Kids said they had a great time!

They proudly showed off their creations from the day.

Friendly, laid back teacher was comfortable with kids around.

Venue was easy to find with good street parking.

Sarah Song Apr 2024


My friend and I were just having a hangout and I thought why not try this out, we went in and the teacher was super friendly giving ideas and helping people out. The glow in the dark experience was astonishing and our paintings looked so stunning!

Churchill Lee Mar 2024


Our teacher, Mel, is very approachable and really helped us paint better. I would not expect to be able to paint a portrait of my partner in 2 hours!

Elly Watkins Mar 2024


It was a really fun class. Something a bit different to a normal art class. All the materials were provided and our teacher Paula gave us some great tips and tricks. I would recommend the class to everyone.

Mel Stewart Mar 2024


We had the best night, would highly recommend to anyone!
Staff were super friendly and encouraging

Amy Perera Mar 2024


Great that you're able to paint your own content and the teachers were lovely :) Would do this again!

Nick Simmonds Mar 2024


I bought this for my girlfriend as a birthday present. Melissa was fantastic and very helpful. The venue was in a really good location. It would've been nice to have toilets accessible without walking through another class. Materials provided were great, but a larger pallet board would've helped a lot. I learnt a lot about painting. The class was very good value for money. I liked the whole duration of the class because it got me out of my comfort zone. I highly recommend the class

Nicholas Vayenas Mar 2024


Mel is nice and gave good instructions and tips for painting partners
Would definitely recommend it to others

Painting class review by Nicholas Vayenas - Melbourne

Tina Bourne Mar 2024


How good is painting in the dark with glowing colours all while enjoying a glass of wine! You have to find out for yourself :) We had such a great time! It's a great night out for just a couple of people or as a larger group (there were six of us). The teacher was super friendly and helpful and the vibes of the entire group were great! The location is easy to find and the set up was good. We will definitely be back!

Julianne Morris Mar 2024


Lilly was amazing! She made everything easy and fun. Although it was a free paint vs being taught what to paint, it was a great night seeing everyone’s creations and with so much inspiration around the room, it was easy to get started.
We attended for my partner’s birthday as a bit of midweek fun and it couldn’t have been better.

Ben Vo Mar 2024


Lily was amazing! A great time especially for a newbie like me. Highly recommended for a night out.

First timer. Even though i was there as a support worker. I saw that everything was set up nicely just perfect for a small sized group. The teachers were really helpful and provided help/assist when needed. They provided all the things you need for that class and it was byo (bonus!)

Noreen Wright Mar 2024


My husband and I went to the couples painting night for something different to do - and it sure was! It was really fun, we had many laughs during the evening. They had everything you need ready to go and the instructions were great easy to follow. We were nervous our pictures would be terrible, but we were pleasantly surprised by the outcome under excellent guidance. Now we have more laughs looking at our portraits at home! We highly recommend.

Wonderful workshop! The class was more of a party atmosphere than I was prepared for - I think it would have been better if I went with friends and I'm keen to go back for a birthday or special occasion in the future!

Justin Tongson Feb 2024


It's a truly special feeling having a portrait of your face made by your partner! We love our masterpieces to bits

Shannen Fleming Feb 2024


We took part in the class as a valentines activity! Myself and my partner had a great time and laughed the whole time! 100% would recommend!

Evan Morgan Feb 2024


I liked the session, the teacher was good and kept everything moving at a fast pace. The focus on encouragement was effective at creating a permissive free space to try something we were not skilled in. The teachers were not always in sync in terms of what was being visually displayed and what was being verbally described. This wasn't a huge problem, and it did create a fun playful vibe. The cocktails were high quality premixed cans, served well in chilled glasses with ice

James Tohme Feb 2024


I felt, given how great the session went, that the program itself was priced too low! It was amazing, the teachers there provided support for my friends and I in terms of where to find things such as the sink for replacing pain water, extra paint incase some ran out, and gave accurate pricing for the canvases given.

Even though I myself am not and artistic person, they were very supportive of people with all levels of skill, and with that level of care for its customers, I was able to paint this image of my cat. It was wonderful painting there for Valentine's Day, not to mention how fun it was for my friends and I, I'd gladly do it again!

Megan Davison Feb 2024


My girls enjoyed the session. They felt supported and were delighted to know that the teacher was also autistic.

