Our kids loved this and are super keen to return. They really enjoyed the opportunity to sculpt with clay. In addition to the art, the kids participated in a disco and investigated uv lights.

We liked the ambience and the creativity it brought in us. Thank you so much.

Genevieve Jul 2024


I went with some friends and absolutely loved the whole night.
Ali who took out class was so fun and engaging I can not praise her enough.
I have no artistic ability but really enjoyed painting with the guild of ali and the cocktails we made were delicious!

Stacey Smith Jul 2024


Had the best time at this class and highly recommend. We took our staff for a social event and everyone really enjoyed themselves. The teachers were super helpful and encouraging and although non of us had painting experience we all created something we were proud of. Great value for money.

Renee Healey Jul 2024


Loved the class. Was a paint what you would like to type of class. Paint and sip in the dark.
Instructor was great and bubbly, very helpful. Limited paint colours though.

Kate Jul 2024


This was my first paint and sip class and I honestly wasn't expecting it to be so much fun! There was a surprise experience at the end, the cocktails were so delicious and easy to make, the host really brought the energy and had all these fun facts throughout the night - I'm already planning my next visit!

Anna Kennedy Jul 2024


Great class with fun vibes. The teachers were really helpful and created a relaxed and really enjoyable space to create our paintings

Abbey Xie Jul 2024


nice instructor, good atmosphere. We love it. Very inspring and encouraging. I wish the length of the course can be 30 min longer so we can polish the details.

Thanks so much

Melissa Garrasi Jul 2024


The shake, sip and paint class was so much fun! Ali was very knowledgeable and made the experience enjoyable.
The cocktails were delicious and the evening was well paced. Our group had so much fun that the time flew!

Laura Mordaunt Jul 2024


A really fun night, the teachers were amazing and the vibe was so fun! Will definitely go back, it was a great date night but would be ideal for a group night out too!

Michelle Ryan Jul 2024


Just a get together with new friends I’ve met since arriving in Australia, teacher was very fun and informative, venue was easy get to and well layed out with all materials, class was maybe a little bit pricey but that said I would go again was a very fun evening and was nice that we got to paint something of our choice

Emma Cook Jul 2024


My 5 year old daughter loved this class. She already wants to go again. Great option for school holiday fun.

Emma Binks Jul 2024


The location was very convenient and easy to park. Both teachers were helpful and engaging and timed the event well. All the materials were provided and it was a a great activity to do with my 17 year old.

Paige Carlson Jul 2024


Team had so much fun! Everyone was very impressed with the set up and the teacher

Ece Zini Jul 2024


It was really fun to be with you. 2, 6 hours gone like 15 min. Thanks for the night.

Joanna Martin Jun 2024


We came to celebrate our five year wedding anniversary, it was such an awesome experience, the teachers were fantastic, I can’t wait to come again! Such a great time!

Painting class review by Joanna Martin - Melbourne

Matthew Salvado Jun 2024


Had so much fun! The host was very lovely and helpful. Will definitely be back again!

Sophie Britton Jun 2024


It was so nice to go out and do something different! Paint your partner was fun and absorbing and silly at the same time. We were given some really helpful tips, and now even the less artistic of the two of us is keen to pick up a paintbrush again. It was the second event I’ve done in Port Melbourne and both have been brilliant!

Valentina Jun 2024


Was okay but been to many painting before (at paint and Picasso) which they do 3hours..
Much better!
I won’t go back to paint for fun way to fast I felt I was more rushing than not enjoying my time!!! Felt more I was at work and couldn’t enjoy way to rushy and no I won’t be coming back my partner felt the same way and is not really what we were expecting a run rush to get kicked out while we were trying to finish the little details, 2.5 hours is definitely not enough time.

Ashlee Linck Jun 2024


A fantastic afternoon. Our host was incredible and the vibe was fab. Highly recommend for kids and adults.

