brush’d

brush’d offers a fun evening to channel your inner artist with guided instruction through specific pieces of art created on a canvas with acrylic paint.

You can even enjoy a beverage of your choice while doing so if you’d like! So… why brush’d? The main vision of brush’d is to create a fun atmosphere where people can socialize and create a beautiful piece of art they may have never thought they could create, all while supporting other LOCAL businesses!

Supplies are purchased from local companies, brush’d will also be donating a portion of all ticket sales annually to a local charity or school, and one of our favorite aspects, your instructor will always be a student currently attending an Idaho college or university with an Art Major.

Old Boise 6th & Main

The area known as Old Boise sprang up as a commercial district in the Original Town-site as early as 1864, catering to miners, military men and settlers. Although most of the original buildings were replaced by those we see today between 1890 – 1920, this area still contains the largest concentration of historically and architecturally significant commercial buildings in Boise.

Although the district contains a variety of architectural styles, the fairly uniform size and scale of its buildings provide a cohesive appearance.

Idaho State Capitol

“Idaho’s Capitol is our state’s most-treasured building. Within its beautiful sandstone walls, laws have been passed, issues debated, and citizen rights safeguarded for nearly a century. To ensure the Capitol’s long history and legacy, the Idaho Capitol Commission was appointed by Governor Phil Batt in July 1998. Subsequent Governors have been strong advocates of the Commission and its goal to restore and preserve the Capitol to its original splendor.”

“On January 9, 2010, the Idaho Statehouse, “A Capitol of Light,” was rededicated after 3 years of restorations and renovations. For more information about the project, including the addition of the underground wings, check out the Restoration page.”
