Raise Your Brush
After finding great joy as an art teacher for more than a decade, Laura Carter and her husband Andy, decided to take their love of art outside the traditional classroom and establish Raise Your Brush. A short time later, the art studio, which unites painting lessons with social drinking, began to garnish high praise for it’s casual atmosphere. Such praise came from both customers as well as local media outlets including Living Dayton.
During each painting class—Laura’s most popular offering—students are first encouraged to loosen up with a glass of wine or beer from the studio’s newly remodeled bar. Students then cozy up to tables to make the most of the included supplies, ranging from aprons to acrylic paints to blank, potential-packed canvasses. In the ensuing hours, amateur artists recreate the evening’s theme-specific image with the help of Laura’s artistic eye and articulate tongue. Though the themes constantly change, past images have included cityscapes, a fleur de lis, and moonrises. Regardless of the night’s theme, all students are free to take their homework straight home to display on any already vibrant mantle or surprisingly lonely family room wall.

“This was a fantastic experience. The staff was friendly, experienced, organized, helpful and well-prepared. They were delightful in their interactions and balanced in their assistance: they were available if we had questions or needed assistance and were not fussy or looking over your shoulder if you were fine on your own. This was lots of fun and well worth the small fee. THANK YOU!!!”
“ Great fun! ”
