I taught students and staff paint pouring techniques. One student exclaimed "this is the best art project I've done all year!" and everyone asked for a return workshop. So, I'll be at Westfield Middle School again in May for our Paint Pouring #2!
Stay tuned for another upcoming paint pouring workshop in April, "When It Rains, We Pour!" Looking forward to sharing this exciting new art medium with other creative artists. What a blessing it has been watching The Art Room expand and grow. Lessons are filling up through the week and Saturdays and I am incredibly thankful for having new students coming to The Art Room, creating and learning new art mediums!
