I am an artist/author and I create and publish wellbeing resources for kids and adults using my love of art and positive psychology.

I love facilitating private groups for "Paint & Sip" classes for adults, or "Paint & Singalong" parties for children at my Bayview Boathouse Art Studio or as a pop up at venues to suit.

It brings me the greatest of joy to see most people as beginners leaving proud and enlightened to how joyful, therapeutic and satisfying painting can be!

My classes can be catered for any special occasion, Team building activities, Xmas Parties, Corporate events, friendship groups, family outings, Aged care, fundraisers, hens nights, birthdays, parent/child groups, mothers groups, teacher wellbeing activities or date nights.

I also do Kids Creative Workshops using Arts & Crafts to teach children important values such as Gratitude, Kindness and a Positive mindset which helps children to live a happier life!

The rest of the time you'll find me painting large canvases for Art Galleries of all things beautiful; boats, holiday scenery & any special moments captured on film. Commissioned art of loved ones, special memories and places are also welcome.

If I had time I would paint everything beautiful that I see! :-)

Kylie has a workers with children certificate:

Mindful Educator Essentials Certificate at the Mindful Schools USA.

15 years of Painting Art + Publishing Mindset Resources for Kids/adults/teachers/therapists.

Rachel Tyler Kotthoff Mar 2024

I celebrated my birthday with some friends at Kylie’s beautiful boathouse paint and sip. First time for me and I loved it!
Kylie has created an incredibly special atmosphere. To be able to be creative, sip wine, laugh with special friends and look out over the sea made for a beautiful night of special memories. Kylie’s instruction meant that even the most dubious artist painted something worth keeping. Don’t hesitate, book!

Kylie Doyle Dec 2023

Lovely. Beautiful surroundings. Kylie was very warm and welcoming and the girls enjoyed every minute!

Liz Fitzgerald Dec 2023

The 2 hours flew by, did feel a little rushed and not time to stop and sip/munch, maybe needed to have the munchies on the painting table? Kylie was amazing and I was so impressed that all of our group managed a painting quite similar to the original and yet all indivually different at the same time. it’s amazing what you can achieve with the correct guidance. I would recommend the class to anyone, it was fun, great location, very friendly, loved Zia. I will be back to do my lady in the dress

Michelle McIntyre Dec 2023

A fun and relaxing day with a great view. Kylie is very welcoming, loved doing the painting we chose. Will be going back to do another one.

Such a wonderful birthday outing! We can’t wait to come back. Beautiful venue, lovely teacher and great tunes. Thanks Kylie!

Jack Johnson Nov 2023

Fantastic service. Kylie was amazing and very accomodating, we had a great time. We will definitely be going back.

Liz Baxter Nov 2023

Kylie is a vivacious, encouraging, talented and warm spark who made us feel instantly welcome and empowered to paint. Her studio is bright with the most stunning view and with a tailored playlist, the setting couldn’t have been more perfect. My husband and I enjoyed our class so much that we bought my parents a private class which they absolutely loved. Kylie went over and above for both classes to make sure we could paint something meaningful and unique. We all agreed that Kylie has something different about her - she leaves you feeling better than when you arrive and encourages you to be, live and share your best moving forward.
Thanks for a beautiful time, Kylie. We’ll be back!

Teacher's response

Thanks Liz. It is a privilege to meet such lovely kind people like your family! Nothing makes me happier to encourage creativity & happiness! :-) Thanks for your lovely words it means the world to me! ❤️xo

John Kearney Oct 2023

Kylie ran the perfect team building event for our group of 40. We had a fantastic setting overlooking the water and Kylie took us through each step to create our works of art. The team had so much fun and were very impressed with their results. Kylie was very attentive leading up to the event and on the day, to ensure every detail had been considered and the team could relax and enjoy the day. I would highly recommend Kylie to run a corporate event in future.

