About This Class


Welcome to Studio Fu: Brush Up on Brush Care.

Studio Fu is my take on Kung Fu, which literally means “time spent at skilful work.” Studio Fu classes are short, and will help you make the most of your time, tools, and techniques as an artist.

This class is about cleaning and caring for your brushes, whether you use watercolour, gouache, ink, acrylic, or oil paints. I will show you how to clean fresh and dried paints in ways that won’t have you using harsh chemicals. Even if you only use one or two of the mediums I mention, each chapter has helpful information and tips for caring for your brushes so that your tools last and are always ready for your next creative project.

Join me in my laundry room, which is where I do my studio clean up, and let’s Brush Up on Brush Care.
