Featured painting

Perky Pukeko (click here to see the full painting).
With their long gangly legs and curious strut you can't help but smile when you see these cool birds. Living pretty much all over New Zealand, they're the highlight of many a road trip. They're a fabulous, much loved feature in our landscape. Come paint your happy pukeko with us.

Hope to paint with you soon.

Never painted before? No probs!
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 paint whatever you like. 

We believe art has the power to heal.
Our mission is to make art and the positive benefits of painting more accessible to everyone. We wanna use paint and canvas to bring positive change to Wellington. Together lets paint the town happy.

Can't make this date but really wanna paint? 
No probs, just check our other upcoming events.
