FAQs
What will I be painting?
Guests can transform a photo of their choice into a painting in just 90 minutes, using our clever light boxes, even as a complete beginner. You can choose any photo on your smartphone: a holiday snap, loved one, poster art, anything that inspires you!
Are your classes suitable for children?
Yes, if they have adult supervision. If having a grown-up present is not possible, we also run Mini MasterPeace classes for those younger budding artists.
What's included?
- A mini Art-Kit full of brand new artist materials including an A4 canvas board, brushes, pencil, acrylic paints and more - all to keep after class! - A complimentary sweet treat and alcoholic / non-alcoholic drink - Biodegradeable apron - 90 minutes with a professional artist - Frames available to purchase at the end of class
What is the structure of the class?
Each class will begin with pencil and paper based warm up exercises to help you find your creative flow before moving onto your main pieces. Once your smartphone has been connected to our projector, you'll spend a few moments effortlessly outlining the photo of your choice in pencil onto your canvas board. You'll then be guided by a professional artist instructor to create an acrylic painting that is personal to you. Frames will be offered at the end of class should you wish to hang your finished piece up as soon as you get home!
Will I finish my painting?
Lots of our guests finish their paintings in the first sitting with us, have them framed on site, and hang them up as soon as they get home. But... it really comes down to: - How complex your chosen image is - Any extra finesse you'd like to add, say, if it's intended as a gift for someone - How speedy you are! At MasterPeace we practice mindful painting, so we really don't want you to rush, let it take the time it wants to take. And to enable you to relax: we send you home with all the paints & brushes you use in your class to keep, so that you can add any final touches from home, free of charge, should you need. If you'd rather come back to us: you can return for another class, or sign up for a Freestyle session, that's 90 minutes of independent painting for just £10.
Can I leave my painting at MasterPeace?
Some guests choose to leave their paintings with us in between visits, which is our pleasure. We do advise to do so at your own risk... it is an operational art school and paint explosions are definitely a thing! We will keep your piece for a maximum of two weeks unless you get in touch with us. We wouldn't recommend this option if you're very attached to your creation... instead, we'd help you blow-dry your painting so you can take it home with you on the same day.
What is the best way to get to Masterpeace?
If coming from Victoria train station, head through the main railway station and take the Coach Station exit right next to Lush. Our studio is in Eccleston yards, a two minute walk away. When walking through the yards, you can find the studio on the left, with the huge gold Hand of Fatima design in the window.
What is the cancellation policy?
For regular classes, you can cancel up to 48 hours before your class. You will receive a full refund or you can opt to reschedule your class. For private classes, these bookings are non-refundable / re-schedulable as they require us to cancel our pre-existing classes to make space for them.

Lovely experience and would love to go again. Peaceful and fun!
Oliver Davey - 5 June 2022
A very special space where you can truly un-wind and enjoy the therapeutic nature of painting. The class teacher was very helpful and the mini projectors help make a flattering masterpiece in the time. Would highly recommend.
Hyejin - 1 June 2022
It was really peaceful time! My first painting class in London! I really enjoyed the time. Thank you for the wonderful class.
Millie Hindley - 8 May 2022
An amazing experience. Super easy for beginners and a lot of fun. Loved it immensely. The best bits was the atmosphere, support and little extra bits. We were allowed to take our paints and brushes with us to finish off at home which was great too!
Chau WHITEHEAD - 7 May 2022
A lovely experience, very relaxing and it was so helpful having a tutor to guide us on how to approach the painting. Highly recommend!
Maureen Hickey - 4 May 2022
I visited Masterpeace with my friend yesterday. We received a very warm welcome when we arrived and we were mentored by the lovely Grace. Just a great space to be creative, and so peaceful! Thank you, we’ll be back.
Parth Zaveri - 30 April 2022
Really good fun, lovely teacher who helped lots. Defo recommend for all skill levels Inc beginners like myself!
Tony Patterson - 27 April 2022
Not even one star. We couldn't make the workshop due to a tube suspension exactly when we were travelling. An unforeseeable problem and impossible to rectify. MasterPeace has subsequently been money-grabbing about the problems and shown nothing in way of genuine compassion about a 40th birthday celebration ruined. I'll never use them again and would advise anyone else against it. If something goes wrong, don't expect them to be understanding or helpful.
Beatrice Farrer - 25 April 2022
A wonderful, creative and calming event for a hard-working team! Thank you!
Tariq Islam - 25 April 2022
First time and loved it. Taught how to paint a selected photo, I chose one of my children and with some guidance turned out quite well - proudly showed the family. The setting, tunes and people made for a really nice experience

