About

Acrylic Paint Pouring with Joyce Groemmer

Interested in abstract painting, but don’t know where to start? Acrylic Paint Pouring is a fun way to loosen up and create beautiful paintings in a short period of time. Paint Pouring dates back to the 19th century but gained public recognition with American abstract expressionists such as Jackson Pollack. Today, Acrylic Paint Pouring artists use new mediums and a wide variety of techniques to achieve intriguing effects and textures.

The process is a delicate balance of planning, surprise and manipulation. Perfect for those without painting experience - but also an opportunity for painters of all levels to experiment with new materials and techniques.

All materials will be supplied. Registration includes a $15 material fee.

Class is limited to 8 people. We will be socially distanced in the education center and masks are required.

 

Please bring a smock or apron - paint pouring can be messy!

You can keep your paintings at the Museum until dry - please plan to pick up on Thursday - Sunday during regular Museum hours. If you prefer to take the wet paintings with you, you may want to bring plastic or newspaper to line the trunk of your car and 2-3 shallow cartons that measure at least 16 x 20 to hold the paintings.

About Joyce Groemmer

As a child, I was always drawing and doodling with markers and colored pencils. I knew art would continue to be a part of my life, but never thought of it as a future career. Then in college, I fell passionately in love with oil painting, changed my major to Studio Art and planned to make painting my profession. But soon after graduation it was clear I needed to find a way to support myself. And so I put painting on the back burner to establish a career in marketing on Cape Cod and later, to devote time to my family.

A pastel class in 2002 was the stimulus I needed to renew my commitment to making art, but now with the pure pigment of pastels rather than oil paint. The passion was still there. I began to show and sell my work and became active in the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod.

Around 2014, I started adding other media to pastels – paint pens, oil pastels, ink and mica. At this time I also stopped working on landscape compositions and focused more on abstractions from nature – cropped, close-up sections of photos I took – compositions that could exist as paintings in their own right.

In the winter of 2018, I started experimenting with fluid acrylic pouring. I immediately loved the medium, the process and the beautiful, complex textures that I could not achieve with pastel. Some of these paintings are purely non-objective, but most continue to be inspired by the shapes and colors of Cape Cod, Maine and Utah landscapes, mostly oceans and rocks.
