Ceevio Art is Sydney's 'Next Level' Paint and Sip experience. Your art coach, Chris, is a professional portrait and landscape artist, so not only are the classes lots of fun, you'll also pick up a few painting skills and techniques along the way. When you come to a Ceevio Art paint and sip class, you run the risk of taking home a painting that you will be proud to show off to friends and family.

We have a weekly Tuesday evening class at Paddo RSL running from 6:30 to 9:30pm, and we are also available for private parties, and corporate team building events anywhere in the Greater Sydney region, Illawarra, Central Coast and Blue Mountains. Everything you need is supplied by us.

Well I can't comment as I wasn't able to attend due to not feeling.
Im very disappointed that I didn't get to go

A lovely experience. RSL was not busy so had plenty of space and quiet. Good food and free parking. Chris was great at explaining each stage of the painting process to achieve the final picture. Even non artists will be able to paint.

Our group had an incredible experience with Chris! He created a welcoming environment and provided clear instructions that made painting enjoyable for everyone. Chris's passion for art inspired us all to get creative and have fun. We highly recommend his class for a fantastic group activity!

Chris was a fantastic teacher, he took my team of 11 people through a beautiful painting. We all walked away feeling really proud of what we had accomplished. I would love to do another class led by Chris
We did the painting at Paddo RSL in Sydney, the venue was ok, one tip is you can only buy food and drinks from the venue, unfortunately our class was from 3-6pm so the bistro was closed on arrival and didn't re-open till 5:30, so our only snack options were chips from the vending machine.

A bit challenging to do Van Gogh sunflower, but the teacher explains what to do very well and step by step. Amazing class as alaway.

Super fun class!

Fantastic night thoroughly enjoyed painting Opera House at dawn. My friend and I so happy with our painting that we are coming back next week. Chris is a great teacher and his encouragement helps us succeed.

Cathy Ridge Oct 2023


Well explained class - everyone came away with an artwork they could be proud of ! Plenty of supplies provided.

Jodie Taylor Oct 2023


My mother, my friend and myself attended the Blue Cockatoo class. I haven’t painted anything since school over 40 years ago. We loved it, great teacher and surprisingly and unexpected good results.
My mother was very critical of her work but as predicted by our teacher Chris, the next day she loved it more every time she looked at it and was quite excited.
My friend’s son was very impressed with his mother’s artwork (high praise) and I myself went out the next day and bought art supplies so I can try and paint cockatoos in many colours.
We are all looking forward to working with Chris again soon.
It was a fun night

The teacher was very good in teaching step by step & showing how to paint in Monet style. For a beginner, the result was good. The environment was relaxing. Most enjoyable for a first timer! Thx

Really loved painting the Outback Sunset and very proud of my painting. My family really loved it and they are very encouraging of my work. The variety of choice i have through the pictures that Chris posts for every month keeps me excited to continue painting and gives me immense confidence and pleasure. Chris is a really good teacher.

Chris is such a fantastic teacher, I would never have believed that I could finish a beautiful painting in 3 hours. Under careful guidance the step by step and layer by layer a painting emerges that you will be style stunned you painted.

Thanks Chris, these fun classes are the highlight of my week!

Challenging and so much fun doing this one of Botanical Gardens. The use of masking with harbour bridge and opera house was another new technique to learn. Chris is a great motivator and instructor we walked out with a painting to be proud off for beginners and frequent flyers like myself.

I love how Creevio Art always introduce new tips and skills on a painting. A great class

Though i feel like 3h class is not enough to do the painting, we ended up rushing on the 2nd part after the break. However, still very much an enjoyable class

Great class and loved this landscape. Chris’s instructions are easy to follow and he is always available to answer your questions. I’ve come to 8 classes now and my confidence in my ability to paint has increased so much. I truly look forward to paint the subject I choose because I need to feel the connection with it first.

Chris, our teacher was excellent. Will be back for sure.
Would be great to have more of a break for dinner, but I'm not sure how you'd achieve this given 3 hour time frame Great class.

Leanne Courtney Feb 2023


Lots of fun, I enjoyed learning new ways to layer paint and everyone’s art looked amazing at the end of the class whatever level painter you were. Chris runs the class in an interesting way that keeps you engaged for the whole time.

Amazing as always. Chris is a great teacher and makes us look good by helping us step by step to produce amazing artworks i never could have done alone. He adds in new fun painting techniques to match beginners levels too. Great value for money, fun group activity & good venues with plenty of parking.

I really look forward to my Tuesday evenings at Paddo RSL with Chris. To just arrive and have everything laid out for us is such a pleasure. 3 Hours races by and somehow from nothing, (and with a glass of wine in hand), we create our own little masterpiece to take home. Chris is a fabulous teacher and as much as the lesson is brilliantly structured and easy to follow, he also gives us the freedom to go off in our own direction on the canvas if that’s where the experience takes us. What a great find!
