Today I’m going to talk about painting classes with The Paint Republic. My husband and I were invited to one of the painting classes held by The Paint Republic. I don’t think I ever talked about this before, but I’ve painted as a hobby in the past. I stopped for lack of actual talent, much to the delight of the family (who were supposed to say I’m great when they were receiving one of my masterpieces, all were tucked away from sight though). Anyway, I was eager to try painting again and this time actually learning how to paint (I wasn’t that bothered about it before).
These are our pieces of art, displayed in our spare bedroom. We’ve made fun of how they turned out, but after looking at them for a couple of days, we thought they are actually good enough to display. I think they look great, colourful, both similar and different.
Now lets talk about the classes. The Paint Republic have events for people who want to unleash their creativity and have fun at the same time. The ticket covers the price of the event, including all the materials. Drinks and food can be ordered from the location the event is held at. We’ve been to The Baltic Social, a lovely place with friendly staff and good prices.
They have classes all over UK, in Liverpool, London, Chester, North Wales, in Shropshire and Bath.
We picked our seats, the music was on and we’ve started painting. On display is a finished painting, so we can see what we are going to paint. I have to admit I though it’s just a model because it couldn’t be possible to paint something so complicated in only 2 hours. Well, as you saw from the first picture, we did. The painting is inspired by the William Morris wallpapers.
The Paint Republic hosts private events, for fundrasing, corporate events or private Hen and birthday party celebrations.
We’ve started to paint with step-by-step guide from a professional artist. These are a few steps. It was fun and relaxing. We’ve got lots of encouragement and we both enjoyed it a lot.
I was expecting my husband to take a lot of pictures of me, but we were both so engaged in painting that we didn’t think of taking more pictures.
As you can see, I was really involved in painting and I managed to cover myself in colour. It’s good we put the cute purple aprons on.
It was so much fun. I would love to try it again, they have new paintings and that is fab, because it means it can be done again, learn more and add new paintings on what it will be our private gallery.
