The Loaded Brush
On a typical afternoon, artist and owner of The Loaded Brush Aaron Ziobrowski brainstorms ideas for new paintings between planning each part of the classes he holds at his BYOB art studio. The prompts he's created for his students range from an Andy Warhol–style quadrant of pop-art bananas to a reproduction of Starry Night that includes the dogs playing poker that were erased from the original. Natural light floods into the studio through tall windows, and tarps cover surfaces so that paintbrushes can move without worry. Although aprons are provided, students should wear old clothes or full-body canvases in the event of a paint splatter.
