The defining characteristic of this acrylic painting technique is that you don't apply the paint with a brush or palette knife, but rather use gravity to move the paint across a canvas. The results are unlike anything you can get with a brush: fluid flows of paint without any brush marks or texture.

For this first test class, we will be using small tiles. We plan to schedule a second class in the near future where we will be pouring on a larger surface.
