Beginning as a charity event raising money for a local friend, Paint Like…… evenings have now turned in a regular community phenomenon!
Enjoyable, relaxed and friendly, Paint Like…… evenings are a lovely way for beginners to start painting and experienced painters thrive on the creative atmosphere as well.
All painting materials are provided and there are easy steps to follow set out by artist Alison Berry. Painters are always free to do their own thing as well. At the end of the evening you’ll walk away with your very own creation. The evenings are aimed at adults, however older accompanied children are welcome too.
The first event in Hartfield, East Sussex run by Alison Berry, was held to raise money for a local friend who needed to find £100,000 in 12 weeks for a life saving operation. A creative spark was ignited and more Paint Like….. evenings were requested. A Turner evening was followed by Monet and then Paint Like Klimt using 24 carat gold leaf. The local friend has now had her operation and is recovering extremely well – it seems that good things can lead onto other good things.
If you are interested in a Paint Like…. event for your local art group or perhaps having a small private event in your own home with a few friends, please contact Alison Berry. For the next event in Hartfield, Alison is planning on working with clay focusing on noses, so instead of Paint Like….. the evening might be called something Mould a Nose….!?!
