The many reasons to throw parties:
bachelorette party, birthdays,... there is not going to be enough space here...
Paint & Sip Celebrations
Host the best night ever! Your guests don't need art experience to have a good time. One of our local artists will guide the group through every step of the painting. Your party will have a private room, complete with all the little extras to make the night run smoothly.
With a private painting party, you get to call the shots! Ask us about custom paintings, drink specials, catering partnerships and music playlists.
How to book?
Private events are booked by placing a refundable deposit to secure your desired date and time (after availability is confirmed by the studio). Get in touch with us on our contact form below and start planning your desired event together.
We want your event to be fun, organized and effortless. We provide you with all the supplies needed for a party, including a professional artist instructor and a barman to host & guide your guests through the event.
All events are hosted by a local, contemporary artist and a bartender.
Prices contain all art materials (paints, brushes, 30×40 cm canvas, apron etc.)
A welcome drink: glass of prosecco.
Private Party Room
In-studio parties will have an entire room to themselves, with plenty of space for all guests. Our smaller painting room can hold 12 seats with A-frame standing easels, while the larger art atelier can hold 24 seats, equipped with tabletop easels. In case of more than 24 people, we organize the event at the Markthalle or at a location of your choice.
Our studio is equipped with ice and ice buckets to make it easier to keep drinks and food at the right temperature. You’ll also have counter space for food or gifts. Complimentary plates, napkins and silverware are available for our guest to use.
We provide real glassware for all guests and everyone is welcome to use. No need to go out and buy disposable cups!
We’ll have a crowd-pleasing playlist ready for you. Or, you can tell us what sort of music you’d like for your event and we’ll tailor a playlist to your needs. And don’t worry – we make sure the music doesn’t get in the way of hearing the artist’s instructions.
Final headcount for all private parties are due 48 hours prior to your event date. Unless you’ve worked out other arrangements with us, doors will open 30 minutes before painting starts. This gives guests time to arrive, settle in and socialize, and gives the host time to set up food or other items for the party.
Language of the events: English. We speak German, French and Italian too.
The actual painting time varies between 2 and 3 hours (recommendation and applies to standard 30 cm x 40 cm paintings painted individually). This can vary according to special themes and features.
The events start 30 minutes before the painting and finish 30 minutes after the last brushstrokes. When planning your party, calculate with an extra hour upon the painting time.
You don’t have to choose a painting in order to book an event, but the final selection must be confirmed with the studio at least one week before your event date.
From our constantly growing catalouge you can choose from Standard and Maestro paintings, 2 or 3 hours long respectively. (see catalogue)
If you need assistance choosing the right painting for your group, just get in touch with us.
