"As most artists do, I struggled to find a career that allowed me to express myself, until I learned that with your favourite tipple, everyone enjoys painting just as much as I do." says Craig Gilman, Painty's founder, who grew up in Biddulph.
"I love teaching art and people have fun learning, that's why I've been really excited since our company's launch in April this year. It's going to be a colourful 2014!"
A Painty event, in a nutshell:
It's best to check in about 30 minutes before the event begins, most establishments offer a full menu at the bar while you wait. Once you take your seat, our artist will walk you through using your painting tools and then break down the evening's picture into simple steps that you can follow. The canvas is yours; you can choose to experiment with it or replicate the steps shown, you're the artist and we'll provide the inspiration!
Are you a venue looking for a way to attract more customers? Join the other venues out there who are already taking advantage of this hot new trend. A Painty event typically brings 20 people into your venue on a slow night of the week to paint, eat, and drink. Painty transforms your empty, unused space into a regular event full of painting (and paying) customers, at no charge to you.
We can set-up an art studio anywhere, from your workplace and our partner venues, to a club or restaurant – Birmingham, nationally and beyond. From birthday and hen nights to date nights, team building and networking events, we can help you celebrate anything!
On 1st July 2014, Painty will be at Portofino Italian Restaurant in Hanley for their first North Staffs event! Places are limited to 20 places so book now via the website and get Painty!
