Brush Party is about making art fun. It’s where people of all ages and abilities can come and discover their artistic side. Most people don’t believe in their own creativity when it comes to art, but Brush Party is about to change that. Our fun step-by-step approach makes painting easy.

You don’t need to have ever painted before to come to one of our events. Take a look at our calendar and choose the artwork you’d like to recreate. We walk our guests through creating their own version of our theme in easy to understand stages. You will be amazed at what you can achieve whilst having fun with friends, online or at our popular locations throughout the UK.

I took my 82 year old dad as a birthday surprise - we had the best time and can’t wait till the next one.
Bea is so lovely - great venue

Amanda Durham Jul 2024


Another great class hosted by Bea, painting a lovely tranquil scene. The colours in this painting were beautiful and Bea guided us through the colour mixing and techniques to create our own masterpiece. A great night was had by all - the first time artists and others, like me, who love these classes as the perfect way to switch off for 3 hours. Thank you and see you next time

Painting class review by Amanda Durham - Harrow

Helen Jul 2024


Just a great excuse to catch up with friends and family. Bea had the patience and humour to make sure we all had a lovely night, despite the very varied artistic talents!!!

Susan Jul 2024


Excellent class, as always. Thoroughly enjoyable evening in great company. Thank you once again, Bea.

Anonymised ClassBento student Jul 2024


I attended with a friend and the event was held in the dining room of a pub - area closed to other patrons. Our teacher was very good and helped out where necessary. All materials were provided and the evening passed very quickly. We chose this event as the picture was very pretty and having seen the choice for upcoming events we will definitely be back. It was good value for money….an evening’s entertainment with a lovely painting to take home. What’s not to like?

Sue Gorton Jul 2024


Bea was great and such fun as usual.
We had a lovely evening and it was such a colourful painting.

Wendy Donovan Jul 2024


What a great time me and my friend had last night, We had a fab teacher and we actually made lovely paintings, having not an art bone in my body I was very impressed with the result, great evening out thoroughly recommend it!

Emma Evans Jul 2024


Really well paced, so well organised and such a talented and kind teacher and assistant. Great fun, relaxing. Highly recommend.

Rosemarie Turner Jul 2024


I have done 3 painting classes with Bea and they're all great! Well paced with a break in the middle. I have come away with a painting I can actually hang up at home each time! Looking forward to the next one :-)

Victoria Staiano Jul 2024


A really lovely evening, learning lots of new techniques. Really impressed with my painting.

Brea was really good at giving direction.

Loved my second brush party! So proud of what I made and getting better at trusting the process and learning the brush and mixing techniques to achieve better results. Great location and venue to celebrate a friends birthday as well.

Jayne Mead Jun 2024


Another great painting class with Bea and Paresh, looking forward to the next one, thank you.

Painting a beautiful sunflower picture in a lovely pub was the perfect way to spend a summer evening. Bea made it fun and expertly guided us all to paint similar but unique pieces of art. A fabulous evening was had by all with a beautiful picture to take home.

Great teacher, venue really good, a very pleasant evening, good fun was had by all

Amanda Durham Jun 2024


This was a lovely picture to paint, and I surprised myself with how cute the blue tit bird came out in my picture by following the simple but effective guidance Bea gave. It was a fun evening that whizzed by. Can’t wait to join the class next week to paint sunflowers!

Evening out with friends, very informative, teacher is great, venue local so ideal. Loved the materials provided. Very good value for money. Always love the end result, you never feel you can achieve the subject but you do and it’s amazing.

Painting class review by Beverley Hattersley - St. Albans

Emma Jun 2024


Loved this evening. Hadn’t expected background music but it added to the relaxed and fun atmosphere. The 3 hours flew by. A great way to get some art for your home and have a fabulous time creating it.

Amy Langshaw Jun 2024


This was the first time myself and my friend had attended. It was daunting but the instructions were so clear and the results were amazing. Plenty of materials were provided and the venue was perfect. Class was below for money when you get to to take something home at the end of it. Great night all round.

Bhavni Shah Jun 2024


Great birthday gift for my friend. We had an amazing time & can’t believe what we created.
Loved the way Bea taught us, shame it was quite loud in the venue though from other patrons.
Lovely evening spent creating a masterpiece

Kara Osullivan Jun 2024


Such a fun evening, lovely atmosphere, would definitely recommend it as a something different to do.

