Our New "Paint at Home" Video Series

 As we have learned over the last six months, life as we know it has changed. We are spending most of our time at home. And if you have kids in your life, chances are they may be doing a lot of their learning at home too. We have created the "Paint at Home" video series for our YouTube channel to help bridge the gap between art education in a traditional school setting and making art at home. 


Episode 1 features Dynasty Brand Specialist Jill Fitzhenry and her granddaughter Kylie working together to paint an inspirational wooden scroll cut-out. Painting techniques such as  basecoating and stenciling are great for developing hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills--and they are fun too!

Please click here for a complete list of supplies and materials needed for this project. 

More "Paint at Home" episodes are coming soon--follow our Facebook page and Instagram for details. In the meantime, we invite you to visit our complete archive of videos on YouTube

And as always, to learn more about all of our Dynasty brand brushes please visit our website.

Remote Learning: Preparing For Art Class At Home

Back to School is looking a bit different for most families in the United States this year. Many households are preparing for another round of remote learning by creating a space in their home suitable to use as a stand-in "classroom." In a normal year, paint brushes likely aren't on the typical school supply list, but as many parents find themselves having to orchestrate art lessons at home, they will be in need of some quality art tools for their children's home studio. 


Luckily, the Kid Dynasty collection of brushes has it covered! These economical, versatile brushes are constructed with shorter handles, perfect for younger artists with smaller hands. Bristles are available in both round and flat shapes and would be the perfect addition to your home art classroom. To learn more about all of the Kid Dynasty varieties and our entire stock of high-quality artist paintbrushes, please visit our website.

More Artists Rave About Water Lily by Dynasty!

Praise continues to pour in about our new line of watercolor brushes, Water Lily by Dynasty! Perfect for professional artists and painters, hobbyists, and art journalists this collection of cruelty-free brushes has something for everyone.

By Dynasty Artist Annie Strack, painted with Water Lily

From painter Annie Strack:

"Water Lily by Dynasty Brush is the absolute perfect brush for watercolor painters. It performs like a Kolinsky Sable more than any other synthetic brush I’ve ever used. It’s not that the hairs are softer (which they are) or finer (which they are) but that they are much more absorbent than other synthetics. As a result, they hold much more fluid and allow for long sweeping brushstrokes without having to stop as often to reload the brush like you normally have to do with synthetic brushes. They are soft enough that you can skip across rough paper to let texture show though, and yet they have just the right amount of spring for painting fine lines and details. Because they are synthetic, they hold an incredibly fine point that doesn’t wear down like a natural hair brush. I’ve been waiting a long time for a great vegan alternative to using Kolinsky Sable, and now here it is. It has all the attributes of an expensive natural hair brush, but with the durability and affordability of a synthetic. This is my new ‘go-to' brush, that I’m using in all my paintings."

From artist and designer Jill Fitzhenery:

"The new Water Lily brushes from Dynasty are so delightful to use. I love the tips on the brushes that allow me to produce a fine line or a broad stroke. I feel so inspired by these beautiful brushes!"