Shân - 19 April 2022
Lovely way to spend a few hours. Really relaxed and fun - with just the right amount of guidance.
Andrew McMath - 19 April 2022
A wonderful 90’ of a lesson in empowerment with Katie. Essentially only a positive experience and keeping the paints and brushes to finish at home is much appreciated. Thank you Katie
Caroline Stocks - 10 April 2022
Absolutely outstanding class. Super relaxing and fun. Calming, encouraging and supportive teacher. I don’t have much artistic talent but I ended up with a piece of art by the end of the class that I am really proud of.
Gautam Murgai - 4 April 2022
Grace was amazing, we really enjoyed our session and learned so much! Will certainly recommend to all of our friends and come back!
Karen Kilroy - 4 April 2022
Had such a great time!
Anya Parmar - 1 April 2022
amazing experience! im a complete painter beginner and with the help of the projector and guidance i actually painted something im really proud of. and the studio was beautiful with super relaxing music. thank you!
Eleanor Sibley - 19 March 2022
One of the best classes I have ever been to. The studio is amazing and the art teacher was incredible. They really teach you to unleash your creativity & make you think anything is possible! Would higy recommend
Mark - 14 March 2022
Great session and wonderful instructor and relaxing experience. Was really good! Only 2 main suggestions stopping me from 5 stars: 1) Place was harder to find than I thought - it needs better signage - I asked many local shops and no-one seemed to know - confusingly it is near a restuarant that uses a large "M" for their logo so easy to walk past it thinking it is restuarant 2) The instructions said to bring our smartphones with images ready to paint but did not mention if you had an Android that you would need to email your picture and then burrow an iphone which took a good 10-15 mins out of the class to faff with. Would have been good if we sent our pics before the class so more time went to the paint
Lea - 13 March 2022
Super fun class, very cute atmosphere with chocolates, drinks and music while we paint. Highly recommend!😊
Alice Wilton - 10 March 2022
Our second time with Masterpeace and I could not recommend them more highly! Everyone I dealt with was very helpful and made our experience very enjoyable. We went after work and the setting and set up made it very relaxed and sociable. Thank you very much - I'm sure you'll be seeing us again!!
Sarah Burnett-Moore - 27 February 2022
For the past two and a half years Zena and Masterpeace have really been taking me on a creative journey where I have expanded my skills. WFH has made me feel the need to get out of the house to find some mindfulness and this is the perfect space to do that.
Jay - 25 February 2022
Great studio and teacher. Very therapeutic. Enjoyable experience.
Kris Gitlin - 20 February 2022
Class was great! We loved it!
Liana - 20 February 2022
What a lovely fun way to spend and evening with my evening with my two daughters! We each chose a photo to paint, having the image projected onto the canvas was fantastic and really helped produce a rather impressive painting along with the painting advice from the art teacher :)
Angus Roberts - 18 February 2022
Viola was absolutely amazing. She had such a wonderful energy and was patient, inspiring and helpful when coaching. We had such a lovely evening and will definitely be back

Lauren Bouch - 9 February 2022
It was a dream!! Such a lovely atmosphere and coach :)
Carly Blackwell - 7 February 2022
I visited Masterpeace with my mum for a coached session with Alma. We throughly enjoyed the experience, Alma was fantastic-really patient with our lack of skills but encouraged our creativity and had lots of helpful tips to make the most out of our masterpieces. The studio was a really nice environment to relax into the painting, throughly enjoyed the whole experience, will look forward to coming back. Thank you :-)

Laurel Waldron - 12 January 2022
I love this studio. Having not painted since school I visited for the first time two years ago and astounded myself with what I achieved in a short class. Second time round it was just as enjoyable. MasterPeace will make an artist out of anyone; can't recommend it highly enough.

Mithilaa Senthivel - 6 December 2021
It was a lot of fun, and had very good support and teaching. She was an experienced artist and very friendly. We were lucky since just the 2 of us were there and so got very direct hands on teaching. Loved it and the place it is in is also very nice. Would definitely go again.
Becky - 5 December 2021
Such a fantastic Saturday afternoon! Alma was great and super helpful! I would definitely recommend the class! Thank you so much!

Grace was very friendly and helpful. A very relaxing hour and a half in which I managed to produce something half decent! Would recommend. A fun way to spend a lunchtime. I’ll be booking another session soon.
Melanie Pilgrim - 25 November 2021
Lovely venue and teacher and, although the class wasn't quite what I expected, it was very enjoyable. I would go again.
Katherine Wheatley - 20 November 2021
What a wonderful, relaxing way to spend time together and create something creative together. I booked this as a birthday treat for three of us and we had a lovely evening with Alma. We learned new skills and have a little set of art materials to complete our work at home. Thank you 💚
Serene Toh - 15 November 2021
I had such a wonderful experience at this class with Alma! It was extremely relaxing and fun, and I learnt a lot about acrylic painting. Alma is so talented and patient! She has a magical touch and helped me create a lovely piece of art within a short period of time. I would definitely do this again.
James Berentsen - 15 November 2021
Nice studio and location. Improved my art skills with individual attention.

