Give art a go!

Join us for a fun night out at ARTYPARTY! 

Book now! 

ARTYPARTY run social painting events for all ages, groups and talents, including Paint & Drink nights in partnership with The Third Eye, Tuatara Temple of Taste, Wellington and Paint & Drink Sunday afternoons at Speights Ale House, Petone. As local Wellington artists, we support Inverlochy Art School (a registered charity) with a small donation per booking.

NO EXPERIENCE necessary. We welcome all ages and talents. Everyone has a creative side. Our ARTYPARTY is a positive, safe place for you to get your art on while enjoying a drink with friends and family! Painters will be stepped-through and cheered along the way to completing their own masterpiece to take home at the end of the night.

$49.50 includes your first drink* (selection of wine, beer or non alcoholic options available), a 3 hour guided class from a professional Wellington artist, use of all materials (easels, brushes, paint, protective apron) and a canvas to paint and take home and hang on the wall!

Our format

ARTYPARTY  is a fun 3 hour ‘paint & drink’ event for anyone who wants to give art a go.

Our standard format is as follows: 

Start time eg. 6:30pm (note: we start at 3pm on Sunday afternoons in Petone)

6:20pm – 6:30pm – Arrive

Arrive, get a drink, put on an apron and mingle  (1st drink is included in ticket price)

6:30pm – Painting begins

A professional artist steps the group through painting a simplified version of a famous painting or local scene. Compositions are designed to be completed by a beginner within the two-hour class time. All participants will take home a completed artwork! There will be plenty of time to ask questions and receive one-on-one help from us, local professional artists.

7:50pm – Breaktime (10 minutes)

Painters can buy drinks and nibbles, socialise and check out everybody’s artwork.

8pm – Painting continues

Painters will continue painting and complete their masterpieces on the night.

9-9:30pm – Wrap up and group photo.

As Artists ourselves, we will not rush anyone to finish.
