Online Paint and Sip Sessions

Learn to paint — with a glass of wine in your hand — at these live-streamed paint and sip classes.

If your creative juices start flowing after a beverage or several, then you're probably a fan of Cork & Chroma. The BYO art studio has been hosting paint and sip sessions across Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne for years — and now it's bringing the boozy, arty fun into your home.

From Wednesday, April 1, Cork & Chroma is moving its alcohol-fuelled art classes online, so you can join in without leaving the house. The general setup remains the same, with each session teaching wannabe artists how to paint a specific picture. Whip up a gorgeous midnight scene, capture your houseplants on canvas, busy your brush painting Joshua trees or go manic for mandalas.

Sessions cost $20 each, and are hosted by Cork & Chroma's artists — who'll be live-streaming their step-by-step painting instructions from 6.30pm AEST on select weeknights, and at 10am and 2pm on weekends. Classes are currently scheduled until the end of May.

And if you're wondering about supplies, you can either use what you've got at home or you can order one of Cork & Chroma's new At Home Studio Kits. The latter comes in three sizes, setting you pack $60 for one person, $100 for two and $160 for four — and includes a range of acrylic paints, two canvases per person, and a palette and a set of brushes each. Pick them up from C&C yourself, or contact them about delivery options.

As for the wine, beer, cocktails or whatever other booze gets you in the painting mood, you'll need to provide that yourself, as always.
