Hi there! So you have decided to attend one of our paint and sip events or host a private paint party or a corporate paint and sip event or are just curious how paint and sip works? then you are in the right place. Below we have tried to answered the most frequently asked paint and sip questions.

If this is the first time you have heard of paint and sip and are overwhelmed, well, don't be. Because attending or hosting a paint and sip event is easier than you think, as Paintelaide provides a complete package (a local art instructor, all the supplies required to attend or conduct a fun paint and sip) with various venue options across Adelaide. So let's get started.

What are paint and sip classes and how does paint and sip work?

A: Paint and Sip classes are a fun way to spend the day/evening/night with your loved ones. Where a friendly local artist will guide all the guests through the painting process step-by-step in a two hours session and also provide individual support if needed.

Each guest will get a take-home canvas (40cm X 50cm) along with the other art supplies (paints, brushes, aprons and easels). We will also provide other set-up material required e.g. table covers, paper towels etc.  So all you need to do is sip on your favourite drink and create a masterpiece of your own.

Do you offer private paint and sip parties and conduct paint and sip at home, office or a location of our choice?

A: Of course we do! We love to host private (Hen's, Birthdays, Girls Night) and corporate events and can travel to your venue (house/ office/ party venues) or arrange a suitable venue (we have a list of partnered restaurants, bars and cafes across Adelaide) for your event.
