A lot of people who come to our events for the first time feel a little bit nervous. This is totally normal! So if you don't think you have the necessary artistic skills, or perhaps you're worried about feeling out of place - don't worry, we've got you covered! 

It's important to remember that Paintvine events are all about having fun, being creative, and socialising. Our goal is to provide a 100% judgement-free environment, so you can experiment with art in a safe space. It doesn't matter whether you're a seasoned artist or a complete beginner – everyone is welcome. In fact, most people who attend Paintvine events haven't painted since they were in school! We have people coming in large groups, on date nights, mum & daughter bonding and lots of people come along on their own. 

If you haven't been to one of our events yet, here's a short guide on what you can expect:

Arriving at the event

When you arrive at the event, you'll be greeted by our friendly hosts who will tick off your name and show you to your seat. You'll be given an apron to protect your clothes and all the art supplies you need for the event. You can purchase drinks and food from the bar to enjoy throughout the event, or come early and treat yourself to dinner first! We recommend arriving at least 10 minutes early so you can settle in and be nice and relaxed when the event starts.


Our hosts will introduce themselves and the artwork for the evening, as well as explaining how the event will run. They will go over the equipment you have in front of you, and a few tips about how to use the gear and keep it clean, so your evening is fun and easy.

Time to get creative!

Once you've been introduced to the artwork, it's time to start creating! Our hosts will guide you step-by-step through the process, giving you plenty of time to work on your painting and offering tips and guidance along the way. You'll be amazed at how quickly the time flies as you immerse yourself in your artwork. 

If you're feeling a bit stuck, or missed the last instruction - make sure you pop up your hand to get your artists attention so they can come and help you out.

Break time

Half way through the event, we will take a 10 minute break to give you a chance to socialise, order drinks and food, and take a breather. You'll have plenty of time to chat with your fellow artists, admire each other's work, and share your own experiences.

Finishing touches

As the event draws to a close, our hosts will continue with step-by-step instructions, and help you add the finishing touches and make any final adjustments. You'll be amazed at how much progress you've made and how proud you are of your creation.

Once the event has finished, the artist will round you all up and take a group photo. Say cheese!

Take your artwork home

At the end of the event, you'll have a unique and beautiful artwork to take home and display with pride. You'll leave the event feeling inspired, relaxed, and proud of your accomplishment!

Paintvine events are a fun, relaxed, and welcoming environment for anyone who wants to explore their creativity and meet new people. So, take a deep breath, let go of any expectations, and come prepared to have a great time!
