Pinot & Picasso is the paint and sip phenomenon that allowed Australian’s to enjoy the creative activity of painting on canvas, while sipping on their favourite alcoholic (or non-alcoholic) drink in an interactive studio environment. The Pinot & Picasso group is now Australia’s largest and most successful paint and sip franchise, accumulating 54 studios Australia wide, and soon to join the international market.
If you are unfamiliar with the concept, sessions typically run for three hours with a professional artist introducing the class to basic painting techniques and step-by-step guides to creating the artwork they booked in to paint. With a major focus on providing entertainment during the class, P&P invite the customer to bring their own alcohol and spend the class, singing old school-hot hits, laughing with their friends and unleashing their inner-creative.
Founders, James Crowe and Aaron Carrasco, opened their first studio in 2018 after Aaron’s fiancé attended an art class that focused more on the art, and less on having a fun time. The two entrepreneurs realised a gap in the market and opened their first trial studio in their hometown, Penrith NSW. Within two years, the franchise grew astronomically with many states and territories in Australia now being geographically sold out.
Not dissimilar to how the founders commenced their journey, Bendigo studio owner Rebecca Auld joined a P&P session with her local mum’s group on their first night out after having their bubs, and has not looked back! Rebecca and her husband Reuben joined the Franchise in June this year and are excited to be bringing the experience to Bendigo this August!
Bendigo Studio Owner Rebecca, shares her favourite part of the Pinot & Picasso experience as; “There is nothing like sitting with friends, enjoying your favourite beverage (mine being a good pinot, chardy or bubbles) all while painting, laughing and having the time of your life! And you get to take home your very own masterpiece; mine taking centre stage in our lounge room with my other childrens’ much loved art!”
The Pinot & Picasso classes speak for themselves, please join us in Bendigo to paint, sip, sing, laugh and remember what it feels like to express yourself through creativity.
