Acrylic Pour Painting Is The Creative Hobby You’ve Been Searching For

We’ve all been there, scrolling through social media when all of a sudden, we can’t stop looking at the video that’s started auto-playing.

For me, this can be anything from Tasty videos to adorable puppies. But one of my favorite recent trends is acrylic pour painting. It sounds pretty complicated, but it couldn’t be any more simple.

Acrylic pouring is a style of painting where acrylic paint is mixed with a pouring medium and then, you guessed it, poured onto a surface, typically a canvas. The finished product results in a beautiful, one of a kind abstract piece. The first time I saw an acrylic pour painting was in a little beachside art gallery in Florida, and I’ve pretty much been in love ever since. Just in case you haven’t seen the process before, let’s take a quick break and be mesmerized together.

Okay. Now that you totally get why this is a thing you want to try, you’re probably wondering where and how. Don’t worry, I wouldn’t leave you hanging. If you want to create one of these beauties for yourself, you just need to take a quick jolt up to Dublin.

Terra Gallery & Creative Studio offers a bunch of different acrylic pour classes. They cost $35 and your ticket includes not only your instruction but your supplies as well. The classes are great for participants of all ages, and skill levels. That last bit is important for me because I don’t have a great track record when it comes to successfully painting anything.

The classes will walk you through the process, help guide you while you choose your colors, and show you how to get the picture perfect pour. Once you’ve finished, you just have to wait for 24 hours, and then this custom piece of art can happily hang on your wall and impress your friends!

Alright, who’s ready to go make something wonderful?
