Adventure into the fun and unpredictable world of Acrylic Pouring!
Elena Corradino will teach you everything there is to know about this exciting style of abstract art.
You will make 10 paintings of various shapes and sizes, and each will be different. You will learn 5 different types of pours, including a double flip cup, AND 3 ways to make “cells”. You will discuss color theory and what makes abstract art pop, and Elena will go into detail about the materials, brands she uses, etc. You will leave with the knowledge of how to do this on your own as well as beautiful art!

In this hands-on class, learn to create beautiful wire wrap jewelry from a master wire sculpture artist.
Using semi-precious gemstones, fine copper wire and over two decades of experience, Russell Lawson guides each student to gain a working knowledge of essential wire wrapping techniques. Students will become familiar with the tools of the trade and add an exponentially utilitarian skill set to their artistic repertoire.
In this 2-hour session, students will create one complete wire-wrapped pendant with a semi-precious gemstone wrapped in fine copper wire. Fee for the instruction, supplies, knowledge and complete pendant is only $75. All materials will be provided.
Students will have the option to add-on a “to-go” kit for supplies to make an additional pendant at home, using their new skills (add $25 at checkout). The kit includes one semi-precious gemstone (gemstones will vary) and fine copper wire. Wire cutter is not included in add-on kit.
This class will be offered twice in November, on November 20 and 21.
On Saturday, November 20, the class will be held in the Studio at the Carousel (the 2nd floor tower between the Kingsport Carousel and Kingsport Farmers Market) from 10 a.m. – noon.
On Sunday, November 21, the class will be held in the Inventor Center (118 Shelby Street) from 2 – 4 p.m.

About the City of Kingsport
Founded in 1917, the City of Kingsport (pop. 53,000) is located on the Tennessee-Virginia border at the crossroads of I-81 and I-26 near the geographic center of the eastern U.S. The city is widely known as a planned community, designed by renowned city planner John Nolen and wrapping around the foot of Bays Mountain – a 3,500-acre park, nature preserve, planetarium and observatory. Kingsport is recognized as an International Safe Community by the National Safety Council, a Healthier Tennessee community, and won the 2009 Harvard Innovations in American Government Award for its higher education initiatives. While many city names are duplicated throughout the U.S., there’s only one Kingsport – a fact that invokes community pride, known locally as the “Kingsport Spirit.”
