How to Clean a Paintbrush

By The Arty Teacher - September 1, 2018

This video ‘ How to Clean a Paintbrush ‘ is a bit of fun but has a serious message if you want to keep your sanity and your brushes clean.  I show this to all my classes and it’s very satisfying to see them clean brushes properly.

I’ve asked students to watch this for homework and then asked them to describe the process at the start of the next lesson.  I love homework that teaches valuable skills but doesn’t have to be marked!  In fact, I have a free resource that lists a range of art homework that doesn’t need marking.

Below is the amazing ‘Master’ brush cleaner which is a great product to have to extend the life of your brushes.  Just read the reviews.  Also, two best seller paint brush sets to get you off to a good start this term!
