Eileen Moore -Monday, July 12, 1-4 pm.
Brusho is a one-of-a-kind, unique painting medium! The colors are a transparent, highly-pigmented watercolor ink that comes packed in small drums which contain the dry, crystalline powder. Once the Brusho is applied, you really have no choice other than to let the paint do the work!
If you already use watercolor paints, then Brusho is a great medium for you to try, use it alone, or alongside your traditional watercolor paints. It can be a very forgiving medium, allowing you to paint in a loose, expressive style.
Introduction to Brusho with Eileen Moore

Brusho are highly pigmented watercolor pigments. Just a few sprinkles of crystals when wet results in glorious bursts of color. Students will be introduced to their unique characteristics and how to use them to enhance artwork.
