Upcoming CLASSES at Vacaville Art Gallery
To keep informed about my classes, please join my VAG Classes group
I am now teaching Acrylic pouring classes at our local Art Gallery in Vacaville. As this year continues, I will be working on putting together even more fun classes, not just acrylic pouring… Fun stuff coming up, I promise!
FYI……. at this point in time, these classes are geared for adults. Due to the use of torches and other potentially hazardous materials, I am only allowing adults. Perhaps in the summer, I will put together a kids acrylic pouring class.
Magical Acrylic Pours!

Loation: Vacaville Art Gallery

What is all this hype about acrylic pouring you say??? Well, it’s fun, it’s messy and it’s magical!
Learn how to create your own magical acrylic pour with just a few simple steps. Plan to get messy and just let loose! There are a TON of videos out there, but why watch a video when you can create your own! Metallic paints are a must, and glitter is a plus! Come join Chris, bring your canvas (s), a handful of paints, an apron, a few other items listed below along with your wild imagination!
To see more of her acrylic pours, check out her portfolio on https://www.wingsnscales.com/glittery/graphic-portfolio/
Items to bring:
- Canvas – no larger than 9×12, bring more than one if you want but keep in mind these will be very wet when you go home, and you will need a tin or two tins large enough to contain them.
- 5 to 8 colors of acrylic paint, any brand will do, even the cheap stuff works (metallic and glitter paints work great too!)
- An apron
- Paper towels
- A disposable tin pan large enough to fit the size of your canvas with some space around it so you can pick up the canvas easily.
Here is the link to some of the basic supplies I use in class.
I will be supplying a torch, silicone spray, gloves, baby wipes, cups, and a few other items you may need or want to try.
Contact Chris by email for any questions you might have, firstname.lastname@example.org
