History & Values
It began with the simple act of putting paint to canvas. In 2014, lifelong artist Anjl Rodee taught a small painting class in downtown Seattle and quickly recognized the joy and transformation that it brought to everyone in attendance. In a short while, the business grew. She chose the name BrushCapades to represent the escapade, or creative journey, that happens when you pick up a paintbrush and express yourself through color and creativity. In 2019, Rob Buchert, Anjl’s favorite brother, joined to extend the reach of BrushCapades to his home city of St. Louis and beyond. The mission of BrushCapades will always be to provide the warmth, inspiration, humor, and care that we were founded upon. We invite you to take the journey of free expression, creativity and artistic technique and discover the creative spirit that is within you!
Expression through art provides countless benefits, including stress relief, creative thinking, and a boost in self esteem and sense of accomplishment. Even if you’ve never painted before and think that you have no talent, be assured that there is a creative spirit inside of you that loves to come out to play!
