1 Day Brusho Workshop

Brusho is a brilliantly intense paint powder that comes in little pots of magic! It has completely unique qualities that make it unpredictable and fun and ideal for anyone that wants to create loose, impressionistic and vibrant artwork. Brusho allows you to create visually stunning, expressive artwork with the minimum of fuss. It's fun to use, beginner-friendly and ideal if you want to learn how to create very contemporary, very striking images to hang on your wall or even sell! We spend the morning session experimenting with Brusho, trying out some simple trees and flowers and in the afternoon choose either a figure, an animal or a landscape for your main piece. Think of it as a collaboration between you and Brusho!
£70 including all materials and buffet lunch.

Our model for the day will begin with a series of short static and moving poses which we will capture in charcoal. We then go on to some longer poses in charcoal and line and wash. After lunch with a change of attire, our model will pose for longer sessions (around an hour), allowing you to focus on more detail – tone and texture in your choice of medium – charcoal or pastel.
