Art jamming is an increasingly popular date idea, but many of us face the dilemma on what to paint, or lack experience.

Paintblush provides a brand new art jamming experience with a sip ‘n’ paint concept. Sip on a glass of wine and munch on snacks, while following a guided tutorial by a professional art instructor.

This session is beginner-friendly and hence, suitable for those with minimal art background. If you are more experienced, you can opt for their non-guided art jamming sessions too.

Under their Sip ‘n’ Paint Signature Art Jam, painters can select from their variety of reference photos on their website before booking. The different categories available ranges from landscape, animals, floral, and more. You will be provided with the necessary art materials such as paint, apron, canvas, brushes, glass jar, and a piece of cloth.

During the session, there will be an art instructor to guide you along with a full demonstration. Though everyone starts off with the same reference painting, do not worry about getting every stroke perfect as the final painting is up to everyone’s unique interpretation.

For instance, our session was based on Van Gogh’s The Starry Night. But, I only used it as reference, and painted a more colourful version of it with an addition of my dog — Kuro.

Bring your own food

Paintblush allows all visitors to bring own snacks or drinks to sip ‘n’ paint. They also provide chiller, glassware, ice buckets and ice cubes to enhance your experience. However, there will be an additional $3 fee if you bring in full meals such as pizzas, pastas, rice, etc. I personally love to munch on small bites or sip on coffee and bubble tea while I am working on something, so this was awesome.

Complimentary photoshoot

After you have completed your masterpiece, you can head over to their backdrop for a complimentary selfie photoshoot for ten minutes, and they will email the soft copy to you.

It is definitely a fun way to relax, de-stress, and connect with others while also engaging in a creative activity. Prices start from $49 and the sessions are only available at 11am, 3pm and 7pm and are strictly by appointment only.
