Looking for a fun filled Tuesday night in Sydney? Join Ceevio Art at Paddo RSL for Sydney's "next level" paint and sip experience! And your first drink is 'on the house' when you arrive! Every ticket to our Tuesday night classes includes a complimentary beer, wine or soft drink from the Paddo RSL bar.

Never painted before? No problem! Your art coach, Chris, is an experienced portrait and landscape artist, and he will guide you, step-by-step, showing you how to paint the evening's class picture - sharing with you the tips and secrets to painting a picture that you might even be be proud to show off, even if you've never painted anything before in your entire life!

Still sceptical?

Think of it this way: Imagine you've never cooked before. Or maybe you tried cooking a few times, but it didn't go so well, so you've convinced yourself - "I can't cook"!

One day, you go to a cooking class. The head chef running the class is an experienced and highly skilled cook. He gives you all the ingredients that you need for the day's recipe, and you get to use all the professional chef's tools - beautiful knives, pots & pans, a great oven, etc. The head chef guides you, step by step, showing you how to prepare every ingredient, how to chop, slice, marinade - how to cook the recipe from start to finish. He even shows you how to plate up the perfect dish at the end of the session!

Regardless of prior skill or experience, every "I can't cook" person in that class will end up with a great dish! It would be almost impossible NOT to!

As long as your cooking instructor is a good cook - AND a good teacher - your dish is almost guaranteed to come out great!

Painting is no different!

So don't say; "I can't paint". Instead, say; "I don't know HOW to paint", and instantly, you've opened the window of possibility and opportunity.

Chris is your 'head chef' when it comes to paint and sip classes in Sydney. His experience and expertise is what makes "A Paint and a Pinot at Paddo" Sydney's 'next level' paint and sip experience.

We provide you with everything you need on the day - paints, brushes, canvas, easel, apron - all you have to do is bring yourself. Just be ready to have some fun.

At the end of the class, you'll take home your own unique masterpiece -on a 40 x 50 cm canvas. So come and have a crack! You might just surprise yourself at what you are capable of!

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

Tania Batten Sep 2023

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!

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.

Helen Fernandez-Baca Dec 2022

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.

Nicky Joffe Dec 2022

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!

Korawan Thongsri Nov 2022

I enjoyed the class very much, Chris made it very easy to understand the basic of painting. Definitely I wii be back
