Treat yourself and your other half to a romantic night of painting and mindfulness during this portraiture masterclass.
Be coached by a professional artist as you work through your chosen portrait that is totally unique to you and your partner, using acrylic paint.
The class starts with pencil and paper based warm-up exercises to help you find your creative flow before moving onto your paintings.
Then, we invite you to select a photo on your smartphone, to paint. We'll connect you up to your personal projector, which will cast your image down onto your canvas board for you…
Things to remember
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. As you enter the yards go straight ahead and you'll see us on the left…
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 Covid Secure?

How have you adapted your classes for COVID-19?
For a full breakdown of all the extensive measures we've implemented to stay Covid Secure, head to our latest blog post - found in the footer of our main website.
A few minor points to mention for our regular guests who perhaps visited us pre-covid and are wondering what's changed:
- Our usual shareable bottles of Prosecco have been swapped for individual cans of red and white wine - this is to limit hand-to-hand (and bottle-to-glass) contact for now. Biodegradable cups are available. The wine selection is delicious, but we'll get back to bubbles as soon as we can!
-Our gorgeous cotton artist's kimonos have been temporarily swapped to biodegradable gowns. They're not quite as pretty but they get the job done, and they're kind to the planet too.
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.