Another fantastic class! I Loved being coached by Grace. It was so relaxing and I got lost in the painting. And I’m so proud of my creation!! Thank you again Masterpeace x
Karishma Omachi - 30 October 2021
A fantastic experience. Alma was knowledgeable, warm and went above and beyond to cater to us! I left with lots of resources to complete my piece and lots of useful techniques to try out. I will be back again soon and often! Thank you
Simon Ayling - 29 October 2021
I had an awesome time! I’m not naturally creative but Alma was very patient and encouraging whilst providing a really calm and engaging environment!
Astrid Montuire - 25 October 2021
I enjoyed my experience. I believe it’s a very good opportunity to reconnect with your creative side. The only thing i would say is that, personally, I found the session a bit too short and I felt like rushing at the end. Maybe having some options in terms of length would be a good idea.
Madalena Andrade - 24 October 2021
It was great fun, the place and materials were excellent and Scott was lovely but it was too short!
Katrin - 19 October 2021
We had the most amazing time at our first MasterPeace class. It was both relaxing and a lot of fun! Have already booked my next class 😃

Graham - 30 September 2021
A moment of joy and achievement was captured forever with the help of Masterpeace
A. Gould - 21 September 2021
We loved our painting experience with Alma, it was a well organised fun session. There were three of us, ( two non painters), who were made to feel at ease and helped when needed. A great enjoyable and relaxing experience for us all and our paintings weren’t too bad either ! Thank you
Sofia Leventis - 16 September 2021
Wonderful array of materials, the space is lovely and the painting was a very relaxing activity. Five stars!
Ali Amin - 30 August 2021
Alma was a really great teacher. We had so much fun at this class and it's great for beginners. The venue is really nice, we're given all the equipment we need and were even given some paints and brushes to finish our paintings at home which was very nice. Alma made it really fun and interesting and I would highly recommend this class.
Patricia Jimenez - 27 August 2021
Loved it!
Marion - 23 August 2021
Excellent class to decompress and meet new people. The GF brownie, drinks and art teacher were fantastic. A great after work activity to unleash your creativity
Aamir Ahmad - 21 August 2021
What an amazing time we had! Alma was super nice and so attentive. Gave us so much positive feedback and encouragement and we learnt lots of amazing techniques. She was wonderful and the studio was a great space to create our artworks A fantastic evening that I cannot recommend enough.

A truly fantastic way to spend a Sunday evening

A wonderful art class in a beautiful setting. A very talented instructor who gave a lot of great tips throughout the session. Complementary drinks and snacks provided too. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a fun and wholesome activity!
Angela Cole - 1 August 2021
We loved it, it was a very relaxing and welcoming atmosphere and the light technique used was easy to follow. Thank you!
Lee Kurt - 16 July 2021
I had a private lesson with zena (not intentional),it was great fun! The stools weren't comfortable but she got me a chair from the restaurant near by and gave me some cushions too. The studio looks very inviting, the atmosphere and the company added to the expiernce. I didn't manage to finish my work but I will definitely come again. (Beverages and snacks and given too which is an added bonus)
Rebecca - 5 July 2021
We had a lovely time at Masterpeace! The masterclass was really calming, creative and enjoyable. Alma was a great teacher. I’m so pleased with the outcome of my painting. The one tiny thing I would change was the stools we sat on were quite uncomfortable. If you have any back or hip problems you might struggle a bit!
Nikita Mittman - 5 July 2021
We had the best time learning techniques and creating our own paintings! Alma was such a lovely and helpful artist and very talented ! Only suggestion would be to have a wider selection of paint brushes. Thank you!
Iliana Fanidi - 30 June 2021
the place is beautiful, and the instructor was amazing, very relaxed and helpful! Would recommend and will go again!
Anonymous - 20 June 2021
Enjoyed the class and I thought the teacher was very encouraging, but I thought the classes could have been slightly longer than 90 minutes, to give us more time to finish the painting. The session was well integrated with technology, although it primarily catered for iPhones/Apple devices, which was slightly frustrating - some time was taken setting up my gear with my android phone. The venue was fantastic and overall, an enjoyable experience!
Charlotte Shearer - 14 June 2021
Teacher was brilliant, studio space was awesome, such a great environment for letting go and being creative. Great experience all round, would recommend!
BC - 13 June 2021
We had such a lovely time, the teacher was great and we had a wonderful experience.
Pete - 13 June 2021
I had a fantastic time at the coached experience with Rochelle. She was really knowledgeable and offered great tips on colour choices and techniques to try as I worked on my picture. I found the entire experience really engaging and relaxing. I reconnected with my creativity in a really freeing way and the time flew by! Would definitely go again.

