In Mr. Niemerg's after school art class on October 6th, students observed a very messy demonstration of pour painting. If you have any old paint at home this could be a great way to use up that paint. Watch a few videos and you will be on your way to making your own pour painting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNdMFXAZK_A