Thelma Jun 2024


Fantastic evening. Novice painter, came away with a painting I was actually happy with. Thanks for the tips and guidance. Really like how the whole class is taken through the instructions and then Bea is able to go round and help individuals too.

Teacher's response

Thank you for lovely feedback Thelma ;) We look forward to having you in class again

Lindsey Bass Jun 2024


A really fun way to spend an evening. Bea is a great teacher, kind and helpful and it’s amazing that with little or no artistic talent everyone ends up with a great picture.

Helen Richardson Jun 2024


As my second Brush Party attempt I created another corker of a picture and I can't even draw! Bea is brilliant at what she does and sets a great pace in which everyone is able to do their best work. I learnt so much about mixing colours and creating different textures in the picture and loved every minute. Thank you!

Charlotte Rogers Jun 2024

Darsha Shah Jun 2024


The class was amazing. I have not picked a paint brush in about 9 years. But Bea was amazing talking us at every step. Including the silhouette. Good value for money considering paints and materials provided. Her helper was great too. Would definitely recommend it.

Lovely class great location. we were sat near the back and it was sometimes difficult to see what colours we were supposed to be making but other than that it was a thoroughly enjoyable class with a lovely picture to take home

Suzanne Langford Jun 2024


What a fun night. This was my first time and I haven't picked up a paint brush in years. Bea made it easy to follow along, and was patient and encouraging. I was proud of my end result and I would recommend this to anyone.

Anjani Modi May 2024


Easy instructions and the painting turned out amazing even if you can’t paint! Even with a drink

Steph Galliers May 2024


Bea was great - very clear instructions and available for any support required. Great way to spend an evening

Lisa E Cargill May 2024


I booked this class for a present for my sister and friend. Had such a great time. Teacher was amazing. Gave us a step by step guide to painting. Giving great detail in mixing paints and tips on brush works. Was fascinating see our art work come to life. Has opened up a new interest. Loved my finished canvas. Will definitely be interested in another class.

Teacher's response

Thank you so so much Lisa! Your positive feedback means the world to me. I am so glad you and your friends have enjoyed the painting experience and well done for creating such cute cats! Please do come back anytime you feel inspired to paint!
Bea xx

Tracy May 2024


Wonderful evening to catch up with a friend and paint a colourful elephant.
Bea provided excellent instructions and aided those less confident to mix paint and achieve their final image.
Excellent room at The Three Crowns in Bushey as there was loads of room to get round the table and to paint. Able to watch Bea as she guided us through achieving our final painting. Quick service at the bar. Reasonably priced drinks.
Great value for money and collected a sticker to save and earn towards a free session in the future.

Amy May 2024


Had so much fun at Paint and Sip - we will definitely be going back! Bea was a great teacher

Carolyn Judge May 2024


Absolutely loved this class. Bea was an excellent teacher, very clear and encouraging throughout. The venue was a lovely pub and we were able to order finger food to the table (though not much room). We did the magnificent Rainbow Warrior Elephant, colourful and creative. Having not painted since our school
days we were thrilled with what we produced! Thank you Bea!

Teacher's response

Thank you so so much Carolyn. So glad you have enjoyed the painting experience. Your positive feedback means the world to me!

Bea was great. It was a fantastic experience and great creative painting led step by step.

Petya May 2024


This was a great painting event, the teacher was very helpful and fun - a fantastic 3 hours, so very good value for money!

Deborah Bowden May 2024


Bea was very helpful and informative. Nice venue had plenty of parking nearby. Materials supplied were very good, 3 different brushes which made it easier to paint. I now know I can paint a picture in 3 hours. It was very good value for the money, great atmosphere. Loved seeing everyone's picture at the end they were all good. Even if you think you can't paint this proves you can everyone painted a good picture. Would definitely go again.

Julia George May 2024


It was a lovely way to relax and take time out from hectic everyday life I have never really painted before so I learnt some new skills and was pleased with my painting.
There was very little parking at the venue, so being on my own, I had a longish walk to the car park. The venue was lovely but would have preferred to sit in a better position as I have arthritis in my neck, so looking behind was uncomfortable for me. Maybe just because it was so popular.
Very friendly crowd and very personable tutor.
Thank you

Claire Kenny May 2024


Second pain party with Bea. She is great and explains clearly what we need to do. Another great evening

Had a fab evening painting a wonderful, colourful puppy. Bea, as always, guided us through the process and then encouraged us to be creative with our colours. It was a lively class in Watford, but we all had a great time and ended up with a lovely piece of individual art. Looking forward to my next class in 2 weeks time

Lots of paint and accessories supplied.
Enjoyable social evening.

