This is PaintEvents
Treat yourself to a colorful night out and try something new. We organize hands-on painting experiences in and around Zurich. Our goal is to create a fun and stress-free environment for you to slow down and let your creativity flow. Most of our events take place in one of our painting studios in Zurich (one in 8002 Enge and one in 8004 Zentrum). Jump directly to our event calendar or scroll down for more information:

Our events can be divided into “Guided Painting” events and “Open Painting” sessions.
Guided Painting Events
This is our main event type and is suitable for all levels, including “first time” painters. The idea is that you create your own painting under the step-by-step guidance of one of our hosts. Prior experience is not required or expected. The last time you held a brush was in primary school? No problem, we’ve got you covered! Our mission is to help you (re)discover how much fun it is to play with colors and let you feel the joy of going home with your very own masterpiece.
While most people roughly follow the instructions (adding their own character and style!), you are also more than welcome to join these sessions if you want to paint something different.

Open Painting Sessions
Our second type of events are open painting sessions at our own studio. These are intended for people who want to paint independently while spending time with like-minded people. At least one of our hosts is always there for inspiration, support or just a second opinion. In contrast to the guided paint events, however, there are no step-by-step instructions.
No registration or tickets are required for these sessions. We offer you the option to buy materials from us (canvases, paper, coloring books) and use our colors for a reasonable fee. You may also bring your own materials, in which case we just charge a small fee for the use of the studio. Our main goal is to turn our studio into a hub where art enthusiasts can meet and build a community. More information and prices are on our studio page.
Dates and times of open painting sessions can be found in our event calendar.

Building a Community of Painting Enthusiasts
We want to make it easier for people in Zurich to spend time with crafty activities and to meet like minded people.
