In this Fluid Art Masterclass Workshop, artist Saskia Malwina will equip you with all the knowledge and technical skills required to create an effective acrylic fluid abstract. This workshop explores the fluid styles achievable with a thinner ink-like consistency.
Students will be taught the process, unique techniques and science behind the exciting cutting edge ‘high flow’ acrylic paints and artist-grade pouring medium. In a fun, supportive and creative environment students will learn to vibrantly express themselves in the abstract realm. Key compositional skills such as the use of colour, balance, positive and negative space are taught to students, under the experienced guide of a professional Artist.
The workshop will start with an introduction to the style covering the painting basics, composition, pigment weights and colour theory, accompanied by an information booklet,
After the introduction a series of demonstrations will be conducted explaining step by step the practical techniques required to create each unique effect.
The effects include, creating various cell styles, tree ring pour, string pulling, marbling, swipe and blow torching. Students will paint three canvases during the workshop to collect when dry.
The result is breath taking, unique artworks that are both artistically striking and finished with an archival level of quality.
PLEASE NOTE: Your finished pieces will require a drying period of 24hours so will need to be collected after this time from the studio, or we can ship it to you for $20 (payable on the day).
