“This is SO MUCH FUN! It doesn’t matter if you are creative or not because every piece is so amazing in its own way.” —Ellen Ewing
Let’s get together and play with paint! I will provide all supplies, including a 12x12 canvas and paint. You will be able to choose up to 5 colors. If there is a certain room that you know you would like to display your art, you can choose the colors to match/coordinate in that room. It’s pretty awesome.
I will tell you that you have little control of the exact outcome. I will show you ways you can get some hopeful results, but for the most part, you have to just trust the paint and the process. I’m in love with watching what transpires, as the paint moves around the canvas.
BYOB or wine, we’ll hang out in the studio while your painting has some time to set. It takes a good 24 – 48 hours for the paint to dry completely, however, after 15 minutes, the fluidity of the paint is done/set. When you leave, I will provide you a piece of plastic to put the painting on in your car to transport it home. The passenger side floor, or trunk, would be the perfect for transport. Make sure you have one of those areas open for your return home.
I look forward to sharing this super enjoyable art medium with you, and I cannot wait to see the results that everyone has when it’s all said and done.

NEED TO KNOW
ANYONE CAN DO IT (this super fun form of painting can be messy, so wear something you don't mind getting paint on for the painting portion of the night)
ALL materials provided for you (paint, 12x12 canvas)
Your paint stations will be on the floor (we'll be sitting on the floor). No worries, Yoga is done on the floor too, so you'll be warmed up and ready to go!
BYOB or Wine - It takes some time to allow the paint to set, so you get to hang out with your friends at the studio while you have a drink. Feel free to bring snacks or order pizza whatever you want! We might even play some fun games!
Please note the outcome of the painting is part of the excitement! Examples of what the paintings look like can be seen here, but please note everyone's paintings will come out differently. We truly will be going with the flow!

“Way better than the [traditional] paint and wine events! Had a great time and actually ended up with something I would be happy to receive as a gift or hang in my home.” —Cynthia Villacis
Hi there! I’m Heather Walton, creator of beautiful things, traveler, lover of bourbon and life. I created ALT ART in 2018, after moving out of oil and acrylic still life painting, and into a much more freeing and alternative type of art. Fluid art painting is all about going with the flow. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. When I put paint to canvas/wood/etc., knowing that I’ve done all that I can, with the tools that I have, only to watch the unknown unfold, is so exciting!!
