Fluid and drip painting workshop

Drip and fluid painting techniques

If you like abstract art you are very likely to enjoy our fluid art workshop and find it fruitful and inspiring for your Art studies. During this 5-day workshop you will be taught on how to achieve the major effects of this technique, which was experimented and then exploited by some of the most famous twentieth century artists, such as Francis Picabia, Max Ernst and Jackson Pollock.

Your creativity will be enhanced while learning how to drip, pour or even sprinkle paint onto the canvas in order to create unexpected and motivating combinations of “liquid” colors. Different effects will be created through the use of different spreading tools, such as palette knives and trowels as well as through the use of various techniques, like for example drizzling, dropping, puddling and splashing.

Part of the workshop can be dedicated to the fundamentals of the hand marbled paper technique.

This workshop is open both to beginners and to professional artists who wish to explore a new painting technique.
