About Brentwood Art

Check out our BAC video!

The folks I have painted with in class, over the past 20 years at the Brentwood Art Center, have inspired me with their respective talents and some have become close friends. I would say that apart from the obvious acquiring of skills, as taught so competently by Barbara Ashton, being in a class is almost a " cross - pollinating " experience, or it can be. You see such creativity in others and you bounce ideas off each other. Painting with others and observing helps to prevent you from getting into bad habits and just doing things because "that's how you've always done them!"
