    This is your workshop. There is limitless space for expression and experimentation with this engaging, energetic

    paint what the teacher is painting or bring photo references of your own.

    Day 1 Morning demonstration followed by an introduction to Brusho and time to experiment and explore with Brusho.

    those of you that want to know how to use smart phones and tablets as tools to make life easier... yes I did say easier,
    you can learn some real basic and powerful "digital" survival skills that will make a huge difference in your artistic life.
