We're keeping the studio closed a little longer but you can still learn to paint with us online.

Hi everyone and a big woohoo for getting us to lockdown level 2. 👍We're hoping you'll all be so busy enjoying all your favourite shops, cafes, eateries and fave spots again, that you wont mind that we've decided to stay closed a little longer. ☕️🍰🍟🍔🏖

Hi everyone and a big woohoo for getting us to lockdown level 2. 👍We're hoping you'll all be so busy enjoying all your favourite shops, cafes, eateries and fave spots again, that you wont mind that we've decided to stay closed a little longer. ☕️🍰🍟🍔🏖

We don't believe we can offer you a quality painting experience and a 100% covid safe environment, so we'd rather wait till we can be absolutely sure we can deliver to our previous awesome Paint Party standard again before we reopen the studio for in person painting classes.

Our goal has always been to share the joy and healing of art with you, and we cant wait to get back to teaching you face to face as soon as we feel we can safely do so. We'll reassess as we get closer to Level 1.

Thanks so much for all the love, messages and ongoing support over the last couple of months. We're having a blast with virtual paint parties, but we really miss having you in the studio and can't wait to serve you in person again soon.
Till then, stay safe, stay healthy, stay happy
Aroha nui 😍

THE CHALLENGE
🥇 Choose your favourite painting.
🥈 Find three things lying around your house.
🥉 Recreate the painting with those attributes.

Try it with your kids. They'll have fun and learn about art. I'm sure that ticks the homeschooling box. Have fun!

So simple but sure to bring many smiles 😃🙃😊😁😃 We love this idea. 😍
Might pay to check the forecast first though to make sure the rain doesn't wash away your efforts too soon!

Message us photos if you do it and you'll make us smile too. 😊We'd love to see your artistry.

We’ll show you, step by step, how to create your masterpiece. 😍 It's totally easy, and you don't need any experience. Paint in your pyjamas, your onesies or whatever you’re comfy in.

We believe art has the power to heal. We know how good art is for our mental health and well-being, especially during difficult times. While you paint, your mind gets a much needed break from the worrying thoughts and stresses you may be feeling. 

Our mission is to share the positive benefits of art by making it easy and more accessible to everyone. Join us online to create your masterpiece and experience the joy of creating your own art.