Christina Hunt - 12 June 2021
My 11-year old daughter & I love coming to MasterPeace to spend some creative time together. We recently took our third class. Alma is lovely and is especially great with kids. We only wish the class was a little longer. By the time you really get into your “MasterPeace” the hour and a half is up. Would be great if the class was extended to 2 hours. We will definitely be back!
Leanne Holgate - 6 June 2021
Alma was a delightful leader and coach, getting us started, clearly how to set up the image on our canvases and helping us select colours and being encouraging. Highly recommend!
Anonymous - 2 June 2021
Great day I would suggest cutting the intro drawing freehand, and let painters start on time. As then you are waiting for people to arrive and it cuts into the time you have payed for. Overall I would come back again and enjoyed
Celine Rampa - 10 March 2021
I had such a warm welcome and thoroughly enjoyable experience with masterpeace. It's such a great concept of combining meditation with painting worth every penny!
Stuart Bryan - 10 March 2021
Enjoyed a great evening as a group with our teacher Zena, who was so encouraging and thoughtful. I thought I was a total beginner but came away with something quite special, would highly recommend! Thank you MasterPeace
Rebecca Latimer - 10 March 2021
One of the best evening classes I’ve done in London! It’s an amazing activity for beginners or advanced students, welcoming people to come and relax, switch off and to do something different with their time. I’d highly recommend this class and will definitely be back for another one.
Rebecca Bosworth - 10 March 2021
Harriet Gillet led a fantastic mindful painting class. The atmosphere was so calming and Harriet’s guided meditation and painting tips were wonderful. I look forward to my next class with her at MasterPeace. Thank you.
Guy Fox-Andrews - 10 March 2021
Had a wonderfully relaxing and creative class taught by Romy Elliott. A great way to unwind and clear your mind after a days work. Will definitely be going back.
Nora Hassanaien - 10 March 2021
This space is wonderful! Really great iea!!! I booked a group session with Sophia who was very welcoming and talented. The space itself is beautiful and it is a blessing to be able to switch off and play with paints for a while. The snacks were also delicious - I thoroughly recommend this as an alternative thing to do around London, even if you are someone who struggles to draw stick people. For those who are low on income too they do a once a week 'Karma' class which is donation based
lauren a - 10 March 2021
Expect something totally different to any art class you've been before. The whole experience from beginning to end has been meticulously thought out to ensure you have the most relaxing and beneficial time. It's the first time I have experienced meditation and art working together, which worked so harmoniously with the space. Little touches like the cheese & honey with figs, the prosecco and the mini projectors make this a unique experience – and of course the teachers and team behind it add all the encouragement to let yourself go and enjoy the process. Thank you to all involved!

An amazing, creative way to relax and unwind for an hour and a half in a beautiful setting, along with some delicious snacks and Prosecco. So impressed with the class teacher, Katie, who made us feel instantly welcome, encouraged us to explore our creative side and taught us tips and tricks to make our paintings even better. Excited to go back again soon.
minnie badenoch - 10 March 2021
It was an amazing experience and quite a novel way of spending time with friends in an informal setting, but also getting something out of it ie coming home with a painting which was a whole lot of fun attempting to do! The class was well structured beginning with a small meditation to help let go the stresses of the day, and get the creative juices flowing! The Art was so much fun, and 90 mins just whizzed by. I would sign up again in a heartbeat. Well done all of you at Masterpeace, I am impressed!!

Sam Matanle - 10 March 2021
Incredible evening, can’t recommend it enough. Having not painted in probably 8 years it nicely reignited a passion. Our teacher Will was a highlight, he made it a relaxed and judgement free environment and gave the perfect level of advice to ensure that my painting wasn’t as terrible as it could’ve been! The mindfulness is a good addition as well to make sure I left feeling relaxed AF.
Lara Robinson - 10 March 2021
MasterPeace is a wonderful new idea! I absolutely loved getting creative in a lovely relaxed and calm environment. It was such a great way to unwind after the busy working day, I left feeling inspired and wanting to go back!
Amelia Voss - 10 March 2021
Such a lovely mindful evening of painting with Katie B! X
Emma Cole - 10 March 2021
Masterpeace is good for the soul. Lovely atmosphere, really enjoyed the mindfulness and I ended up producing something I am rather proud of. Special mention to my teacher Lara, I think you have brought the unknown artist out in me! I will definitely be going back. Highly recommend.
Alex Gruz - 10 March 2021
Attended my first painting class ever and it was totally amazing! My tutor Jake was mega knowledgable, friendly and patient (his painting are insane btw), the same can be said about people running the space. The skill level was extremely varied, but I never felt intimidated. Really loved it, I'm definitely coming back!
Nick Corby - 10 March 2021
had my first art class at MasterPeace. I did not know I could paint! Great coaching from Sofia and a wonderful experience. I left with my framed picture.
Diala Lada - 10 March 2021
I loved every second I spent here! I booked a beginners painting class with Marianne. Marianne, Zena, Georgie and the rest of the crew were so welcoming and warm. They thought of every little detail to make the experience so peaceful and heart warming. The space was stunning and really added to the experience. We started off with a calming mindful practise and then moved on to some warm up sketching exercises. After which we dived in to painting. Marianne was so helpful and patient. I'm a complete beginner and not once did I feel insecure in any way. I had such an enjoyable and mindful morning and I'm feeling restored and energized after just an hour and a half painting. They've really encouraged me to be more creative. Looking forward to hanging my painting in my living room. I can't wait to go back for the calligraphy classes! :)
Johan Moller - 10 March 2021
Thank you for such an amazing experience. I did attend a beginners painting class in this beautiful newly open studio. This is something I will recommend everyone to attend, painting truly bring you calmness and make you forget about everyting out there. I will for sure come back another time for another class but also to visit this beautiful studio and the friendly owners.
grania o'brien - 10 March 2021
I attended a painting workshop at MasterPeace studios taught by Marianne, and it was the most brilliant way to spend a morning. The venue is gorgeous - filled with light and a wonderful, relaxing place to be. The class, too, was brilliant. I haven't painted in about 15 years, and following Marianne's expert tuition (and some clever techy hacks!) managed to create something that I was proud of. Marianne also gave us some wonderfully helpful tips on looking at colour and on using acrylic paints. If you're looking to brush up on your painting or learn a new skill, I highly recommend both Marianne and MasterPeace.

