What is Paintvine?

It’s a fun social painting class where our artists will run you through step-by-step instructions on how to create your very own masterpiece in a fun and relaxed bar in Auckland. Perfect for dates, catching up with mates or for meeting new friends.


We provide all the materials you need (high-quality canvas, acrylic paint, brushes). All you need to bring is your creative spirit (or find some at the bottom of a glass). At the end of the night you will leave with your own painting ready to hang up on your wall.

So what are you going to be painting?

Christopher Perkins’ (1891–1968) Taranaki was highly influential in the development of the regional style in New Zealand painting that was dominant from the 1930s to the 1950s. Perkins placed a dairy factory, which he saw as a sign of progress, in front of a sharply stylised mountain. In advocating a distinctly New Zealand school of painting, Perkins was passionate about three things: the use of New Zealand's ‘marvellous light’ to portray local conditions and sharp landforms; the use of local subjects and regionalist icons with symbolic meaning; and avoiding the use of European examples
