PopUp Paining is a great idea for a corporate activity. I invited my team for a Banksy-themed event and it not only relaxed the team but also let the creative juices flow. Everyone on the team was delighted with the event, had a lot of fun and they all were super excited to be able to paint a “real painting with real paints” and take it home. On top of that the organizers are very flexible and friendly which makes the whole event a great experience.

The street art workshop was the most popular company activity we’ve ever done! The team loved the chance to get stuck in and unleash their creativity (without taking themselves too seriously) We can’t wait to bring our clients to try it out with them, too.

Last year I hosted a PopUp Painting charity event that proved to be very popular and a conversation topic for months to come. This year, two friends and I were challenged to raise £300 from £30 by our community choir for their charity - We See Hope. It was a no-brainer that PopUp Painting would be the choice for our fundrasing evening. Last year's "newbies" returned with their friends and family and, with Kieran's help, 39 of us painted "STARRY NIGHT." Laughter filled the room as, once again, a joyful evening unfolded and works of art evolved. With the help of the PopUp Painting team we raised an amazing £600!
