Casey Ballantyne   Casey has been working with woodworking for several years, but recently learned about pouring acrylic on canvas. He viewed hours of video to learn the basics but has developed his own sense of the medium and has expanded the art form with many ways of manipulating the paint. His sense of color is spot on and his sense of flow brings lots of interest to his work. Casey teaches his techniques in three venues at this time. Watch our class calendar for when you can take a class!