Had a wonderfully relaxing and creative class taught by Romy Elliott. A great way to unwind and clear your mind after a days work. Will definitely be going back.
Rebecca Bosworth - 10 March 2021
Harriet Gillet led a fantastic mindful painting class. The atmosphere was so calming and Harriet’s guided meditation and painting tips were wonderful. I look forward to my next class with her at MasterPeace. Thank you.
Rebecca Latimer - 10 March 2021
One of the best evening classes I’ve done in London! It’s an amazing activity for beginners or advanced students, welcoming people to come and relax, switch off and to do something different with their time. I’d highly recommend this class and will definitely be back for another one.
Stuart Bryan - 10 March 2021
Enjoyed a great evening as a group with our teacher Zena, who was so encouraging and thoughtful. I thought I was a total beginner but came away with something quite special, would highly recommend! Thank you MasterPeace
Sophie Beardsworth - 10 March 2021
MasterPeace gives you the most incredible, calming experience after a busy day; it's rare that one actually gives themselves enough time to paint, or express any creativity, and this studio was just lovely. The instructors were helpful and friendly - we had Harriet - without being didactic, and the nibbles and bubbles were an added bonus. Painting wise, we used a light box to trace the outline of a photo, enabling you to focus on the activity of painting itself. I came away with a framed painting that makes me smile every time I look at it. I highly recommend this experience and am planning my next visit!
Susu Elliott - 10 March 2021
After a busy day it was a wonderfully relaxing and fun evening. The venue is lovely and Romy was so encouraging. A very happy experience and I will definitely come again.
Emma Ramzan - 10 March 2021
Fab time at Masterpeace, I highly recommend for getting creative and relaxed all at once. Having not painted for over 25 years (and not being that creative) I found the tech hacks super helpful and makes for a great way to paint. Teachers are really friendly and welcoming and the space is beautiful!
Teddy Walker - 10 March 2021
I had such a magical time, thank you everyone at MasterPeace! Can't wait to be back! The whole evening yesterday was beautiful. It's such a wonderful idea! The studio is stunning, it's the perfect space to recalibrate after work and connect creatively. The details are A*, from the beautiful gowns to the prosecco and fun, classy mezze. The materials and paint provided are super high quality and easy to work with. Also, it’s lovely to see the MasterPeace team’s work on the walls to (as inspiration!) My favourite thing about the class is the guided meditation. Our instructor, Madeleine, really sets up a space of tranquillity that encourages a really focussed mediation. From this place of calm, starting the ‘masterpeace’ felt unintimidating and I felt at ease to experiment and explore. Throughout the class, she’s both funny and receptive to the classmates and I felt super supported by her knowledge, especially of colour. I will definitely be recommending this to.. any one, everyone, all of em!
Sue Gillett - 10 March 2021
Mindful painting with Harriet was awesome! Everyone at Masterpeace was friendly and welcoming; bubbles & nibbles were a lovely start to the session whilst aromatic scents and cleverly guided meditation created a relaxed atmosphere and mind-set for enjoying focused creativity, which I rarely make time for - it's easy to forget how therapeutic it is playing with paint!! I left feeling rejuvenated and elated. Harriet was brilliant at giving well timed, helpful advice on colour and composition, and so I came away with a piece that I loved making and was really pleased with. I'm looking forward to coming again.
Amy Duke - 10 March 2021
A beautiful environment and a talented team providing a truly chilled creative outlet. I thoroughly enjoyed creating my artwork from a favourite photo, loved the zen vibes, great music, delicious treats from Tart London and a cheeky glass of fizz too. This is the perfect gift for a friend, or also a fab idea for a group celebration... well worth a try :)
Kate McClean - 10 March 2021
Couldn't recommend more! Lara's class was so lovely, she teaches you all the basics and lets you experiment with paint and pencil. It's so rare you give yourself time to pick up a paint brush and be creative. I found it so therapeutic after a stressful day at work to completely clear my mind! Also, accompanied with some DELICIOUS proseco. What more could you want for a Tuesday eve!
Amanda Hall-Davis - 10 March 2021
Attended an art class with acclaimed artist Victoria Obolensky - it was relaxing, fun and an informative new learning curve for this craft. A brilliant setting & meditation added to the whole experience... Well worth it
Sarah Randall - 10 March 2021
A totally enchanting experience. Loved every moment. Can’t wait to come back :)
Celine Rampa - 10 March 2021
I had such a warm welcome and thoroughly enjoyable experience with masterpeace. It's such a great concept of combining meditation with painting worth every penny!
Katie Mulle - 10 March 2021
Absolutely amazing - we arrived to a beautiful spread of cheeses, fruits and nibbles and an immediate offer of prosecco in the intimate and stylish studio. The class itself was fabulous - their unique approach allows even the artistically challenged (myself included) to create a really lovely piece to take away. It was wonderfully cathartic and relaxing. And on top of that we were treated to free flowing prosecco - how can you go wrong? Great to do a class as a big group as we were, but would be equally great to take a class alone or with one or two friends. Will definitely be back and look forward to being welcomed by Zena, our incredible host!