I had the pleasure of hosting Kylie Johnson Art Studios at our retirement villages, and it was an absolutely delightful experience! Everyone in attendance had a fantastic time during her paint courses. Kylie's passion for art shone through in her teaching, and her talent as an artist was evident in every stroke.

Working with Kylie was a breeze; she was easy to collaborate with and always had a warm and friendly demeanor. Her communication skills were top-notch, ensuring that everyone felt comfortable and engaged throughout the sessions.

Kylie's artistic expertise and ability to guide participants through the creative process made the classes truly enjoyable and enriching. Her patience and encouragement created a positive and inclusive atmosphere, allowing individuals of all skill levels to feel inspired and accomplished.

I have no hesitation in saying that Kylie is not only a skilled artist but also a wonderful instructor. I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to work with her again in the future. If you're looking for a talented artist who can bring joy and creativity to any event, Kylie is the perfect choice!

Thanks for finding me and bringing this wonderful experience to life.
I’m Looking forward to working with you more! ‍♀️x

Kathryn Hawkins Jul 2023

We had the most wonderful fun at Kylies Paint and Sip class. Kylie was warm, friendly, engaging and took the mums and little girls through a fun afternoon of painting and singing along to her party mix! She made the nervous artists feel very comfortable and her step by step instructions were very clear.
Kylie supplied all the art supplies, and they were all very good quality and well maintained. We left on dusk with a masterpiece each and some special school holiday memories with our daughters. Thank you Kylie! See you again soon! xx

Teacher's response

Thanks Kathryn :-) I love seeing mums and kids bond in a creative way Especially in the School holidays to entertain them So good for your connection so thanks for letting me be part of it. xo

Ariane Cavill Jul 2023

Gorgeous location and so much fun! The girls really enjoyed their painting lesson, picking super power cards, the music and little puppy Sia.

Mellisa Molenaar Jul 2023

We had the most amazing team building afternoon with Kylie at the helm. Our corporate team have a diverse range of people and every one of them came away having loved the experience, taking away an individual sense of well being. Thank you Kylie

Rebecca Cornwall Jun 2023

Beautiful location, excellent teacher who was there to support and guide at every turn, great evening.

Jenny Dobrincic Jun 2023

Kylie was a great teacher, so helpful. Everything was provided for the painting - we only had to bring wine! Very enjoyable evening. Thank you.

Clair New May 2023

Kylie hosted a corporate event for us and it could not have gone better! Although most of us claimed to be terrible at painting, Kylie is a talented, kind and patient teacher who helped all of us find our inner creativity and paint a beautiful picture. She brought a great energy and set the mood with an upbeat music playlist, and thoughtfully customized a painting for us to suit our requests. I would highly recommend Kylie for future Paint & Sip events, and we are already planning to get her back for another fabulous night. Thank you Kylie!

Amanda Neal May 2023

What an absolutely beautiful morning painting with Kylie. My daughter and her friends loved every minute of their session and the end result was amazing! Kylies ‘s approach was warm, encouraging and so kind! From the first moments of booking the party to leaving her studio, it could not be faulted. Thank you!

Peter Chidiac Apr 2023

Such a lovely environment with a really helpful Tutor who was so accommodating and hospitable. Me and my friend had the most wonderful time!

Laura Griffin Apr 2023

The event was perfect!

Kylie was so accommodating, friendly and professional. Everybody keeps telling me how much fun they had and they all love their paintings!

Will be recommending her to all my friends, and will definitely be in touch for events in the future :)

Pixi McGrath Mar 2023

What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon - 14 kids completely, embracing and enjoying art!

Painting class review by Rachel Troy - Sydney

Caroline Furlong Mar 2023

I had Kylie come to my home for a collective bonding/ creativity session with my golf colleagues. Kylie is an inspiring, knowledgeable and fun teacher. We not only had a great time but everyone produced an artwork that they were proud of. Kylie bought all the materials we needed. I couldn’t recommend this activity enough. We’re planning to do another session later in the year.

