What Exactly happens at a Paintclub night out?

People come along, with friends, on their own, have fun, paint, have a drink or two and generally have a good time.

Paintclub is designed to be hassle free, you don’t need to bring anything with you, we provide all the materials you’ll need, we want you to have a fun, social and creative day/night out. We ask people to arrive around ten mins early in order to grab an easel, a drink and get ready to paint! A local artist will guide you with step by step instruction from blank canvas to finished masterpiece! It’s an informal, fun event with plenty of time to chat and by then end of the night have a completed painting to take home! 

But I’ve never painted before, what if I’m no good? Will I still have fun?

Yes, you’ll still have fun! Paintclub is designed for everyone, whether you’re a master artist yourself or you’ve never picked up a paintbrush. No Experience is Required! Paintclub is a fun event where you can try your hand at painting in a relaxed social environment. You’ll have easy to follow instructions and the artist plus helpers will be around to give as much or as little help as you need.

What Is Included?

Everything you’ll need to create a fabulous painting. Two hours of step by step instruction from a local artist, a stretched canvas, acrylic paint, the use of a table easel, paintbrushes, apron and all other supplies. And depending on the event, food and/or drink will also be included, check the ticket description to see exactly what’s included, we have a couple of different events and ticket types depending on the event.

Isn’t Paintclub a Club? Do I need to sign up?

No, Paintclub isn’t a club or for members or anything like that, we like to think of it as an alternative nightclub! You are free to come to any event you wish and as many times as you like, just buy the tickets for whichever date you prefer in whatever location.  You can see in advance on our website what painting we will be creating on different dates. Each paintclub event is treated a single event.

Does the event price include drinks and food?

Yes and No. Depending on what type of event it is, there may be food and drinks included. Please check individual event listings for specific details. 

How can I Book tickets?

All tickets to our Paintclub events must be pre-booked online. No tickets are available on the door at our events. 

Tickets are usually released 3-4 weeks before the event and close 6 hours before the event starts, so even if you decide last-minute there might be tickets still available. Although, many of our events do get SOLD OUT super quick, so we always advise to book early!

You can pay using most major debit and credit cards.

Terms and Conditions: Please be aware tickets are Non-refundable and for the Paintclub on the date and venue for which you purchase. We cannot transfer your ticket to future Paintclub events, in any circumstances. You are of course, more than welcome to sell on your purchased ticket to another person if you wish. We would ask that you let us know to amend our guest list.

Can I sit with my friends? What if I’m coming alone?

All our Paintclub events have unassigned seating.

Doors open to our Paintclub events 30 mins before the advertised start time. Seats are allocated on a first come, first served basis, so the earlier you get there, the better seat you can get!

Due to the nature of our events and the studio set up in our venues, we cannot guarantee seats together, especially if you are late. No admittance will be allowed once Event has commenced.

If you are a group of over 2 persons (yes really!), please arrive on time in order to be seated together. When booking tickets online, you can also insert a ‘Group Name’ on each ticket so we know you are with a certain group even if you purchase tickets separately. This does not guarantee seats together but it does help us to arrange seating.

What age limit is on your events?

The majority of our Paintclub events are 18+ and ID will be required. 

In the case of our Paintclub Family events, our Age Limit is 8+ but ALL attendees under the Age of 18 years must be accompanied by a PARTICIPATING Adult. Due to the limitations on space in our venue partners, unfortunately, we do not permit non-participating attendees at our events.

Is your Paint Safe? Does it stain?

In short, Yes. We use non toxic, water based acrylic paint which will clean off most surfaces. However, it is paint and it will damage your clothing. We do provide long aprons but accidents can happen so please do not wear your best clothes to Paintclub. It is stated in our Terms and Conditions and on your ticket that we take no responsibility for your clothes or personal belongings if they get damaged during Paintclub.

What If I’m Late?

We’ll aim to start on time. No admittance will be allowed once Event has commenced, due to the nature of the painting. 

What if I need help?

Every Paintclub will have a master artist instructing and helpers on the floor. All of our artists will be delighted to give you a hand if you’re not getting the hang of it or just need a little bit of help. Just ask! We won’t bite, we promise! 

Is Paintclub Mobile? Can you Host a Paintclub at my venue, house, event?

Yes Paintclub is completely mobile.

We have hosted in bars, barns, boardrooms and your Nan’s kitchen (true story.) and can basically turn any venue into a pop up art studio!

Paintclub is perfect for team building events, sports & social clubs, hen parties, get-togethers, reunions. We’re extremely friendly and up for the not-your-average event so drop us a line at hello@paintclub.ie with your enquiry and we’d be delighted to have a chat!