Romye Racciatti Jun 2024


Our teacher was very friendly and enthusiastic. She engaged with everyone in the class and made it very light hearted. There were heaters in the room which was great on a cold winters night!
I wasn’t that keen on the paint colors but was still happy with the end result.
The first cocktail was very good but not so sure about the second. It was fun making them though.
2 cocktails and 2 paintings was excellent value for money however felt a bit rushed.
Overall I would definitely recommend this class with a group of friends.

Jamieson May Jun 2024


Lily the Jellyfish girl was very engaging and great with everyone! She explained all the ways to paint really well! We felt very welcomed and comfortable in this class, also was very fun! Great atmosphere! She also helped me fix my painting multiple times hahaha!

Jacquie Kertes Jun 2024


My daughter and I had a lovely time. This was a Christmas gift from her to me.
We had fun playing with clay - initially making a leaf inspired creation and then letting our imagination take us to ear-rings, gum nuts and a snake! A lot of fun and great teachers. Can highly recommend for an afternoon out. Don't forget the wine and nibbles!

We did the ‘paint your partner’ class with Mel and it was amazing. It was a small class of only two couples (one didn’t show up) and it was a really fun atmosphere, in large part thanks to Mel and her instruction. We all had a ball and can’t wait to go back!

i prefer the classes you used to run whereby we were guided by the teacher tp paint something step by step.

Teacher's response

Thanks for your feedback. Paint for Fun has evolved to encourage more creativity and self-expression, while still providing guidance and inspiration. We’re sorry our methods didn’t meet your expectations, and we appreciate your input as we strive to improve.

Janice Hodgart Jun 2024


It was something different. It didn’t matter that I can’t draw and was made very comfortable. The fact it was byo made it very good value as all you paid for was the class! And it went really quickly. Time flies when you’re having fun!!

Such a fun class!! The music was great. We got to look at the other class’ art for inspiration. Champagne and two cocktails certainly helped with the artistic process! Great value and would recommend to a friend.

Megan Holzer Jun 2024


We have a quarterly fun activity for my team at work and this was a perfect fit for us all to connect and have such a great time. So much fun and a lasting memory of the night with the canvases.

Larissa Ratten Jun 2024


Fantastic class! Mel was very up beat and attentative. The venue was small but intimate and well stocked.

It was a but out of the usual for my friends, but I've got nothing but brilliant feedback and a new admiration for their painting skills afterwards.

What a great Christmas gift that was enjoyed today with my husband. Melissa our instructor welcomed us warmly and continued to impress us throughout the four hour class. She managed our time well with prompts and was always available to guide or advise if wanted. I’d definitely recommend this as a great gift idea or fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Rachael Paparoulas Jun 2024


So much fun had a lovely afternoon with friends, the teacher also was a gem. Very helpful to those needing further assistance or resources!

The studio was easy to locate and I was greeted by Debbie. She quickly made me feel comfortable and I started my very first painting workshop in no time. All the materials were provided, and coffee was also available. Debbie was always ready to give helpful advice and share kind words for encouragement! The workshop gives you the freedom to explore and test your creativity. I had a great experience and found it very therapeutic.

Hannah Chin May 2024

First time at a paint & sip with a friend and I loved it! Teacher was lovely and helpful with tips through out the night, the atmosphere was wonderful! We were allowed creative freedom to paint whatever we like and choose songs to listen to as well. All materials were provided and definitely worth the money, I will definitely come back soon!

Isabelle Laverdure May 2024


We had such a fun time!

If you’re looking for a creative and fun night out I highly recommend.

My friend and I are traveling and wanted to do something creative. Paint for fun was a perfect outlet for that. We had all the materials and space that we needed and found it excellent value for money. Debbie was friendly and welcoming, answering any questions that we had. Thank you for having us, we will be back!

Rhiannon Bennett May 2024


Such an incredible experience! The teachers were so good at explaining each step and kept us at a good pace so the time flew by! My partner was nervous going into this because he’s not confidence with arts and crafts, but even he loved it and was so proud of his painting!

Absolutely amazing!! It was for my friends birthday and everyone had a fantastic time!
The teachers guided us to create our works of arts

Highly recommend!!