Painting class review by Caroline Furlong - Sydney

Beth Gee Mar 2023

Would highly recommend Kylie’s classes. She is a wonderful host and guided us through our beautiful drawings. Also set in a stunning location on the Pittwater. Thanks for a wonderful evening with our mums x

Stacey Fisher Mar 2023

We couldn’t fault the lovely Kylie who was amazing on the day and made Emily’s 10th birthday party so memorable. She was kind, attentive, professional and had the girls engaged and painting the whole time. All of the girls were so excited that they got to take away their painted master pieces on their very own canvas.
I would highly recommend Kylie Johnson for your next party or get together x

Katrina Hawkins Jan 2023

Beautiful setting and Kylie was really accomodating to our group and very encouraging. She gave us great instruction and tips that improved our paintings. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.

Malou Atayde Jan 2023

Michelle Rovere Dec 2022

Such a wonderful way to wind down for the holiday break - fantastic atmosphere and a wonderful teacher!

A beautiful venue too.

Painting class review by Lorraine O'Sullivan - Sydney

Gemma Hughes Dec 2022

What a fabulous afternoon my team had with Kylie! I couldn't rate it highly enough. Kylie was the hostess with the mostest! The setting is absolute perfection. You couldn't find a better spot to have a team building session. We loved every minute and have already recommended to so many.

I cannot wait to go back!

Alison Newby Dec 2022

Was such a magical experience for our end of year get together. The location is spectacular and Kylie is an amazing host/painter. She is so fun & so patient. Lovely music and great vibes.
We will be back for sure!

Paint and Sip Class review by Alison Newby - Sydney

Tullia Mannan Dec 2022

Highly recommend. Was such a fun team building activity to celebrate the end of a very busy year. Kylie is AMAZING! Such a wonderful, kind and caring facilitator too! She explains everything so clearly and is happy to help you with your masterpiece. Those with no painting experience will be surprised at your ability after attending one of these sessions - guaranteed! (and that's speaking from experience mind you!)

Paint and Sip Class for Team Building review by Tullia Mannan - Sydney

Kate Ferati Dec 2022

This was such a successful activity for our Christmas Party! The team raved about it. Kylie is friendly and fun and helps everyone find the artist within themselves.
We sang away while painting and admiring the view. We were then headed for lunch at a gorgeous restaurant in Church Point. I cannot recommend this experience enough.

Stacey Denver Dec 2022

Thank you Kylie for making Ciara’s birthday so special. She had such a lovely time and the works they all produced were all so unique but amazing.

Deborah Nov 2022

Such a stunning venue for a fun night out with friends. Kylie runs the classes so well, very helpful, encouraging and fun! Will absolutely be back.

Mia Raphael Nov 2022

Kylie is a fantastic teacher, my girls and their friends loved their weekly mindfulness craft classes with her. They cherish their keepsakes they make each week, their favourite would be the glitter jar they created together and it now resides on their bedside tables. They leave each class with confidence and happiness ( their words!).

Mia Raphael Nov 2022

My girls have been doing Kylie’s weekly paint and sing-a-long classes for 3 terms and it’s the highlight of their week. They love creating different paintings each week and they equally adore spending time, and being taught by Kylie. You also can’t beat the location of Bayview Boathouse!

Anna Bourakova Nov 2022

We had an amazing experience. Kylie has catered to all of our needs, she let me paint a completely seperate artwork that caught my eye that day.
Beautiful Boat House studio facilitation with stunning views of the bay.

Sarah Beard Nov 2022

Very relaxed afternoon, fantastic setting, great teacher. Made to feel welcome and special. Will go again for sure!

Adam Brown Nov 2022

Absolutely fantastic experience.
Kylie was fun, professional and made the night a massive success.
We're already planning another event with her in the New Year.
My artwork now hangs in the Louvre
I highly recommend it.

