CityArts LIVE Presents: Go with the Flow- Fluid Painting for Beginners By Kerry Harripersad

When the paint begins to flow, so will your creativity! Join the Downtown Arts District for “Go with the Flow”, a beginner’s course in fluid painting. Fluid painting is a form of abstract art that uses acrylic paints with a runny (fluid) consistency, that when combined with each other, creates organic and visually stunning patterns. No paintbrushes or art experience needed! This type of art is fun for all ages. This course will provide you with the materials needed to create one 16×20 fluid painting and teach you everything you will need to get started as a paint-pouring artist. The theme for this class will be ocean waters. The course will be taught by Orlando based fluid artist, Kerry Harripersad. You can check out his work here. We hope you will join us and see how relaxing and fun it is to go with the flow!
