Sip on booze and create retro neon art with Geelong’s new glow-in-the-dark paint classes

Geelong paint and sip business Pinot & Picasso has introduced Neon Lights.

You know what they say: The best things happen when the lights go out, and that couldn’t be more true at Geelong’s beloved paint and sip art studio Pinot & Picasso thanks to its newest addition.

Introducing Neon Light Art Classes!

Stay up to date with all the epic events happening in and around the region here.

Upping the usual paint n’ sip game at Pinot & Picasso, Neon Lights is the new series of glow-in-the-dark paint classes.

Running for three hours, you’ll still get to experience all the best bits from the regular classes, however, your artworks are really set to glow with their special fluoro paints set under UV lights.

“Our NEW glow in the dark experience really takes our paint and sip sessions to a whole new level. With this exciting environment and creating a masterpiece under UV lights is something so unique – and did we say so much FUN?!,” the business revealed.

“If our regular classes are 10/10 on the fun scale, Neon Nights has just jumped us up to 12/10!”

So far neon classes announced include ‘Van Glow’, where you’ll paint your own Starry Neon Night, inspired by Van Gogh and ‘Boogie’ where you’ll paint your very own disco ball in this glow in the dark special to a whole bunch of 80’s tunes. You bet ABBA will be playing!

Be sure to wear white, so you too can glow the night away.

If you aren’t familiar with Pinot & Picasso, it’s definitely one to add to your bucket list.

Encouraging attendees to fight that artistic self-doubt in these relaxed evening painting sessions with a little liquid courage, you’ll be equipped with a glass of wine in one hand and a paintbrush in the other to create a masterpiece to take home and show your mum. It’s perfect when you’re looking for something new and exciting to do with your besties, and there’s just something so relaxing about chatting, getting tipsy and looking busy.

Even if you don’t consider yourself a ‘creative’ in the slightest, that’ll all change the moment you pop on your paint-splattered apron, settle in with a full glass of wine and start creating your very own masterpiece.

On the night, all you need to do is bring your own bottle of wine and their expert Pinot and Picasso host will deliver the session with comprehensive step by step instruction with plenty room left for your inner-Picasso to run wild. By the end of the night, even all you ‘non-creatives’ will be taking home your very own Picasso!

Your ticket includes everything you’ll need for your masterpiece – a 40 x 50cm blank canvas, paint, brushes, easel, apron, and of course glassware for your beverages (most importantly). All you need to bring along is your favourite bottle of vino and we’d recommend bringing some snacks. BYO cheeseboard, here we come.

Pinot & Picasso is located at 150 Ryrie Street, Geelong. You can book your neon or regular session here.
