Arty party painting & Prosecco evening in Broadstairs : learn to paint in acrylics


About the Course

What is a Paint Party?
We hold our parties at Birchington in Kent, at least once a month or we can come to you at your own venue, for parties, corporate events and fund raising.

Everyone is welcome on our parties, whether single, a couple, as a group of friends. The course is suitable for a party, fund raising event, social & corporate events, hen nights, stag dos or just for a fun night out. See our reviews.
It is a relaxing but fun party. Come and lose yourself in the beauty of painting.
Held at The Botany Bay Hotel almost monthly. Just book using the contact form, then turn up and have fun painting your own master piece. All materials are provided. Follow step by step tuition on live screen, and we will help you when required.
No experience is needed at all, even if you haven't painted since school.

Apart from our own organised Arty Party events at The Botany Bay Hotel, we can setup practically anywhere, inside your home, office, school, church, or hall. Book your own private paint party or join in one of our events today! At Arty Party events you're guaranteed to have a great time out with family, friends, and coworkers! We are a mobile social painting event company, so we can travel to your location and provide you with the full art materials, 2-3 hours of painting instruction, setup and cleanup of your event, and professional photos of your event. We really pride ourselves on our commitment to our customers and provide a very relaxing and non-judgemental atmosphere where guests can be creative, unwind, and socialise.

An Arty Party paint party (or a "social painting event") is an opportunity for you to have a social outing with your friends or on your own (as you will meet new friends) over drinks and while creating a painting from start to finish. People of any skill level can join, your are coming to have fun not to be judged. It's a very laid back atmosphere where Vicki and Beth teach you step by step how to create a painting using a large screen so everyone can see and follow our live lead with a little background music and lots of laughter. You get to take your master piece painting home, have a fun night out and learn a new skill. It's a great way for people to unleash their creativity in a safe and supportive way while enjoying the experience alongside friends and loved ones.

We have been running art courses for many years locally to Broadstairs, Art and Spa weekends in the beautiful Flackley Ash Hotel in Rye and painting holidays in Greece on the island of Lefkas with sailing & water sports included too! And now our new ARTY PARTIES at The Botany Hotel Broadstairs.

Vicki has also proudly had 4 paintings published in the past year in Dunelm, a country wide store and is on the BBC program “Home is Where the Art is” this coming March.

This is a brilliant course for anyone wanting to dip their toes in the wonderful world of water colour painting. Vicki and Beth give confidence and ensure that you take home a "masterpiece" at the end of your very first lesson. The lessons are friendly and fun and very encouraging.

In-person course
- - #6263

These courses are excellent for beginners. They give students confidence and a variety of subjects to paint. The evenings are friendly and fun with great company and good tutors. The courses are run on a five or six week basis and having finished the first you can enroll for the next. This enables you to build on previous lessons.

I've always been curious about watercolours and just a little bit scared, but thanks to Vicki and Beth I am now beginning to realise what a great medium watercolours are. Thanks to Vicki's guidance and support I am now growing in confidence and will definitely keep at it and hopefully create some good work.

I am not very confident but Vicki has really looked after me and helped me so much. I wasn't sure about watercolour but it's amazing what can be achieved. I was a complete beginner and friends could not believe the standard of my work.
The course which can be ongoing is worth every penny.

Vicki is lovely teacher, you may also have lovely Beth. Makes all levels of students feel comfortable. I was a true beginner. I recommend her classes it's all very friendly and every week I took home a work of art that l had done! 6 two hour lessons for £60. Money well spent if you're looking for a Watercolour course.
