Adult Classes at the OAC

Acrylic Paint Pouring Art Class - Level II

If you were in Beth's class last year - you are now ready to move on to this one! You will explore additional techniques and styles of creating fluid acrylic art. You will practice pouring tree rings, blowing flowers from puddle pours and swiping. Each piece will be original and unique – no two pours are ever the same. This class includes two complete paintings ready to hang on your wall (not including the frames). Wear clothes you can get paint on. All supplies included in the course fee. Previous acrylic paint pouring experience not required.
9 am - 12 pm Saturday
Instructor: Beth DeCoux

Date Nite/Create Nite!

Make your date night - CREATE Night. This is an evening to create together or work individually - with the goal of having fun. Try your hands at throwing pots on the wheel and/or to create something practical or whimsical using hand-building techniques. NEN = No Experience Necessary. The pieces that you have created (individually or as a team) will be fired once, glazed with the color of your choosing, and fired a second time. Dress casually in clothes that can get messy. You may pick up your pieces at the Arts Center
in 3 weeks. CREATive treats will be available.
