Never painted before? No problem. 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 add your own creative touches.

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.
Hope to paint with you soon.
