This week we take our inspiration from Sean Baker’s ‘The Florida Project’. Director of photography - Alexis Zabe, works with bright colours and exaggerated scales to create a dreamy and etherial quality that portrays a child’s saturated and epic view of the world.

As ever we have a bring your own bottle policy. So, grab a tinny and park yourself down for a fun night of painting and great chat!

We encourage people to bring their own materials. We all have different personal tastes in terms of quality and method when it comes to painting. There is no one size fits all! It's important you work with a brand and material you are comfortable with. If you need any guidance on purchasing materials, and what is best for you please feel free to send us a message through our facebook page (link at bottom of page).

However , we also realise that this is an introduction to painting for many people so these can be provided.

Learning to draw from film stills is an amazing skill to develop. Increasingly, more and more artists work from photographs. Film stills give you access to quality formatted photography where every aspect of the image has been considered. It is a fascinating method of learning the technical devices of painting and drawing.
