It is an artistic form of self-expression – instead of using words alone; you will be using various media and different art techniques to express your creativity.

YOUR TEACHER Merriment Atelier is an event company that offers paint and sip workshops, private paint parties, and corporate events. The concept of those events is simple: you paint something beautiful while sipping a lovely drink and have a wonderful time. As the company was founded by a professional wedding & event planner, all Merriment Atelier events have a touch of style and elegance. The painting is not the most basic element of the event. All workshops are created to deliver a complete experience made up of the activity, appropriate drinks, snacks, music, decorations, and so on. The events are led by guests, experienced hosts and professional artists. However, all workshops and events are offered as beginners classes. That means you won’t need any experience to be a guest of any of the Merriment Atelier paint parties. Most of the paintings are created under specific themes that craft the whole experience. For example, if you attend the Caribbean-themed paint party, you will “escape” for a couple of hours to a beautiful white sandy Caribbean beach, while holding in one hand a cold Pina Colada and a paintbrush in the other, listening to hot Latin music and having a wonderful time with friends or family. Merriment Atelier works with local artists who use a variety of interesting painting techniques. You can learn how to paint fur or feather while painting a portrait of your pet, or pop art techniques when painting your own selfie portrait, as well as the latest trend in painting - acrylic paint pouring. There are workshops for brides to be, newlyweds, first baby portrait painting, me and mummy painting, or family paint parties; as well as a special collection of Zen and Meditative painting. Merriment Atelier's mission is to make people fall in love with painting and to turn this activity into part of their lifestyle. Like the human body needs exercises and movement to be healthy and feel good, the soul and mind need moments of peace and emotional relaxation.
