How do I enrol in Paint Club?

You can enrol here: Join Paint Club

Your membership will automatically renew each month or year (depending on your subscription choice) and will only stop if you cancel, so you only need to purchase one membership once.

How does it work?

Each month you'll be invited to join a live virtual painting tutorial where you'll be shown step by step how to create a new painting. These will be hosted and live streamed in a private Facebook group on Saturdays afternoons (NZT).

You'll get an email letting you know it's there, so you can join the event and get the supply list and any tracers for that month's painting.

You can join and paint along with the live event or watch the replay any time that suits. And you'll have 24/7 access to the replays.

What if I've never painted before and can't even draw a stick figure?

Don’t let that stop you!  Silke has taught hundreds of people just like you how to paint, and get great results. You don’t need any experience. She teaches at all levels. Check out what others have said about their painting experience with us.

All our paintings are created especially for people who've never painted before or feel they lack any creative ability. 

With our easy to follow step-by-step guidance just about any non-artist can create a painting so there's no need to feel nervous. The aim is to have fun and relax, regardless of your painting skills. 

And Silke will always be there to answer any questions and guide you while you’re painting. It’s like having your own personal art coach!

I just don’t think I’m creative enough? Will this work for me?

Absolutely! Silke has taught thousands of people how to paint. Almost all of them have never painted before and still created beautiful paintings. You can check out their masterpieces on our facebook page photo albums.

Silke has used her years of experience painting and teaching to develop a unique step by step teaching method that's so easy to follow, ANYONE can do it.

What if I don’t have time to watch the videos each month?

Not a problem! You’ll have 24/7 access to replays, so you can paint whenever you like, and as often as you like! Play, push pause, paint at your own pace.

You can’t really get behind in Paint Club. Everyone has a different pace and schedule, so you’ll all paint at different times and be working on different paintings. The video tutorials will always be there for you to watch whenever you’re ready.

What will we be painting?

Silke, will surprise members each month with a brand new, fun painting created especially for Paint Club.

These paintings are exclusive to Paint Club first and can not be purchased anywhere else.

What if I don't have any art supplies and don't have a clue what to buy?

We've got you covered! Every painting tutorial comes with a full supply list, including paint colours, brushes and any tracers so there's no guessing what you'll need. Easy! 

How long is each painting tutorial?

Every painting is different and teaches your different styles and techniques, so the time to complete them varies. Some can be done quicker and some have a few more steps so take a little longer. On average it take around 3 - 4 hours to complete a painting from start to finish. 

When are the Live Tutorials?

Our Live painting tutorials will be once a month on a Saturday afternoon.

What if I can’t make the live date?

You can paint with us live on the date or watch the replay any time you like after the live event. You'll have 24/7 access so you can go back to your tutorials as often as you'd like.

How will I access my painting tutorials?

Everything will be hosted in a private facebook group you can access 24/7. All your tutorials, supply lists and any other resources will be there.

Don't worry about not being tech savy, it's all easy to find and I'll help get your started.

How and when will I be charged?

Your monthly membership fee will be automatically charged to your card each month on the same date you joined.

Your membership will automatically renew each month or year (depending on your subscription choice) and will only stop if you cancel, so you only need to purchase one membership once.

Is there a contract?

Nope, and you can cancel any time you like. No commitments, other than to have fun painting!

What are the payment options

You can enrol in Paint Club for only $20 a month or $200 a year (2 months free) until midnight Thursday 16 September 2021 (NZT)

How do Virtual Paint Parties work?

Check out our Virtual Paint Parties FAQs page

What materials will I need? 

You'll need a canvas (or something to paint on), some paint and some brushes! We'll send you a full supply and colour list before each painting tutorial, so you'll know exactly which brushes and colours to get.

If you don't have any art supplies yet, we made a video that will give you some tips on what art supplies you need to get started painting and where to shop for the best prices. Click here to watch.

What if I don't have the recommended art supplies?

You don't have to have the exact same supplies as we'll be using. You can get creative using any colours you like and paint on anything.

Or, If you're currently in lockdown and/or can't get out of the house to buy art supplies, do a scavenger hunt around your house and see what you can find. Don't worry if you don't have the exact materials on our recommended supplies list, you can use whatever you want like colour pencils, pastels, marker pens, watercolour paint and there's lots of other things you can paint on instead of canvas.

Check out our alternate supplies list for ideas.

What if I missed a tutorial?

No problem, it'll be recorded so you'll be able to watch the replay any time after. You'll have 24/7 access.

What if I still can't create a painting that's any good?

I'll be honest, I can't guarantee your results — that’s up to you. But what I can promise is that I'll be teaching you the EXACT method to create each painting.

The same method I’ve used teaching thousands of other first time painters that have seen them finish their session with a massive sense of accomplishment and BEAUTIFUL paintings they're proud of.

And I'm not kidding when I say — if they can do it, so can you!

Is Paint Club suitable for children?

Yes absolutely! We recommend ages 7 and older. Depending on the age of the child, some of our paintings may be a little harder to do. We've noticed that kids actually often do better than our adult painters because they're not nervous about trying things!! 

We have lots of parents / grandparents and kids paint together. You only need one membership between you.

Do I need to download any software to join/view a Virtual Paint Party?

Nope. As long as you have a Facebook account there's no need to download any new software or signup for any new accounts - nice and easy.

Will I be able to ask questions during my Virtual Paint Party?

Of course! Our goal is to make sure you have a fun, relaxing time AND create a painting you love, so you'll be able to ask questions via the comments. Our artist will need to keep painting, but will be able to answer your questions between steps. And also after the paint party too.

I'm not in New Zealand, can I still join Paint Club? 

Absolutely. If the Live Virtual Paint Parties happen at a time that doesn't suit in your timezone, you can still join and watch all your tutorials on replay. You'll have 24/7 access to watch whenever suits.

What's your refund policy? 

All memberships are sold on a no refund or exchange basis. 

What's your cancelation policy?

You can cancel anytime you like! You're not locked in to any contracts so you can unsubscribe anytime. You'll get an account, where you can login to manage your payments and subscription, so you'll have complete control.

Will I still have access to the tutorials if I cancel my membership?

A Paint Club membership works that same way Netflix does, once you cancel your membership you will no longer have access to any content. 

Do you sell gift vouchers?

We sure do. Our gift vouchers are like giving two presents 'cos you're gifting an awesome art experience AND they'll end up with their own finished painting!

What's the copyright on your paintings?

All our paintings are created especially for you to enjoy during your online or in-person painting session only. We (Heart for Art) hold the copyright and intellectual property for all our paintings and any notes or videos that go with them, so you can’t reuse or reproduce them in any form, anywhere, no matter how much you like them.