Yvonne Harris Feb 2024


My sister (from Perth) and I (from Brisbane) had a little reunion in Melbourne and attended an open workshop in the Port Melbourne studio. Debbie was very welcoming and the atmosphere was very relaxed and we had a wonderful day painting together. We did find the website blurb a bit confusing because we did expect a bit of help and guidance in the painting department as we are very much beginners. However Debbie was able to help a little here and there and lots of paint and materials were at our fingertips. Our paintings turned out beautifully! And as a bonus we found the experience very reasonably priced. We left extremely happy and really enjoyed our time there. ️ We even had a yummy espresso martini ️

Katie Moss Feb 2024


Such a fun and relaxing way to spend the afternoon.

Would have been nice if it was a guided session where we all drew the same thing!

Ying Hu Feb 2024


My partner and I went there for our weekend activities, it was a super fun and unique experience to paint under dark, the special lighting makes the colours stand out. The staffs are friendly and patient to guide you through the drawing process. Definitely recommended for couple or group activities

Dunia Almalki Jan 2024


Class was good but would be nice to have a step by step guide in painting a particular painting instead of freestyle.

Lots and lots of fun ! Highly recommend as a fun activity for date night / catching up with friends

Teacher's response

Thank you for the recommendation Hannah Visit us again soon!

Elisa Mena Maldonado Jan 2024


I liked very much the session, but I reckon we all could have used some more time. The session was a bit rushy and it made it complex to follow.
I had taken my parents who were visiting and do not speak english after sending an email to ask if this was not going to be a problem or not. Since that question was not addressed, I assumed it was not a problem. Also, the instructor mentioned she didn't know about the email.
I had to translate the instructions and at the same time focus on my task.
I think it'd have been great to have a printed set of instructions (as the students of the room next to us had one), so they could revisit them when needed.
Also, we were requested to leave our work to walk around the place and visit students in other rooms. We were already in a rush and we could've used this time to try and catch up.
Overall my family and I enjoyed the experience, but it would've been great if we had more time and had printed instructios.

Teacher's response

We appreciate the feedback Elisa. We apologize if there was a miscommunication regarding your parents' language limitations. We strive to accommodate all our participants, and it seems there was a little gap in this case. We will make sure to address this issue in the future to ensure a smoother experience for everyone. Nevertheless, we're still happy that overall your family had a great time. Thank you very much!

Greig Macca Jan 2024


The team are so patient, supportive, patient, encouraging, patient, helpful and patient. A fun day out

Ena Liew Jan 2024

Dainslie Cairns Dec 2023


Such a fun and playful experience! The Blochaus Crew had a blast celebrating our holiday party there! The staff were super accommodating, full of tips and tricks so we could create some pretty trippy paintings to hang at work! I also love the fact that you can order food in for everyone, that was such a huge pressure taken off to organise! Can't wait to try some other classes in the future!

Kalani Wijeratne Dec 2023


Both teachers were very informative and help us with tips and tricks. They provided all the material we needed to paint. We really liked the venue. They had all we needed prepped and ready to go would have been even better if we could keep the reference photo side by side. The experience was really wotrth for the ammount we paid. will highly recommend i this to my other friends for sure.

Esther Behrens Dec 2023


Was a fantastic experience, we’ve been to a few paint and sips before but this was the best. The teacher was friendly, attentive, helpful and really provided direction when needed! It was a friendly environment with a good setup - bathroom, cups, easy access to more paint, tools etc. I’ve already recommended this class to a few friends and would love to come back myself! It’s the first time I’ve left with a painting I felt somewhat proud of. Thank you for proving a fun, great paint and sip experience!

Really fun class, great atmosphere and teachers. It's cool looking at everyone else's art in the class.

Sophie Britton Oct 2023


This class deserves a standing ovation. My whole crew commented on what a fantastic night they'd had, creative or not, they loved every minute of it. I found it the perfect way to bring a bunch of people together who didn't know each other previously, which really took the stress out of my 40'th birthday party. The teacher was a gem, she allowed generous time for people to meet, drink and mingle while she face painted, but we still had a heap of time for the actual painting. It was the perfect length. I thoroughly recommend it.

Ainsley Keenan Oct 2023


Had Ollie for our teacher and they were such a fantastic teacher! They were so encouraging and excited about what everyone was making! The materials were all provided and easy to ask for more if we ran out of clay! I was able to make three different pieces (and realistically could have made one more) and I love them all! Had a fantastic time and would love to go again for a different class! Highly recommend to go with a friend and having a relaxing and enjoyable afternoon!