Seok-yoon Yeo - 10 March 2021
Friendly and non-judgemental creative outlet, perfect for beginners and your third date! - Susie & Franky
Conor McCutcheon - 10 March 2021
Really enjoyable afternoon at Masterpeace! Very positive atmosphere, great Prosecco and easily the best zebra I’ve ever painted. We’ll be back!
Hannah Harries - 10 March 2021
Thank you so much Lara Robinson ❤️! We went to masterpeace to celebrate a friends birthday. The majority of us have not done art since we were 13, so we were a bit nervous. However, Lara brought us back to basics with meditation and painting skills, then we got to create our masterpeace’s (which are now hanging proudly in our home!). The whole experience was relaxing, invigorating and fun and I will be back! Thank you so much once again, what a lovely evening activity. Highly recommend!
Ella Hartley - 10 March 2021
This is the best. Couldn’t recommend more. Great for a Birthday, or any way to celebrate. But also just for some chill and paint. Lara is a dream. Do it.
Larna B - 10 March 2021
Absolutely loved my class with Lara. She is an amazingly talented artist and put on the best evening for us all! Very relaxing but also a lot of fun finding my inner artist. Couldn't recommend this more!
Marina Nicholson - 10 March 2021
Absolutely amazing class. Not only was the space a perfect, calm and creative space. The class itself was more than I could have expected. Starting with some drawing techniques and meditation to get us in the right mindset after a busy day rushing around at work and then while painting Harriet gave excellent advice and attention to everyone. Loved it! Left feeling in a better headspace and with a lovely painting of my dog. If you live a busy city life or are just looking to improve your painting skills please visit Masterpeace.
Mariia Iakovenko - 10 March 2021
Truly amazing studio! Never painted before, although by the end of the session I finished my piece of art, framed it and took it home same evening! Professional teachers, beautiful interior, super relaxed, 100% must go!
scallan 27 - 10 March 2021
They have fully mastered holding space for total relaxation and focused creativity. I was surprised to hear they had only been open for a few weeks! Loved the guided meditation beforehand. Bonus tips on intuitive painting and encouragement from a very talented Georgie who is just so darling and inspiring x Thanks for everything.
Mike pickett - 10 March 2021
Mindful, creative, incredibly fun.. are just three words of many that could be used to describe MasterPeace. Co-founders Zena and Georgie have created something very special with this mindful painting studio, complete with Prosecco and yummy nibbles, and of course an array of incredibly talented, fun artists who with their teaching help to make the whole experience all the more brilliant. A must visit!
Julian Osborne - 10 March 2021
A really beautiful studio space. Myself and Helen visited Thursday evening for an art class on fundamentals of painting and mindfulness. Will held our 1.5 hours class, taking us through some fun and interactive drawing exercises, followed by some really relaxing meditation that soon lead onto us being let loose on our own painting. Will was a brilliant teacher and host. He guided us through the painting basics, kept conversation between everyone flowing whilst importantly keeping our Prosecco topped up. Can’t really complain with that can ya! Would highly recommend checking out this space and seeing what it’s all about. This was our first visit to MasterPeace studios and won’t be our last
Will it Make the Boat Go Faster? - 10 March 2021
Our entire company went to this venue for a team building day. We were immediately welcomed with food/drink and split off into two separate groups (more experienced painters downstairs, beginners upstairs) and the downstairs group were able to project an image from their mobile phone onto a canvas whilst the upstairs group chose from a wide selection of images to reconstruct. Zena and her team were extremely kind, encouraging and helpful and we had an amazing time doing something different as a group and would recommend it to any company wanting to bring their teams together outside of the office. Thanks !!
Fran Denny - 10 March 2021
Had a really lovely time at Georgie M's class last week - such a great thing to do on your own or with friends, v therapeutic!
James Elwes - 10 March 2021
Fabulous evening, thank you guys! Highly recommended.
Shirin L - 10 March 2021
Had a mindful art coached session with Shehana last Sunday and it was wonderful! The projectors are a great way to guide you as you get creative with mixing colours and Shehana was calm and helpful giving useful tips. I really enjoyed the guided meditation at the beginning. As the beginner I was much happier with what my final piece looked like than I expected and I have her to thank for that. The studio is also a beautiful space!
Ammen Gill - 10 March 2021
A relaxing and peaceful way to spend my Sunday afternoon. Shehana was brilliant at sharing her knowledge and giving me inspiration. I cannot wait to go back!
Mehdi Doghri - 10 March 2021