Cindy Smart Oct 2022

What a beautiful experience to share with my 8yr old daughter and her friends! A safe and supportive space to reconnect with your creativity and yourself in gorgeous surrounds. With Kylie’s guidance we all produced artworks to be proud of and loved the process & a new way to relax !

Haidee Keegan Oct 2022

Kylie was great we had her come to our place for my seven year old daughters birthday party. She was well organised and had everything sorted. The girls had an awesome time and were really proud of their artwork!

Carly Whibley Oct 2022

This is the second time my 8 your old daughter has attended this class both with different friends of hers. Kylie is a fantastic teacher and exceeds expectations. The location is to die for and creates a great space for creativity. We will be back.

Sonika Singh Oct 2022

Kylie was amazing and so great with my little one putting her at ease straightaway. The venue itself is beautiful and relaxing right by the water which is simply magical. The session was really well run and the techniques taught will help my little one definitely as she continues to further her interests in painting. Kylie has a unique talent to bring out the best, encourages individuality and incorporates motivational activities making it much more then the usual painting class. We will be coming back for sure!

Colleen Lee Sep 2022

I had a very enjoyable art experience at the Bayview Boathouse Art Studio. Beautiful surroundings, a lovely view and a very helpful teacher. I was in a very small class but it was still good. I imagine a full class, sipping, singing along and painting would be great fun.

Min Sugden Aug 2022

Kids and their parents loved it! We invited Kylie to our place for 11 classmates to celebrate my daughter’s 10th birthday party. This class is the main theme in addition to other free play at home. Kids immediately looked forward to the class when they started to see Kylie’s setup. I never thought they were able to enjoying sitting there and doing art, which is why luckily I found Kylie’s singalong style at least suits kids if some can’t sit and do art, but I know most will enjoy singing and great songs prepared by Kylie. All kids enjoyed the experience and feel so good about what they can achieve at the end! Kids played wildly during some breaks but as soon as they were in Kylie’s painting, just like magic, they were so good at focusing on painting, which is a relief for me so that I could freely do other things. Kylie is super good, just trust she’s so experienced organising kids and sure she knows so well what kids like, so she also prepared 1-2 other activities kids enjoyed, which pass on uplifting messages to them at the same time. Absolutely recommend it if you are looking for group kids activities!

Painting class review by Min Sugden - Sydney

Jen Coddington Aug 2022

Thank you Kylie for an amazing painting birthday party for my 10 year old daughter and her friends! All the girls had the best time at your beautiful boathouse. They left with big smiles and beautiful paintings that they'll treasure!

Christianne Kohlhoff Aug 2022

Fantastic way to celebrate a birthday Kylie was friendly and fun and the location was excellent. We'll be back to do it again!

Siobhan Little Aug 2022

Unfortunately, I was unable to make the paint class, but Kylie was a fabulous communicator and very patient with the rebooking and making suggestions of times we could go. I still didn’t get to make it in the end, but my friends did, and they had a fabulous time. Thanks for looking after them Kylie! xxx

Gemma Grkinic Jul 2022

My daughter had a blast with Kylie at her art class and made some new friends. Beautiful venue and Kylie was so kind, patient and very inviting. My daughter was nervous before we arrived but quickly felt comfortable and out came her full personality.
Thank you Kylie for a wonderful experience.

Vicky King Jul 2022

We had so much fun & it was very therapeutic, in a stunning waterfront setting, thanks Kylie.

Carly Whibley Jun 2022

A wonderful experience. My daughter and her friend had the best time and there art was fantastic. We will be back. Thank you Kylie.

Nadia Bekarian Jun 2022

A truly magnificent experience! We had my daughters 9th birthday here, everything was beyond expectation, the location is stunning and quality of the experience was fantastic. Kylie is a wonderful teacher, she took time with each child (ranging rom 6-9yrs olds) and gave them the confidence and encouragement to produce beautiful artwork they were all so proud of. Each child walked away smiling, happy and with a sense of achievement. I'd recommend Kylie's class to anyone looking for a fun, inclusive, meaningful and memorable day.

