Why you should come to our classes

It is the middle of the week, you’re working away, you’ve got your sights on the weekend, but it seems so far off in the distance. What you need is a mid-week boost, a pick-me-up. Well, let’s give you a boost! Take off two hours on a weeknight and come to one of our relaxing painting classes, shift your attention off your work, life problems and focus just on the creation of art.

It is a great escape that leaves your batteries recharged and ready to dive back into the trenches and get the week done.

You need not worry if you’re not a professionally trained artist or an artist at all! Everyone is welcome to our classes and even if it is your first time picking up a brush it will still be therapeutic and you’ll have a great time.

Reviews for Life With Paint Canberra

I had a fantastic time today.

Our teacher was so good, explained everything perfectly. Gave us tips and tricks.

The venue was particularly good also, the light was perfect.

Julie, if you teach another class would you let me know please, because I’d love to participate. I’m so proud of my painting, not like my last one that ended up in the bin outside the venue.

Thank you again for hosting a brilliant Mother’s Day afternoon.

We couldn’t have had a better experience!! From calling and speaking with Frankl to see if a last minute private class could be arranged (7 hours notice!!) To Vee teaching us what to do and helping us create our paintings, they helped us have an awesome anniversary date night in!!! Vee even helped us modify the painting to where they could hang side by side!! Thank you guys!!!!

Mallie Tyalor, Canberra

A fantastic experience. I haven’t painted since high school so was a bit nervous about what my end painitng might look like. But our artist was patient and very good at showing us then checking to make sure we were doing ok.

Thanks for the fun afternoon and the chance to challenge myself way out of my comfort zone.

My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves! We will definitely be doing this again ! Highly recommend!

Gina Fogwell, Canberra

I decided to book this just to ‘do something different’ and escape the house for a while. Boy am I glad I did!

It was the most wonderful and relaxing afternoon I’ve had in a long time. I am not artistic AT ALL and felt so proud of my masterpiece. Thank you so much! I will be back again many times!

Life With Paint Classes in Canberra

Established in 1913 after Australia gained its independence in 1901, Canberra was founded as the capital city of the new, free nation of Australia. Of course, the Canberra region had been lived in for thousands of years prior. European exploration and settlement in the Canberra area began as early as 1820, with this region attracting some of the first colonial expeditions to the continent.

Today, Canberra offers a diverse range of cultures, businesses, educational opportunities, and service industries. The city has also experienced a booming tourism industry thanks in part to its pleasant climate, a bustling arts scene, friendly locals, and a fair amount of cultural diversity. Visitors to Canberra can enjoy the Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial, Lake Burley Griffin, the National Gallery of Australia, the Questacon National Science and Technology Center, the National Museum of Australia, and the verdant Australian National Botanic Gardens.

An Arts Scene Alive and Well in Canberra

Canberra is known for its art scene. The National Gallery of Australia is one of the best-ranked art galleries, not just in Australia but on a global scale too. Visitors to the gallery can enjoy collections that feature Jackson Pollack and Sidney Nolan. The gallery also offers artwork by the indigenous Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

However, a fancy art gallery is not the only way to experience the arts in Canberra. The city is also known for its street shows, festivals, bazaars, community art events, and “hole in the wall” art galleries. Just a walk across Canberra’s historic downtown district will leave one mystified and amazed by the diversity of the arts in Australia’s capital city.

Diving Into the Arts in Canberra

Imagine setting up an easel and canvas in front of the Old Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial, the National Carillon, the National Gallery of Australia, or the National Library of Australia and actually making a painting of those fantastic Canberra landmarks? Thanks to Life With Paint, you can do just that!

Life With Paint offers social painting classes for Canberra locals and visitors alike. Just check out our events page to find a class that works best for you.
