As a company all about themed painting events, it shouldn’t be a surprise that we absolutely love Christmas. We’ve got a calendar bursting with festive spirit, and the Christmas playlists are on in the office!
We’ve still got a couple of ‘conventional’ pieces (such as Starry Night in Angel on 6 December) on the calendar, generally we’re making the most of the moment. Christmas twists on ‘Girl With A Balloon‘ (Manchester and London) and ‘Starry Night‘, London at Christmas scenes by Elizabeth Kennedy, and lots of snowy London scenes by Gordon Bruce – these are all gorgeous additions to our seasonal calendar.
Classical Pop-Ups will also be joining us for an extra special event at The Roundhouse in Camden on 14 December. Music is a bit part of how we theme our events, and we’re very excited to be joined by a trio of highly talented musicians from Classical Pop-Ups at this special event. We’ll be theming the event around a Christmassy London scene by Gordon Bruce – so expect Christmas music, a Christmas tree, mince pies, and prosecco!
And if you’re looking for a slightly different gift this Christmas – why not give the gift of creativity? Our gift vouchers for one or two make the perfect present for someone with a creative hunger, or those wanting to do something a little different. Our team will be working right up till Christmas – so this is a perfect last minute gift idea.
As fun as Christmas and New Year are – what about that little lull between the two? Loads of people will be out of London (which makes driving our kit around much quicker), so it can be a bit dull. Fear not! Join us at Urban Meadow in Bayswater/Notting Hill Gate for an evening of painting inspired by the adorable ‘Bear and a Hare‘ (John Lewis’ amazing commercial from a couple of years ago). This will be a great event for getting the cobwebs out of your hair in that lull, whether you’re coming by yourself or with family and friends.
