Event Type

In this course you will produce a beautiful triptych that you can hang in your home, enter in a future art show, or offer for sale. A triptych is a work of art that is divided into three sections or three canvases that are displayed together as one. It is, therefore, a type of polyptych, the term for all multi-panel works.

This class is for individuals that have a rudimentary knowledge of acrylic painting and pouring. If you have no experience with acrylic pouring, you are still welcome to attend and will still leave with a triptych. We will briefly discuss the acrylic pouring methods, materials that you need for acrylic pour painting, recommended paint for acrylic pouring, pouring mediums, and supplies you will need to start pour painting.

Troy will demonstrate how to prepare your canvas for painting and discuss methods to preserve the canvas after you are finished. Two of the many techniques that you will learn are use a blower (hair dryer) to move and blend paint and use of the kitchen torch in your painting. Bring a hair dryer and torch if you have one. Don’t worry if you don’t have one as Troy will have several to share.

Acrylic pouring can be messy; no matter careful you are you will probably wear some paint home. Bring apron or wear clothes that you do not mind decorating with paint. Also, wet acrylic paintings are difficult to transport so bring cardboard boxes or plastic trash bags large enough to place three 11 in X 14 in canvases on in your car.

All other supplies (canvases, paint, gloves, paint cups, stir sticks, paper towels, etc.) will be furnished.