Lisa Ryland May 2024


What a great way to spend an afternoon! I laughed nearly all the way through at my own ineptitude and we both enjoyed it immensely. The staff were lovely, encouraging and kind. One of us forgot our phone and you do need one. The staff efficiently printed a picture and we avoided feeling foolish. Thank you!

A fun girls night out! The teacher kept us on track and they were both super encouraging which was lovely. The materials were great and I learnt how to blend better with traditional paints as I'm a digital artist. Very good value for 2 and a half hours. Lots of photo opportunities which is wonderful for our memories thank you.

Billie-Odelle Gore Apr 2024


We had a lot of fun. Great experience for all budding artists with or without experience.

Lina Chene Apr 2024


This was my 3rd "paint and sip" experience, but the 1st one in the dark! It was a very cool and fun one to do. I loved the music selection. There were heaps of examples to get inspiration from. It was nice to be able to choose what to paint. Paula (the teacher) was absolutely lovely, and provided everything that was needed for the activity. I 100% recommend!

Joyce Chiu Apr 2024


We showed up a little late to the class on Friday night, and our teacher, Lily, was very helpful in catching us up so that the night was fun and not stressful at all! All the materials were prepared, there was little effort required from us, which allowed us to just enjoy the night and paint away! We loved Lily’s instructions in how to measure out the spacing to paint portrait features, without the instructions, our portraits would have looked even more alien than they did (we are amateurs that have never held a paint brush) thanks Lily!

Akshat Arora Apr 2024


Amazing experience. Went there with my partner and we had a blast. We’re both terrible painters and yet we had so much fun. I can’t wait to do it again
The materials provided were high quality, we painted each other’s faces and the paint didn’t cause any irritation to the skin. The neon lights made everything so bright and beautiful.

Tess Ward Apr 2024


The staff were amazing, so helpful and made for a great night! Great that you got to choose what to paint, made for a great night out with friends!

It was a great class, I was very relaxed and enjoyed it all and seeing the other people who participated in the class made as well, Ali was very good with the instructions and was willing to help if needed, I enjoyed using a matirial I haven't used in years and would deffently come back and do it again.
Thank you paint for fun team

Nishita Choudhury Apr 2024


Really enjoyable! Great materials, great colours, would definitely recommend, and I'm keen to do it again!

Sunayana Satish Addanki Apr 2024


Ali was super helpful and lovely! I dint think I’d like the lack of direction but the freedoms to paint what you want was lovely! The environment was amazing and I loved it! I will definitely do it again :)

The quality of the paint was amazing!

Baoyu Charissa Lee Apr 2024


I had booked this occasion to spend time with my friend where we could do something simple and still have time to catch up.

Tatiana was our teacher, she was fun and lovely as she chatted with everyone. Her instructions were easy to follow and she guided us the different techniques if we needed more assistance.

Jenny Walker Apr 2024


Everything was good, teacher very nice, I would like a bit more of a design to follow being new to painting

Teacher's response

Hi Jenny, thanks you for your feedback. We will make sure to paint along a specific example for people t0 follow moving forward.

Dhanushree Patel Apr 2024


Great vibe, good music, helpful examples of paintings and handy tips from the instructor. Really enjoyed our time!

Tanjin Ashraf Apr 2024


The class was so much fun! Such an awesome mix of learning how to make cocktails (a strawberry mojito and another gin-based drink), getting Prosecco upon entry, and getting time to paint! The teachers were amazing and super friendly. Just one thing, we weren't aware that the paint class was a freestyle class, it would have been great to have some explicit instructions, especially as rookie painters.

Michelle Minotto Apr 2024


I surprised my partner for his birthday with tickets to this, and we both LOVED it With approx 1/4 of a pinkie worth of creativity between us (all in his) - our paintings turned out surprisingly ok! We were guided through the process step by step, and had a LOT of support throughout lol. Coupled with wine, food, an amazing playlist for background noise - the whole experience was so good

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

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.

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.

Mercedes Rajpaul Mar 2024

Totally good and recommend

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!
