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.
