Sharing a passion for art!

I started The Curious Brush in 2016 to encourage kids to explore art, experiment with different materials, and create in new ways. The experience matters as much as the masterpiece! I’m an encourager of first attempts and second tries, and I believe the very process of creating helps kids relax, express emotion, solve problems, and feel brave and successful. I'm glad you've found me, thanks for visiting, and please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions!

I understand that life sometimes interrupts our best intentions, so if you need to cancel:

• If the start date of the activity is 2 weeks away or more, I'll issue a full refund.

• If the activity is less than 2 weeks away:

   --Camps (minimum 4 hours in length): I'll provide two 8x10 canvases and a small selection of paints for each day of camp your child misses, so they can have some creative time at home 

   --Weekly classes (3-6 week duration): If you are cancelling the entire session, I will provide one 8x10 canvas per class, plus a small selection of paints, so your child can have some creative time at home. 
   --Birthday parties, private classes, or Scout badges: I'll make myself as accessible as possible to reschedule to a new date within 4 weeks of the original date.
