Adventure into Acrylic Pouring

August 14, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

Adventure into Acrylic Pouring

Adventure into the fun and unpredictable world of acrylic pouring with instructor Elena Corradino in a class provided by the Kingsport Office of Cultural Arts. She will teach you everything there is to know about this exciting style of abstract art!

Participants will make 10 different paintings (five wooden panels, two ceramic tiles, a wooden round, an 8×10 canvas and a deep edge 5×5 canvas) and will learn five different types of pours, including a double flip cup and three ways to make “cells.” The class will discuss color theory and what makes abstract art pop and the instructor will go into detail about the materials, brands she uses and more. Everyone will leave knowing how to continue making acrylic art on their own and will take home some beautiful art.

The class will be held 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 14 at The Inventor Center, 118 Shelby Street. There will be a 30 minute break for lunch, so participants can bring their own or eat local. All materials for the class will be provided.

Register online at www.EngageKingsport.com or call 423-392-8414. Please note, online sales will end 48 hours prior to the class.

About the City of Kingsport

Founded in 1917, the City of Kingsport (pop. 53,000) is located on the Tennessee-Virginia border at the crossroads of I-81 and I-26 near the geographic center of the eastern U.S. The city is widely known as a planned community, designed by renowned city planner John Nolen and wrapping around the foot of Bays Mountain – a 3,500-acre park, nature preserve, planetarium and observatory. Kingsport is recognized as an International Safe Community by the National Safety Council, a Healthier Tennessee community, and won the 2009 Harvard Innovations in American Government Award for its higher education initiatives. While many city names are duplicated throughout the U.S., there’s only one Kingsport – a fact that invokes community pride, known locally as the “Kingsport Spirit.”
