Resident artist and experienced teacher Aaron Ziobrowski guides artists of all skill levels with step-by-step instructionas they unleash artistic visions upon blank canvases in a bright, clean art studio. The art studio's variable calendar boasts two-hour painting classes where 12 guests face tabletops or freestanding easels, following Aaron's instruction as they carefully recreate a piece of local art or a renowned masterpiece. Students swirl home-brought adult beverages on tongues and glide painterly strokes across the canvas, creating light, depth, and form upon canvases with dripping paintbrushes to complete landscape, modern, or still-life paintings. The Loaded Brush suggests arriving 15 minutes early to class wearing clothing whose appearance will be enhanced by accidental paint splatters, such as an old pair of jeans or a Salvador Dali mustache.
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.
