Paint-and-sip nights typically see would-be Picassos assemble in venues for glow-in-the-dark painting experiences and wine-fuelled sketching lessons. In time for summer, Paintvine's famous group classes are heading outdoors for BYO painting in some of the country's leafiest settings.

For its 2023 season, Paintvine's outdoor painting classes will see participants tackle scenic scenes and still lives — including a coastal landscape called 'Summer in New Zealand', Van Gogh-inspired sunflowers, and for those in the capital, Wellington's Oriental Bay.

In Auckland, picturesque central spot Grey Lynn Park will serve as the venue across four dates: Wednesday, January 18 from 6-8pm, Saturday, January 21 from 2-4pm, Wednesday, January 25 from 6-8pm and Saturday, January 28 from 2-4pm.

An absolute beginner? Don't worry. No previous experience or artistic skills are required as one of the Paintvine artists will be on hand to lead each session with step-by-step instructions. Paintvine provides everything you need to create your masterpiece during each two-hour session, from acrylic paints to canvases, brushes and paint trays.

Food and drink wise it's BYO —  pack a picnic or pick up takeaways from one of the nearby eateries, pack something fizzy to celebrate the summer season, and let your creative juices flow.
