On a ‘Maestro’ event we are recreating a somewhat popular masterpiece of art history. Carefully selected, and they have been broken down to manageable steps for even complete beginners. it is truly fascinating to understand what has made these pieces of art so acclaimed by imitating their famous brushstrokes. Due to the complexity of these pictures ‘Maestro’ events last for approx. 3 hours.

We are putting a great effort to distinguish ‘Events’ and ‘Workshops’, since they are different indeed here at Paint It Easy. Events would like to be a creative, refreshing and entertaining going-out alternative. Workshops, while remaining a fun activity, are tailored for those, who want to dig deeper and familiarize with different mediums and techniques.
It is recommended to attend from the age of 12, provided that concentrating for 2 to 3 hours would not be a problem for the young participant. Regarding kids parties, they suit the best to children between 6 and 12.
No, you do not have to bring anything except yourself and your mood for creativity! You are going to get all the necessary equipment and materials from the easel to the paints and canvas.

The guided painting events last 1,5 to 2 , or 3 to 3,5 hours with a short break. Our workshops last 3 to 4 hours. It is advised to calculate 15 min before and after the sessions as people tend to come a bit earlier and stay longer after the painting. The length of our private events can be variable – it depends on the personal needs of the group.

Nearly everyone is surprised at their inner Picasso! Perhaps it is not that obvious, but dealing with your expectations is also a significant part of the experience. What one might regard as a failure, the other might see as courageous brushwork or the burst of creativity – and vice verse. We agree here with Bob Ross: “We do not make mistakes, just happy little accidents!”
