brush'd offers a fun evening to paint an acrylic canvas with step by step guided instruction, all while enjoying a beverage of your choice if desired! brush'd was started by two best friends that had a blast unleashing their inner creativity while sipping some vino. With basically no art skills and zero painting experience, they were actually able to create a piece of art they were proud of. It was very apparent this was something they wanted to share with everyone! In addition to recreating this experience, they wanted to figure out a way to do so while supporting the local community. Thus, brush’d was born! To keep with the local vision, a portion of all proceeds will be donated to a local charity or school annually, all beer & wine served will be from breweries and vineyards across Idaho, supplies & materials are from companies in town, our instructors are students currently attending an Idaho college majoring in Art, and the events are hosted at locally owned and operated venues, which offer a more relaxed & cozy atmosphere!