I booked MasterPeace for my team’s Christmas offsite this year and we absolutely loved it. We were each invited to paint a photo of our choice. The light boxes are brilliant for beginners like us, they made it feel as though we could all have a go and not be intimidated by not knowing where to start. Some of us haven’t painted since we were children. The Prosecco and nibbles are a really nice touch. The space is beautiful, being sat in a gallery means there’s inspiration wherever you look. Romy our teacher (and a talented artist herself) was so professional, welcoming and encouraging. We all left with framed paintings and felt proud of our efforts ! A lovely alternative way to get to know our team even better. Next we want to come back with our son! Would 100% recommend
Vivian Christogianni - 10 March 2021
Great art class experience! Shehana was a great teacher! Loved it, we'll definitely come back!
Kyan Pucks - 10 March 2021
A truly wonderful experience. Shehana was just brilliant - so kind, incredibly talented and had such a soothing presence. The location was perfect and all the staff delightful. Can’t wait to go back!
Bethany Hargreaves - 10 March 2021
A lovely calm, creative space. Harriet was an awesome instructor and was happy to help with a few tips. For a total beginner I was able to relax and just enjoy the process. Would totally recommend to anyone.
Miss Pizzacalla - 10 March 2021
Fab experience and wonderful venue. The staff are so helpful and lovely and the space is very tastefully done and great for getting creative!
Leanne Nevins - 10 March 2021
What a wonderful place. Lovely staff, great teacher, pretty venue! Such a wonderful concept. Time spent getting lost in your own thoughts, in a calming environment whilst painting a personal image. Will definitely be back :-)
93tamba - 10 March 2021
Had SUCH a wonderful time painting at MasterPeace Art School. If I'm honest, I was really nervous about going because I haven't been to an art class since university. Even then I hadn't ever attended a class outside of my time in education because because it was outside of my comfort zone. I felt so welcome and the space was cosy and intimate. We went through a guided meditation before our main art making and all of my anxieties, in that moment, softened. I had to keep reminding myself to paint because I was enjoying the conversation too much!
Karina Greenhalgh - 10 March 2021
Had a lovely relaxed afternoon doing a class with my sister. It’s great using the projectors to guide, the studio is beautiful and Snehana who led our class was ace. Definitely recommend it, we’ll be back again ☺️.
Maria Anastasiou - 10 March 2021
A great introduction to painting. I feel encouraged to do more! Romilly was an excellent facilitator. The space and the size of the class was great too; a really friendly environment. Such a lovely way to spend a Friday evening.
Marie Potter - 10 March 2021
My boyfriend booked for the two of us to do a Mindful Art Class for 2 as a birthday treat and I couldn't think of a better place to go. The studio is friendly, welcoming and so relaxing from the moment you walk in. You could be anywhere in the world and forget that you are actually in London. We had a lovely afternoon relaxing, painting and drinking prosecco and hope to come back to finish off our paintings! I 100% recommend spending at least one session here. I have been recommending it to all of my family and friends too!
Harry Stimpson - 10 March 2021
Georgie was incredible, everyone has to go
Scott Watson - 10 March 2021
Masterpeace is a haven in the heart of stressful London. It creates a blissful atmosphere for you to explore your creativity no matter who you are. The team are inviting with positive energy. The food and drink delicious. But the art is the most unique because every piece is special, no matter at what level the hand that made it is at! Namaste 🙏🏻
Victoria Watts - 10 March 2021
I went along to MasterPeace for a singles evening. I was a little apprehensive but I had such a wonderful evening. Such friendly, warm hosts and the other singles were a lovely group. I would definitely go again and hope they do another singles night soon. Victoria
Inez fitton - 10 March 2021
MasterPeace is such a welcoming, peaceful environment in which to unwind whilst engaging in a calming activity suited to each individuals ability. We had a family session covering a very wide range of ages which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Support and advice from staff was invaluable helping everyone to relax, laugh and enjoy. Excellent work MasterPeace
Guy KW - 10 March 2021
Had a very enjoyable session with Jack working on an acrylic study of one of my fave photos. Helpful, patient guidance on how to paint, as well as a really lovely group of interesting people, and prosecco! Would def go back, but probs pick a simpler image as 90 mins is shorter than you think..!
Elhaam Hashim - 10 March 2021
We had a lovely time painting in Shehanas class. She make us (first time painters) feel relaxed and encouraged us to paint pictures from our own inspiration whilst providing useful tips. Snacks and drinks were provided and Shehana even brought a cake as we were celebrating a birthday. I would highly recommend - we will definitely be returning!
Rashmi Narayan - 10 March 2021
Really fun experience with just letting go and painting with a focus on mindfulness. Love staff and instructors too! Highly recommend.
Peter Bristowe - 10 March 2021
It was a brilliant evening combining art and mindfulness and superbly curated by Lara. I’m definitely returning! Peter