Carolyn White Jun 2022

My daughter loved her paint and sing class and can’t wait to return All the children left Kylie’s class glowing and joyful. The incorporation of mindfulness for children is fantastic too and my daughter equally loved this part of Kylie’s class. Will definitely be returning soon

Kristy Andrews Jun 2022

Riley Pearce May 2022

Thanks Kylie for running our Norwest Marketown Workshops!
It's the little Blessing that bring joy and you brought it!

Celebrating abundance and blessings at Easter, Norwest Marketown in collaboration with Kylie Johnson hosted the little ones to create personalised gifts at our dedicated Children Positive Mindfulness Workshops. Kids were encouraged to draw, paint or write, whatever takes their imagination in sharing the holiday joy with family and friends. Fun activities include - thoughtful arts and crafts like rock painting with kindness messages, colouring in gratitude pages from guest host Kylie Johnson’s colouring book. There was also an opportunity to write a gratitude letter or fill out a gratitude exercise sheet. Each bright and happy session ran for 30-40 minutes.

Parents provided positive feedback around how educational and unique the session was in teaching kids the importance of gratitude.

Mindfulness Craft Course for Kids review by Riley Pearce - Sydney

Jacqueline Lindsay May 2022

Absolutely wonderful experience. The best Mother's Day gift I have given and shared in a long time. Kylie is an inspired teacher. The venue is gorgeous. An enriching artistic experience .

Joann Brennan May 2022

We had the beautiful Kylie Johnson as our instructor. She was very helpful with assisting my staff in a team building activity. We laughed, sang along with her great playlist and just had the best time. Kylie came to Hyatt Regency in Darling harbour, with all her equipment as it was easier to have the amount of people stay in the one place rather than try and move them all. This made the activity run so smoothly.
I have never painted, as most of the staff and we were all very surprised in what we all achieved.

Alexi Smith Apr 2022

Absolutely amazing class ! Lovely Kylie makes you feel at ease at once ! Beautiful setting to paint in ❤️ Loved it ! I’ll be back ! Alexi

Ingrid Russell Apr 2022

Kylie was so accommodating to come to our office on short notice! The team loved their session with her and have beautiful masterpieces to show for it too. Definitely recommend Kylie's class, next time we'll see if we can go to her studio for those waterfront views!

Tania Lamble Feb 2022

We really got into it! Kylie give direction but allows us freedom to make the painting our own. It was really fun.

Maria Shaw Feb 2022

Had an awesome birthday celebration with some of my dearest friend while we “sipped and painted” with Kylie. I have done several different experiences and this one is by far the best. Kylie is an amazing host and was able to get us painting! The beautiful backdrop was the icing on the cake! Thanks again and we will be back soon xoxox

Painting class review by Maria Shaw - Sydney

Lisa Hoefnagels Feb 2022

Thank Kylie for a great evening!

I had a wonderful time doing Paint'n'Sip at Bayview. The location is absolutely magical and parking was easy nearby. We were able to bring our own snacks which was great too.

I am not a painter by any means, but Kylie guided us through the process and by the end I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. I would definitely do it again, and I'll be sure to recommend it to friends. Looking at all her different art on the walls, so much inspiration, there would be something for everybody.

Everything was supplied, the paints and brushes were fantastic, the paint just glided on. I thought it was great value for money.

Thanks again Kylie x

Painting class review by Lisa Hoefnagels - Sydney

Megan Feb 2022

Loved this course, it was totally worth the money & there's so many great ideas & projects to do with a new module sent every week for the duration of the course, really looked forward to seeing what there was to do next. It is more for families with younger kids but anyone could do it. Best part is being able to do it all in your own time. Would highly recommend especially if you have littlies.

