The Imagination Brigade’s Creative Studio Sunday has been revamped! We will meet one Sunday a month for a themed, but open studio class. Each class will center around a different theme and will have a short discussion, optional prompt, then plenty of time for you to work on this project (or one of your own!) Each class will be $12-$20, depending on the supplies provided, except for the art retreat and field trip (see below). Class dates will be announced 2-4 weeks before each session.

ONE-ON-ONE SESSIONS

Brooke offers private art coaching classes and branding strategies for artists. Art coaching classes focus on intuitive/process painting as well as art journaling as a way to develop your creative practice. Private classes are great for people who have a unique or hectic schedule, or are more comfortable working in a personalized space. Branding strategy sessions teaches you how to set up or enhance your online presence as an artist or creative.
