The definition of “Sip and Paint” is exactly how the name implies; sipping (enjoying your favourite drink or wine) while painting your favourite picture or allocated image of choice. This social art activity is a new common fun activity in Lagos that could be an alternative to going to a movie with friends or those regular outings
1. Be Relaxed!
The first rule to enjoying a sip and paint session is to feel relaxed! It’s absolutely normal to feel a bit nervous about something that is new and that you don’t have any experience with. Especially with the idea of making a painting which is known to be done by extremely skillful people. But just to let you know; the fun part of a paint and sip session is when you are inexperienced. You get to create something you never imagined you can create with the guidance of the art instructor.
Let go of any hesitations and just let the colours flow. Enjoy the music while you dance with your brushstrokes.
2. No Skills Required
A big difference between an art class and our sip and paint session is the fact that this session is not an art class! No one is allowed to judge anybody and no grades are going to be given out. If you have the talent then great for you, otherwise, just let go of your anxiety and simply start painting.
No prior skills required, nothing is regarded as mistakes, just paint & have fun! There are no mistakes in Art!!!
On the other hand, if you have a thing for wanting to be the best, you probably should take it easy on that. Just so you could be patient with yourself and embrace on what you’re capable of.
3. Easy does it
Just as you used to paint in your Primary School, a sip and paint session is as easy as A,B,C. Of course we won’t leave you to figure it out all by yourself and expect you to just get painting without any guidance. We have experienced tutors who are always ready to guide you as you paint away with your other art-buddies. Just follow the doable easy steps and in no time, you’d be surprised that you’d actually be able to discover some hidden talent within you.
Every paint session is an opportunity to socialize and meet great people. Our Sip and Paint sessions are attended by many curious and adventurous persons like yourself. This is the perfect time for you to meet a group of people that has the same interest as you do. Just as the saying goes, ‘great minds think alike’. Exchange opinions and explore new ideas about your background and tastes in art. Make jokes, giggles and laugh out loud, dance to soft music rhythm, and paint the evening away. With a good vibe, comes a great painting with a wonderful memory.
5. Have fun!
It is natural that when we try our best to focus on the painting steps, we tend to forget about everything else. Whenever you realise the opportunity, remind yourself to have fun! ‘Sip and paint’ is an activity that we try to prioritise on the experience of painting together, not only the techniques and materials. If you are still not able to picture what the session is like, please drop by and witness our interior yourself. It’ll be more than easy for you to join the paint-party mood we got going.