We did this paint and sip class as our work Xmas party. It was such a beautiful venue overlooking Pittwater to Scotland Island. Kylie the artist was very friendly and helpful. She had a great music playlist, which made a fun atmosphere. Our whole team enjoyed the night, and would highly recommend this class to anyone. It was also very reasonably priced and get yo take home a piece of you own artwork. Thanks Kylie.

My son and daughter have now been to two of Kylie's paint classes and have already asked when the next one is. They absolutely loved it. Kylie has such a fun way of bringing the joy to painting and they were so proud to bring their artwork home to hang on their walls.

What a wonderful experience we had last night for a girls night out at Kylie’s boat shed paint and sip class.
The studio with water views is the perfect backdrop for the creative spirit to flow helped by a drop or too of vino!
Kylie is warm, inviting, creative and inspirational.
I even surprised myself with painting something that resembled hydrangeas with a little bit of help!
Thank you Kylie for a fun night
Highly recommend

Kind regards


Kelly Lewis Nov 2021

Bron Calcraft Nov 2021

Loved this experience! Such a beautiful venue and Kylie is warm and professional, all in one. Highly recommend this to anyone who seeks a fun, enlightening and enriching experience - no prior painting experience required, but you’ll be very surprised by what you come up with - if you give yourself half a chance!

Kylie was really friendly and engaging with the kids. They were all so impressed at what they were able to achieve. Beautiful venue to paint in too.

Mary Edwards Nov 2021

Oh what a great experience. Not only was Kylie really lovely and a great teacher, the whole venue and vibe are amazing. Honestly couldn’t have picked a nicer venue for a birthday. We sat in the studio and enjoyed the class and wine, with direct access to water views.
We really enjoyed it.

We had a fabulous evening with Kylie. Highly recommend ClassBento. Kylie is very experienced & taught us step by step how to create our own master pieces! All the art was supplied. The setting couldn’t be more beautiful on lovely Pittwater. The six of us had an amazing & fun night.

Superb creative activity to partake in and very well run in a beautiful serene environment.

Thanks Kylie for a really fun night, I was actually surprised at how easy it was to paint something that looks ok as I’m definitely not an artist. Lovely venue, would definitely recommend to others wanting a fun night out

I cannot say enough nice things about this class. My daughter had an absolute ball and Kylie was an excellent teacher. She gave instructions that were easy to follow, was helpful and encouraging and had a fantastic music playlist. It was the perfect way to end a week of lockdown. Thanks so much!

Nyree Parkin Jul 2021

After admiring Kylies art over the past 18mths, the girls were excited to paint with her through her online zoom class today. What a great idea. The instructions were easy to follow and the choice of music during the class was great. Such a positive painting experience. Thank you.

Deanne Vassallo Jul 2021

Kylie was engaging and helpful all the way through. The kids could interact as much as they wanted to and my child loved the sing-a-long too. Was a great positive activity for a rainy lockdown day. I think she learned some new techniques too. Thank you Kylie.

Jo Fuhrmann Jul 2021

Kids had a great time, loved the tunes and were really happy with their final product! A great activity to break up lockdown

Enjoyed a really lovely relaxing evening at the painting class. Actually created a painting that I want to hang which I wasn’t expecting! Kylie was a great host, great music, venue. Will definitely go again but hopefully on a summers evening so we can enjoy the view!

A wonderful night, thank you Kylie. I knew I’d enjoy spending time with friends but was really surprised with how much I enjoyed the painting. All the little details like music, candles and the beautiful relaxed setting made it such an effortless and refreshing night out!

Gemma Sim Jun 2021

We had a wonderful evening. Such a lovely way to spend time with friends. Kylie was warm and welcoming. Thanks Kylie

Isabel Chan Jun 2021

You can’t go past this experience Sign up!

Upon arriving at the studio we were welcomed by the lovely Kylie, Zia, the gorgeous studio pup and blown away by the spectacular Bayview water view.

