Preparing for the "All About Art Event" on the 25th July

Have started doing my prep over the last few days for the above event.....my brief is to run 3 x 45 minute Brusho workshops each for 30 people and the SAA usually like their workshop participants to leave with a completed painting.... have warned them that may not be the case with yours truly!!

There are so many tips and  hints to share with Brusho and the main thing is to get people to have a go with it, see what a fantastic medium it is and share a few way of using it. Having said that I have been working on a few fast and easy to complete pieces though not sure yet if they will be achievable in the timescale, still a few more days to work on things yet though...it's quick enough to get the initial impact of the first layers, it's the building up to a finished piece which takes the time.

Here are a few of the things I've been working on

I've had to choose the colours we will be working with which is why there isn't much variety of colour with these and I will have to decide what I'm going to do and as you will all know by now decisions aren't my strong point!! Anyway will be spending a bit more time on this before I decide and it may not be any of the above I will be doing!!


  1. You will pass you enthusiasm on to all the participants, and your choices will be perfect I am sure. Enjoy the occasion.

  2. Thank you for sharing Judith-it will be fun no matter what! I am doing a Brusho workshop where I live soon-only my second-so it's helpful to peek at what you're doing.

  3. Dear Judith you will share well Your passion with the students. Wish I could be one. These works are truly lovely. Have a super day.

  4. Oh I think the blue pot of flowers would be a HIT… I'd love that one, but 45 mins isn't very long to do any kind of wet media painting… unless you have hair driers for every student and do no more than 2 layers and pre-draw the artwork for them.

    1. Just realized the date on this… it is over now… hope it went well, I'd be curious how it went.
