PopUp Painting

PopUp Painting’s mission has been to bring art out of the classroom and gallery, into the places where people meet on an everyday basis. The sessions are all about unleashing creativity in a social setting with a wine glass in one hand and paintbrush in the other with no prior experience needed.

Everyone is welcome at their events - but especially novices. The event is especially designed for people looking for something different to do on a night out and the is prefect activity for a date. Most people at the events haven’t even picked up a paintbrush since school, if ever so be rest assured that you really don’t need any experience to take part.

The events typically last for about two and a half hours. In this time an artist guides guests step by step through an advertised painting. They’ll deconstruct the painting and show you how to build the painting up. You don’t have to follow along though - at every event there’s at least one person who goes ‘off piste’ and does something totally different - which we love.

Expect frequent breaks or “drinking times” throughout the session, and by the end of the evening everyone has a beautiful masterpiece to take home with them.
