Acrylic Pouring with Artist Sue Ferraro and Studio Art House
Nov. 12, 6-9 p.m.
Special Pricing: $25/person through Nov. 5
Activity Number: 300001-AT
Sue Ferraro, Pouring Artist and Instructor at Studio Art House, will bring special fluid acrylic paints and show students how to layer their favorite colors in a cup. Using a variety of pouring techniques, including flip cups, swipes, and dips, students will create and take home 3 to 4 amazing and colorful abstract works of art on canvas.
After many years of working in traditional acrylic painting and mixed media, Susan (Sue) Passarelli Ferraro switched methods of painting and has been working to perfect the art of “Pouring.” This technique involves creating paintings using a more fluid form of acrylic paints that are poured rather than brushed onto a painting surface. Sue has several series of pours and other paintings, which have been on view at local galleries.
Studio Art House was established in 2000 by a family of artists. First located in Flower Mound, Studio Art House has expanded to meet the growing needs of artists of all ages in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, opening additional locations in Southlake and Highland Village.