As we settled in with our bubbles, we started discussing with Kylie the construct of the painting and the next 3 hours just flowed. The music in the studio never stopped nor did the chatter, laughter and cuddles from Zia.

Kylie provided us a few options and we ended up combining a couple of her artwork into one. She was wonderful in listening to our suggestions and we improvised to personalise the artwork. We mixed and created new colours and she was ever so accommodating with our ideas as well as having absolutely all the tools there for us ready when we need them.

Kylie also has a super positive and energetic personality. My girlfriend and I felt that we had a well-being reawakening after spending the morning with Kylie and is already planning family activities next with Kylie.

Not to worry if you’re not particularly artistic, Kylie can cater for the needs of the different experiences! Just sign up and be prepared to enjoy!

Stuart Smithies Jun 2021

we all had such a great time, Kylie came and set it all up in the gym tranforming it and adding in wow factor when our clients turned up, the painting she choose was great everyone to follow along to and finish up with painting that they are happy to put up in their homes. I would def recommend Kylie coming to your workplace and taking everyone through a paint and sip class!

Jessica Drennan Jun 2021

We had a wonderful class with the lovely Kylie in an amazing location. Kylie was super accommodating to our needs (we are a design team who were on an immersion day and wanted a fashion focused painting) and our team left feeling very inspired.
Cannot recommend this class enough, Thanks Kylie!

Helle Olsen May 2021

We had such a great night with Kylie, who guided us through the art of painting. Who would have thought that it could be that hard to put a brush to a canvas. Thank you Kylie for a well organized night of sip and paint.

Ainsley Cullen May 2021

I am a social worker and am always looking for new and fun activities for my special needs client. Kylie was beautifully empathetic and supportive.

We both had so much fun creating art in such a tranquil setting by the water. We will definitely be returning and I will spread to word to friends and colleagues.

Cherie Maxwell-Gulli May 2021

Kylie was an amazing addition to my daughter’s 8th birthday party. She went above and beyond all my expectations. She ran a class for 12 children ranging in ages from 5-12 with complete ease. She's organised, helpful, punctual and obviously loves what she does.
I highly recommend her 10/10!

Angela Liu May 2021

We had a beautiful Mother’s Day session spent painting in Kylie’s beautiful, vibrant and welcoming seaside studio. Kylie is a truly wonderful and gentle teacher with a passion for teaching and creating. All the mum’s and grandma’s went home being awed and inspired by their creations. I cannot recommend this class highly enough and cannot wait to go back!

Thea Pym May 2021

It was an absolute delight to spend the afternoon with Kylie – the scenery was to absolutely beautiful, her careful instruction and encouragement to help to create our “masterpieces” was provided with just the right balance of humor and nurture, and it was all topped off with really good company. All in all, we had such a wonderful time, spending Mother’s Day doing something different (al- be-it discovering I may not be an artist, but doing it in a fun way) – it was just the right balance of art, bubbles, laughs and the feeling of accomplishment in a really warm and intimate setting.

Tim Reid May 2021

Set against the most beautiful waterfront backdrop Kylie is extremely welcoming, patient and will help you bring your first masterpiece to life. Couldn't be happier with the class and our entire family loved it! If available be sure to book, you won't regret it.

Kristina Hoo May 2021

The experience we had as a group for Mother’s Day was simply amazing. Kylie is an excellent teacher - guiding us through the journey and helping us unleash our own unique and creative sides through this artistic experience. The studio was strategically located with such in a picturesque view that was absolutely breathtaking! Thanks Kylie!

Nora Xu May 2021

Kylies’s house is beautiful with amazing view. She is very patient and a very good teacher. I can’t believe I can paint! Will think to go back again with kids.

Leticia Demartini Apr 2021

My friend and I had an amazing and relaxing time at Kylie’s Bayview Painting Studio! Kylie is a great teacher and her Studio is very welcoming! I am proud of my first paint attempt and enjoyed every single minute of this experience!
