We’ll provide all the arty materials you’ll need and show you, step by step, how to create the featured painting. Our step by step Paint Parties are easy for anyone to follow. No experience needed. Beginners welcome.

Never painted before? No probs. Our Paint Parties are created especially for people who've never held a paint brush or reckon they can't even draw a stick figure. If you think you're not creative or artistic - we're here to help you unleash your inner artist and have fun doing it.
Any skill level welcome. You're free to follow along and paint the featured painting or go freestyle and paint whatever you like.
We believe art has the power to heal. Our mission is to make art and the positive benefits of painting more accessible to everyone. We wanna use paint and canvas to bring positive change to Wellington. Together lets paint the town happy.
