There are Picassos, people who can paint well and there’s me. Languishing at the bottom of the painting ladder with only babies for company. One baby sat on paint and then a canvas and it was still better than my painting.  But I am a curious cat and will try any new experience that comes my way. So one Saturday, I decided to indulge in some painting with a company called Paint Party. Run by two ladies, this experience is about unleashing your talent (if you’ve any) on a canvas while you sip on some refreshing drinks and eat some food, while dropping crumbs everywhere. Okay, maybe that was only me.

The Space

Paint Parties usually take place in locations around the city but most of them are restaurants and they’ve  an area reserved for these parties. Parties is a bit of a misnomer in this case because the session I went for had people who were struggling so much with getting the painting right that we barely managed crack a smile. What kind of parties do these people go to? There are usually places for 10-12 people with an easel, canvas, paints and brushes already provided.

The Experience

The good thing is you already have everything ready to go except any talent which unfortunately, you’ve to carry yourself. This was my undoing. Anyway, we had figures in our painting and the guys who run this knew that people usually struggle with that so they had an outline drawn for us. I still sucked, but that’s entirely to do with me. They do put out a blob/dot/squirt of the colours you will need and you can ask for as much as you want. They keep different brushes handy as well in case you feel like a particular bristle is what is holding you back. They teach a couple of techniques like we were taught about knives but I could cause injury to the eyes with just my art so I didn’t find this useful. But they teach you to paint with it.

Overall, this was a fun experience albeit I did leave feeling rather inadequate and slightly bored as well.
