About Paint and Play
Fair prices - a fun, relaxing night out - the inspirational ambience of a real art gallery.

"I was a little shy about coming to a paint and play session, but I'm glad I did.
The class was relaxing and fun. I thought being in an art gallery and learning from a real artist might be daunting, but I felt comfortable and right at home.
The teacher was really good as he walked us through the painting and I felt no pressure and worked at my own pace. He helped each of us and didn't criticise our work, he just gave us helpful advice.
I learned a lot and had a good time with the other students.
Thank you for a wonderful evening."    Linda G

A quick thought...

What greater gift is there than one from the heart. A painting from you to a friend or loved one will be cherished and appreciated.
Though your painting will not hang in the Louvre or be sold at auction for millions, it will no doubt be priceless to them and grace one of their walls.
P & P paintings are perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas or special occasions. Afternoon and evening classes available.


At the Brigantine, you won't just make a copy of a subject painting, you'll learn how to paint.

Our Paint & Play program offers more than just a fun time. When the class is over, you'll leave with a painting you created and with a knowledge, background, and insight into the world of art and this is where our program differs from others.

Our instructors walk you through the techniques of creating a painting with, as Melinda said above in her testimonial, no pressure, no criticism, just helpful guidance. You learn the basics of setup, sketching, composition, lighting, detail, colors, textures and much more. It's s subtle process that occurs almost without being noticed. At some point you'll realize that what you're creating is well beyond what you thought you were capable of and that, indeed, is the fun part. In fact the comment most often heard after a class is 'I never thought I could paint like this'.

You won't be creating a Rembrandt or a Monet after one class, but each time you come back you'll see your abilities improve as you begin to understand what goes into a painting. Our instructors offer a wide range of subjects from landscapes to portraits and still lifes each requiring their own special techniques.

Some of our Paint & Players have moved on to bigger and better things. An example of which is a former student, Jean, who has moved on under the tutelage of one of our in-house professional artists, Walter Monastyretsky, in our Private Classes program.