A wonderful atmosphere and easy to follow instructions from Bea. Can’t wait to go again!

Joan Scully May 2024


Great atmosphere, cant believe I created a painting that looks 'presentable' as I don't have an artistic bone in my body! A lively fun atmosphere. Personally I could have benefited from a slower pace on some of the instructions, particularly on paint mixing, but as a novice perhaps i was a tad slowCant believe I am saying this butI will be back..Thank you Bea

This was my 5th Brush Party with Bea and was really enjoyable. The venue was lovely, the picture we painted was great, and Bea as always made it a really enjoyable evening. I’ve already signed up for two more events with Bea this month as I find it is a great way to relax and lose my thoughts into creating a lovely painting. My husband was super impressed with my cow painting - he said he can’t stop looking at it. Thank you Bea and thanks to your husband too who kept my paint pallet fully loaded. See you next week

Ruth Connolly Apr 2024


Our first time visiting and was for a date night. Bea and her husband were very welcoming, especially once learning it was our first time and having not picked up a paintbrush since primary school. The other guests were also very lovely. The class was instructed well, step by step process and Bea was always on hand and walking round to help/advise. I loved it so much I booked another class once I got home. All materials are supplied and you get to bring your painting home as a memorable keepsake. Wonderful.

Got this experience for my mum, for mothers day. Was great! and totally worth it! the venue was nice and spacious, could get drinks and paint. The teacher was kind and nice! overall would deffo book this again.

Only thing I would say is that it is a little pricey

Pam Futo Apr 2024


An evening out with a few friends whom had never tried beforethey (& I) loved it :)

Bea has an amazing way of teaching the whole class. Is approachable and has a lovely sense of humour.
We were given everything we needed and nothing was too much trouble.
I particularly like the way it the class came together and we were all friends by the endplus we got to take our masterpieces home for all to see.
Just brilliant!, thankyou Xx

Teacher's response

Thank you so so much Pam! Your words mean a lot to me :) Such a pleasure having you and your friends in my "unconventional class" And so glad you've created such a beautiful version of Summer Breeze. Looking forward to seeing you soon

Great fun! A well organised event with a super teacher and a helpful assistant. The venue was perfect and the materials provided were of good quality.
Thank you for a great evening! I shall certainly be attending again.

An enjoyable evening.
As a beginner I was very happy with my outcome considering I was a little apprehensive about painting straight on to canvas! The teacher talked us through each stage of the painting process in order to achieve the final result.
She was patient and willing to give advise on which colours work best to find the right shade/tone that would compliment each layer.
I left feeling pleased with what I had achieved!

Anonymised ClassBento student Mar 2024


Great night, lots of laughs. Would recommend even if you can’t paint!

We have thoroughly enjoyed the Bluebell wood painting class. Bea was amazing, she engaged with the whole class, advising and encouraging.
I joined my sister and her daughter for her birthday celebrations, the activity was so much fun and despite not having any experience in painting, we walked away with our very good looking paintings. The whole experience was fabulous.
I will definitely return for more classes and feel like this would be a really good new hobby.

I attended with my friend who has done a lot of painting and I hadn’t done any since school!
Bea was a very good teacher, she explained things clearly and went at a very good pace. She came round and helped us and made suggestions how to improve it.
Everyone’s painting were excellent and all slightly unique. Will definitely book again with Bea.

A fun and relaxing evening! Teacher was lovely, really approachable to ask for help, her husband was lovely too handing things out and clearing things away. Never, ever thought I could create something like this! I thought it was good value for money and definitely want to go again. The difficulty is choosing which one!

Our teacher, Bea, was fantastic - as usual! Her instructions throughout were clear and demonstrations were brilliant. Bea’s bubbly personality made the experience even more fun!

All our materials were provided and were set up ready for us to begin the Paint and Sip class. We could have as much as we needed to get the painting finished which was good to know.

I’ll be back next time!

Bea is a great instructor, even when I look at the picture and cannot imagine producing a half decent replica it always turns out better than I expected and the equipment provided always meets my needs and I arrive early to grab some food before we begin. Even if you go alone the othe participants are friendly and make you feel welcome. A relaxing evening out

Sam Titcombe Feb 2024


I have done 4 of theses classes with Bea and her husband and they are always fun with pleasing results nothing is too much trouble need more paint need another plate more napkins they are there need some extra guidance again always provided with a smile and not made to fell inadequate.

