Pouring Acrylics – A One Day Workshop for Beginners

WITH Denise Sturmwind


Sunday, May 30, 2021 (New date!)
One-day workshop
10:30am – 4:30pm


McTavish Academy of Art
1720 McTavish Rd, North Saanich


In this workshop, we will experiment and play with this unique & fun medium, creating flowing colourful works of art.

We will start with the basics; no previous experience is needed.  I will provide detailed demonstrations and instructions for each new technique, allowing students to build comfort and familiarity with the medium and techniques.

The class will be kept small (maximum 8 students), so there will be ample opportunity for one-on-one time with the instructor.

I look forward to experimenting and playing with you in May. Don’t forget to bring your playful self !


I have been creative for most of my life, seriously pursuing Fine Art Photography for many years before moving into Mixed Media for the last 20 years. I became ‘hooked’ on pouring acrylics a few years ago, and have had a lot of fun experimenting with the unpredictability of flowing paint.

I enjoy teaching and sharing my creative adventures with others in my workshops.
