Your Teacher

As children, we love art/painting/creating but as we get older we forget how happy it makes us. It only takes one person to tell us we are no good and that's it! -we never do it again.

Jessa's goal is to remind people of the joy that art brings and the power it has to help you relax and gain confidence.

Jessa's style is to keep it simple. No fancy art lingo, easy shapes, bright colours and lots of encouragement. You may not have painted since school but you now have the right tools to…

I bought two places as a gift for my friends birthday. She said she couldn’t paint. But her painting was brilliant and we both enjoyed painting the Highland Cow.

Petra Reid - 4 February 2024
Great evening! Only thing that let it down was the venue layout. If you had your back to the host it was really difficult/uncomfortable to keep looking over your shoulder.

I had an absolutely amazing time last night painting the Highland cow. I had only previously done the online tutorials so it was daunting in person but we were made to feel so comfortable and given help and advise and were so happy with how it came out. Cant wait to come again

Don’t need to be able to draw or paint. Great instruction enabling a good result. Good fun.
Emma Tracey - 12 January 2023
Always love the paint classes. It amazes me how talented we all are. Have recommended this to work social club either as a social thing or as a team building challenge. Thought we could auction the paintings after for charity. 2 hours of bliss and laughter.
Alison Norum - 5 January 2023
A really relaxing way to spend the evening. Easy to follow instructions and a fun picture to take home.
Alexandra - 5 January 2023
Absolutely brilliant evening. Thoroughly enjoyed our first time at Paint n Sip. Very informative, relaxed and fun atmosphere. Definitely recommend. First time picked up a paint brush in almost 40 years. Even our “Highland Cows” looked pretty good.
Esther Kent - 5 January 2023
We painted the Highland Cow, it was such a great evening. Great tutor, and easy to follow. Our first time, but won't be the last. Thank you
Jessica Dalhuisen - 17 November 2022
Such an incredible experience! Went in extremely nervous as I have no artistic talent at all but I felt at ease straight away and everything was modelled and explained clearly. Will highly recommend and will definitely be back!
Sadie Bartosz-bowden - 8 September 2022
Absolutely brilliant! Charlotte was a great instructor and had a giggle along with us all too. Highly recommended to friends at work that then booked it to have a go!
Maria Rose - 8 September 2022
I had the most fantastic time. I went on my own as I’m new to Southsea and everyone was so warm and welcoming! It was nice to have some time to sit and be creative, have fun with it and no judgement! Fantastic atmosphere, brilliant teachers, if you’re contemplating doing it, do it - plus there’s the bonus of grabbing yourself a drink. What’s not to like :)
Sarah boxall - 5 August 2022
Great relaxing class, easy to follow,
Helen Hobman - 5 May 2022
What a great way to spend a Wednesday evening, I haven't picked up a brush since 1978 when I was at school and never used acrylics, it was amazing how quickly the painting came together, and when I glanced along the line of fellow artists it actually gave me goosebumps to see such amazing creations appearing before our very eyes, thank you for making me believe I can actually create a piece good enough to hang
YVETTE HILL - 5 May 2022
Very much enjoyed this, amazed my canvas actually looked like what it was supposed to. Clear tuition. Thankyou
Kelly Lim - 5 May 2022
Another fun evening with paint n chill. Beautiful venue and helpful instructor to help guide us through the painting. It’s both social and mindfulness of quality me time. Bonus with a beautiful unique peace of art to take home! Strongly recommended either just for self or friends or corporate team event.
Georgina Tapley - 5 May 2022
Great, really enjoyed it
Rebecca Carter - 5 May 2022
Lovely evening painting the Highland cow. Came away with a great painting while spending time in a great location and having some quality time with my daughter. Highly recommend for a fun evening.
Nicola Martenstyn - 27 April 2022
Brilliant evening out with some friends. Kat our art guru was fabulous and very patient and what seemed like an impossible task was made to look easy and achievable with step by step guidance. AWESOME.
Laura Neal - 17 April 2022
For a long while, my friend had been suggesting I accompany her to one of these events as she felt is was right up my boulevard. Well she was spot on. I spent a wonderful couple of hours just sitting with a large glass of red in one hand, paint brush in the other and following the very clear, step-by-step instructions. The atmosphere was fabulous, with really supportive and encouraging people running it. If you've never been before because you're worried your painting will look like it was done by a foot, then come along. It's not about the product, it's the journey, the company (I had such a laugh) and of course the wine. Best of all you leave with your own artwork! As a teacher I often feel tired and stressed but after this session I felt relaxed and accomplished 😌 Thank you Paint and Chill, I've already booked my next one!
Deborah Malcolm - 8 April 2022
Fabulous and fun evening. The painting turned out fabulous, and the instructions were easy to follow. Loved it and high recommend!
Julie Laws - 30 March 2022
Brilliant evening actually came away with a painting of a highland cow and this is someone who cannot draw so I was thrilled. Definitely recommend the experience.
Angela - 24 February 2022
2nd visit and it was brilliant evening again - so many laughs - thank you
Julie - 24 February 2022