As well as just the fun lighthearted way that Bea delivers the instruction with a giggle at every opportunity with her fabulous sense of humour.

The three crowns is a lovely intimate Venue so everyone can hear clearly the instructions and no one that’s not part of the party comes near.

Another thoroughly enjoyable evening thank you.

I did one to the brush party online tutorial but it was no where near as much fun or relaxing

Teacher's response

Bless you Sam! Your words and kindness are so special to me.
Looking forward to having you in my "unconventional" art class soon.

We went as a group of 6 friends from work. It was such a good way for us to let down our hair. Bea the artist was amazing and talked through each step and was always there for when we needed help or guidance. It was fun, pushed us out of our comfort zones. All materials were provided and we was shown how to use each brush for the styles. We will definitely be coming back again!

This was my second Brush party with Bea and it was just as good as the first. Bea and her husband are both excellent in guiding us through the process of creating a lovely piece of art, keeping us topped up with paint when we need it. I went on my own and really enjoyed it as I did before. I hadn’t thought of it as something I could do regularly, but I find it a great way to relax away from my busy week. I’ve already booked myself onto another of Bea’s parties at the end of the month. It’s a really fulfilling event

It is always so lovely having you in my “unconventional class” Amanda. And so glad you choose art to unwind and relax. See you soon. Bea

This was my second Brush Party, and I really enjoyed it. It’s quite fast paced, and we’re given a lot of guidance on what to do, but can also add some of our own creative flair too. A thoroughly enjoyable evening, the time whizzed by and I left with a great piece of art that was far better than if I’d been left alone to paint it. I’d definitely recommend giving it a go!

Angela Bennett Jan 2024


Loved Brush Party at The Red Lion, Radlett this week. Great venue.

The teacher (Bea) and her husband made a really great team in facilitating our art class. Bea took her tike in explaining how to maximise use of the brushes and colours. It was taught at a pace that was easy to follow and we were really happy with the results.

The venue of the Crown was perfect because the classroom was the perfect size for the group and was gorgeously decorated for Christmas.

I came to this one with my daughter but would be happy coming alone on future.

Thanks so much.

A fantastic night of crazy brush strokes creating a beautiful piece of artwork which becomes so animated by the end of the session! I never knew I could paint a Christmas cow in a warm, relaxed venue, sipping mulled wine.
Would definitely recommend a brush party experience. Bea our teacher made the session very entertaining with her upbeat humour and great step by step instructions resulting in the whole group creating amazing cows. Will definitely be back to add to my other collection of brush painting experiences

Casey Smith Dec 2023


Fun painting session run by the lovely Bea! I am so amazed with the outcome, especially as I had no previous experience! Bea makes you feel at ease and gives suggestions on how to make your painting come alive

Anonymised ClassBento student Dec 2023


Really enjoyed the Brush Party. Good value for money and enjoyed doing something different.

The only thing making this good instead of great was the venueas it was in a reserved area of the pub, it was very difficult to hear instructions and wasn't suitable in my opinion for children present with bad language regularly heard.

Roopa Dec 2023


Bea was enthusiastic, knowledgable and encouraging. Myself and my daughter had a lovely time and came home with some gorgeous pictures. We well be back and will recommend!

I've been to a Brush Party with Bea many times and always enjoy it. Bea and her husband are very friendly and ready to help if needed.

Bethany Darroch Dec 2023


4th time attending a class. This was far far too many people in one room, made it difficult to squash past to get to and from your seat. Also not the ideal set up for seeing the front with people sitting back to back in the middle.
No parking available, pub sat on a very big junction and all residential roads very busy. This wasn’t noted on the booking and I think it should be.
Overall a very rushed, over full and stressful event, bar staff super slow meaning large wait times for a drink.

The painting and class itself was good enough, and suitable instructions.
Break took too long and overran in the end.

The sessions was lively, and the instructor was clear in her instructions. Would recommend to a friend.

This is the second Paint & Sip party we have attended and it was in a different venue with lots more people, so didn’t get the help/personal touch we received when we were at the bake house. The picture was actually quite complicated, so there were lots of steps which I felt was rushed through and although requested help on several occasions, Bea just came over and gave the pics a quick glance without any help. This was not as enjoyable as our first one.
