Paint the Nude Art Class

The class was really great and both girls were lovely! The venue was a bar so you can go buy drinks if you like which is quite nice. We were given beautiful colours to paint with and extra brushes/sponges as required.

Acrylic Paint Pouring Class

This class was amazing! Melissa taught us a range of techniques and closely guided us through each one. Excellent value for money as you go home with 4 canvases. Thank you!

Acrylic Paint Pouring Class

Great session, and great easy to access venue. We made 4 A4 size canvases that all represented a different technique of acrylic pouring. Fantastic for beginners who always wanted to try acrylic pouring, and need the first step to demystify this great way of making art. Thank you Undergrounder, it was a great afternoon.

We had a fantastic time, the teachers were great, clear and on hand to help with a number of us that either went off plan or needed some touching up. All in all a really great class & cant recommend enough

Acrylic Paint Pouring Class

I was lucky enough to enjoy a great one-to-one (unexpectedly) 2-hour session with Melissa on acrylic pouring! The class took place outdoors, which made a change! Melissa was clearly passionate about and knowledgeable of her craft- she would carefully explain and demonstrate the different pouring techniques before I was let loose with the paints. I loved the effects that were created from pouring and  + more

Not too hard if you follow instructions and the end product is quite nice to keep. It's a nice way to spend an afternoon with a friend, totally worth it!

Painting Class: Ocean Waves

The idea is great. The location is great. But probably doesn’t fit complete beginners. We’ve been given the colours, the brushes and an example of the picture we’re making. For the person who never held a brush that wasn’t enough. I was expecting to be given certain techniques or a guidance how to make it work.

Leonora Babi Oct 2021

Painting Class: Ocean Waves

Great experience! Definitely doing it again! I didn’t know I had it in me! It felt so natural to play with colours. I loved the fact that I was also free to paint my own interpretation and not strictly follow the instructions. Really lovely venue with a chilled, warm and rustic atmosphere. Mellissa was very friendly and she gently guided us throughout. Really good fun!

Had a great time paining a whale! Melissa held the space beautifully, with the right amount of reassurance and guidance when needed. It was quite therapeutic… wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Painting Class: Ocean Waves

I attended a small (4 students) painting class which was a lovely introduction to Bento, I had never been before. The atmosphere was welcoming and teacher (Melissa ) friendly and helpful. I was lucky that there was another person there who was into being social and chatty as otherwise it might not have been so nice. I would say that when there are only very few people -and especially couples who often don’t feel the need to be overly social as they have each other- it would be a good idea to have a little short icebreaker activity at the start  + more

Painting Class: Ocean Waves

Definitely worth it! A small group of nice people willing to discover something new. There was both enough guidance provided and enough freedom given to try things. It was the first time I took a painting class and I really enjoyed it. The time was well managed too.
