Leeds welcomes ‘painting and wine’ with PopUp Painting

PopUp Painting launched at Brasserie Blanc in Leeds last week with a full house – “wine glass in one hand, paintbrush in the other”.

Last Thursday PopUp Painting launched at Brasserie Blanc, Leeds with a full house. PopUp Painting runs ‘social painting’ events in bars and restaurants across the UK, and is working with the likes of Brasserie Blanc, The Mustard Pot, and The Maven with a mission of “unleashing creativity”.

The company first launched in London in 2013, and now runs c.45-50 events a month across London, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool – and now Leeds.

The launch event was led by local artist, Andrew Sales, who guided guests through a version of Claude Monet’s Waterlilies. Commenting, Sales said: “it’s a perfect alternate night out for people looking for a casual and creative evening of carefree painting”.

At the event guests were guided step by step (but encouraged to go off piste if they wanted), while they sipped wine and enjoyed themed French music.

Founder and Manager Director, Phyllissa Shelton said:“We are delighted to have launched in Leeds. We are now in over five major uk cities, continuing our mission to bring art out of the gallery and classroom into the places people meet on an everyday basis.”

“Thank you to Brasserie Blanc Leeds and to all the guests that joined us on the night!”
