John LeBlanc's artistic process revolves around following his interest in the differing mediums and techniques, subject matter and style to see where it leads.
John studied at the Art Students League of New York City. He has exhibited across Maine including Public Space Commissions at Old Town Elementary School and Eastern Maine Medical Center. John has been active in many art's organizations in the Bangor area.
John will give a demonstration of Acrylic Pour Painting, sometimes known as Dirty Cup Pour, on April 20. Acrylic Pour painting is an innovative way to create an art piece using Fluid Acrylic paints instead of tools like brushes or knives. These paints can be poured directly onto the canvas or added to a cup and then poured. The canvas may then be tilted to let gravity move the paint across the surface. The results are unlike anything you can get with a brush.