Kirsten Graham - 10 March 2021
Amazing class with the new instructor Scott Watson . What a lovely day at MasterPeace.
Ben Roberts - 10 March 2021
We had the best time at our first class today - Mindful Painting: Coached. They’re such a lovely team and their newest instructor, Scott, was awesome. Definitely going again!
Jo Clayton - 10 March 2021
Such a lovely experience! Restricted the class to the six of us : family birthday celebration: food, birthday cake, prosecco. Studio has great ambiance. Professional and friendly team. No pressure. We all thoroughly enjoyed and were absolute beginners but all ended up with our unique piece of art! Thankyou would highly recommend. Can’t wait to see the pictures!
Sarah Blair - 10 March 2021
Attended a mindful painting session here, we used light boxes to recreate a photo we brought along digitally. The session was relaxing, enjoyable and I'm really happy with my painting given I haven't painted in years! I've just ordered an artkit as a gift for someone else during the lockdown.
Marisa Quartin - 10 March 2021
An amazing space to really express yourself. I was invited to attend the pilot covid secure class and can honestly say I feel comfortable with all the measures put in place. Excited to return continuously this summer!! Thanks Zena x
Hayley Wood - 10 March 2021
I took part in a coached session after the studio reopened to be Covid secure. It was great fun and a I learnt a lot. The whole experience had been well thought out to comply with the new measures and you can take all your own materials home to carry on painting. Highly recommended!
Lucinda Hawthorn - 10 March 2021
We had a great painting session with Zena today, it was excellent fun and even the no-hopers in our group came away with wall-worthy paintings! Zena was an excellent teacher and put us all at ease. Will definitely be back for more.
Nigel Hawthorn - 10 March 2021
6 of us had a wonderful time producing our own artworks (based on photos) with lots of laughs and help and advice from Zena. Those of us who started with less art experience produced some of the best pieces. Highly recommended for a group or as an individual to meet others.
Victoria Macdonald - 10 March 2021
My friends and I enjoyed the most wonderful evening due to the impeccable service by our Masterpeace host. Our painting experience was fun but focussed, graciously supporting our creative efforts with consummate kindness and insight.
Caroline Chang - 10 March 2021
I highly recommend Graces’s Mindful Painting coached class on Saturdays at 4:30pm as a really fun and good value experience. Grace is calm, friendly and attentive. She creates a warm environment which puts everyone at ease (some having not painted in years) and gets you engaged. She also gives really good art tips. Everyone was really pleased with what they painted during the class and left feeling uplifted and accomplished.
Attah Junior - 10 March 2021
Great space and Vibe! Had mindful art class with Grace as an instructor and loved the atmosphere. She really made an effort to introduce everyone and I felt really comfortable making new friends. This was a really great way to unwind after work. Will definitely book again to catch up with friends and suggest for work events.
MaryHurston Zuelke - 10 March 2021
I took Romy Elliot's drawing series class, and it was an absolute joy! You don't have to be a pro to get something out of the lessons. Romy taught us skills to create really fun and often humorous animal drawings. Very well done!
Isaac - 26 December 2020
amazing, so relaxing
Marta - 12 December 2020
Fantastic painting class in the lovely artistic studio near Victoria. There were a lot of adjustments to make it very Covid-secure space, which was really great to see.
Isaac - 20 October 2020
Amazing class, will for sure do again
Lena - 18 October 2020
It was a great experience. I loved it.
Isaac - 6 October 2020
Amazing class, really relaxed, fun and interesting, must-do for anyone!!
AAKRITI - 20 September 2020
This was an incredible experience! The studio is beautiful and we all really enjoyed. Didn't realise where time passed. Will definitely go back for another workshop and highly recommend it!
AAKRITI - 13 September 2020
Amazing experience - we were guided throughout the class and felt really relaxed and calm after it. Would highly recommend it!
Meg - 6 August 2020
Absolutely loved this class and would definitely recommend. I was initially a bit nervous due to my lack of experience/talent with painting, however Romy was a fabulous and encouraging teacher who was there to answer any questions and offer advice. We started the class with a few quick mindfulness activities to get us relaxed and before I knew it I was so absorbed in the painting process. All of the thoughts and worries that were swirling through my mind prior to the class had vanished. I only wish the class went for longer - time flew by! What a great experience in a very welcoming and peaceful environment :)
