Brush Marks

Two-day Workshop:

  • Friday November 24, 6-9pm
  • Saturday November 25, 10am-4pm

$175

Instructor: Holly McWilliams

This is no normal afternoon soap opera. This is a class to embrace the fear of the bold, be dazzled by the beautiful and doing it all with a big brush! Piddly, little, scratchy brush marks be gone! Learn how to use the dexterity of your hands and the bristles in your brush. One brush can be more expressive then a whole arsenal of your teeny-weenie's. Bring confidence into your work because you have the knowledge of how to use your tools of trade.... Your Brushes!
