November 20, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

2021 Pour and Sip banner

An intimate experience Acrylic Pouring with Janesville artist Nancy McKinnon

Nancy does workshops for various groups, chaired the Wisconsin Regional Artist Association, and is member of the Janesville Art League, among others, and her work is frequently on display and exhibited in the Janesville, Beloit, and Madison area.

“How can one get so excited about pouring paints in and out of a cup, literally throwing it on a surface, and not knowing what is going to happen? No prior experience and having fun is what this process is all about. The results are very satisfying for anyone who has never painted before! Everyone sees something different in each painting.” – Nancy McKinnon
