Paint Party – Be Creative, Get Social, Have Fun

Untitled design (20)

Gripped by the ‘start-up’ mania, today we are fervent to explore new things in every facet of life. Work, leisure, food, fashion, lifestyle – monotony and ‘being regular’ is passé.

So, move over run-of-the-mill party-sharty. A unique social gathering concept is coming up in a big way, where you can paint on canvas, eat-drink, have fun around, listen to some rocking music, unwind and completely chillax!!

And that’s known as a ‘Paint Party’!

Sounds interesting?

Here is more to it…..

Recently I attended a Paint Party organised by COCA (acronym of Cocktails 2 Canvas).

Cocktails 2 Canvas is an innovative platform, brainchild of Charlie’s Angels– Aliyah, Deepika & Zehra.

Deepika (a professional Painter), Zehra (an established Entrepreneur) and Aliyah (a Child Psychologist/Art Therapist) thought of unleashing people’s creativity with a cocktail in one hand and a paintbrush in the other – and that’s how Cocktail 2 Canvas came in existence!

PS – You don’t have to be a ‘Painter’ to join this

PPS – Teetotalers can enjoy their cuppa or a mocktail instead of drinks

 

 

 

How it works!

PrerequisitesNone except compliance to have fun & make merry!

Most of the Paint Parties include these…

  • 2 to 3 hours’ session, led by an artist-in-residence, organised at a local restaurant or any other similar set up
  • Painting supplies including colours, different type of brushes, canvases, easel, color palette, aprons, rags, stationary etc is provided by the organiser
  • Drinks/tea/coffee and usually light snacks are served

My Paint Party was at The Classic Rock Coffee Co. at Kalyani Nagar in Pune. It’s a nice place, lots of open space with a heavy rock feel all around.

For whom it works?

  • Amateur
  • Just-starting painters
  • Born painters and even for…
  • That sleeping painter in YOU!

Cost

all things GUD comes with a price, don’t they?

Ticket price for these paint parties depends on the location and drinks/food served.

Trust me it is quite reasonable, considering the product quality they offer!
