PopUp Painting invites you to unleash your creativity at one of its social painting experiences.

PopUp Painting was founded in 2013 with the mission of inspiring the inner artist in everyone, away from the gallery and classroom, making it easily accessible. They work with a number of different artists, all of whom create a relaxed environment where you can let loose your creativity with a glass of wine in one hand and a paint brush in the other!

Each workshop focuses on a different painting by one of the greats. Choose one that inspires you, from Van Gogh’s Starry Night to Banksy’s Girl With A Balloon, and let those creative juices run wild!

Really enjoyable taster painting session. Super social, super fun. Exactly the right way to "dabble" in painting. Thanks Obby!

I had a really fun evening. I am not usually arty and came along at the suggestion of a friend, but I am really glad I did. At the end of the class everyone had a pretty impressive painting to take home. All the supplies were provided and as a group we were taken through the steps one at a time. I would definitely recommend as something different to try out. Thanks guys!

Had such a brilliant evening! So proud of my picture (and I’m not arty at all), what a great way to spend a Friday. The team were super enthusiastic and patient...and fun! I’ll recommend this to everyone. Thank you!Iona

Such a fun evening!! Really thought the teacher was lovely and relaxed - I now want to do more painting for sure! Everyone has complimented my painting but main thing was feeling free to express on the canvas :-) Music was fun and atmosphere relaxed! Defo he back!

It was a really fun evening! Very informal painting session. Depending on how you feel, you can stick 100% to the instructors direction, or go off piste when you feel like it. The main guy described certain methods pretty well to get different effects, and more people wandering around during the session could help you directly if you wanted. I thought it had good pace for most of the evening, as we moved pretty methodically between different parts of the painting. However towards the end of the session, it felt a bit rushed which was a shame. We were focusing on a part with more detail and it would have been nicer to have more time on that, or even a little more time without instruction.

Really enjoyed the class and my painting came out better than I had anticipated - all through following the instructor. The small bites during the break were of good quality too. One thing that could have been improved was the speed in which the instructor was going. Also, the frame supporting the canvas was not that sturdy. Nevertheless, both members of staff were very friendly and helpful, and personally the class went well. I would definitely recommend this.

We really enjoyed the class! I'm incredibly bad in all painting and artistic stuff while my girlfriend is a pro but she never has the time to cultivate her passion. I found this class to be very entertaining and a perfect fit for people not talented like me or very creative and actually good. It's a funny experience that needs to be faced as a game / fun time in which the most important thing is to experiment and enjoy the journey more than the result. The team was really good at creating a good atmosphere with music, drinks and.. Paint! Super recommended to all

It was a fun workshop and I enjoyed the painting, however, compared to other painting classes I have been to via Obby, this class was very busy and it meant that I struggled to see and hear the instructor and there was limited guidance.

Really, really enjoyed the class. The atmosphere, venue, scheduling and hosts were fantastic. Thoroughly appreciated the music, drinks & snacks. In the spirit of socializing / neighborhood bonding (E20 event) I'd consider having a slightly longer pause in the middle of the session, or perhaps encouraging guests to arrive early/stay a little later to mix / finish their works of art, but appreciate there are constraints on time/returning the venue to it's original condition. Slight improvement could be the layout of the chairs/tables to foster more interaction amongst participants.

Very enjoyable evening. Really loved it. My only complaint is that it was advertised to end at 10pm but at 9.20pm was rushed to end. Felt cut short.

I had the best time at this painting class! It was easy enough to follow for people who don’t paint and everyone came out with great pictures to take home. Met some lovely people in my area and the bubbles and snacks were a great addition. 100% recommend this!

I booked this as I was in London for a weekend and looking for something a bit different that I could go to on my own. I've never been able to draw or paint and I haven't done any since I was at school, but I was interested in seeing how I got on now in a fun, unserious atmosphere. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would recommend it. People seemed to enjoy it too; there were a few groups of (mostly female) friends who'd come to celebrate birthdays or just have a different night out. The staff were really helpful and encouraging, and the venue (Brasserie Blanc) was really lovely and very accommodating. As a fun evening it was everything I wanted, but in fact it doesn't end there as I'm now going to buy some basic materials and start painting as a hobby.

Ok where to start... First, the place was very small; there wasn’t even space to put your booze next to canvas, and you could barely walk around the chairs. Second, it was the most stressful painting experience ever. I’ve tried similar events before with different organizers but this one was the least professional. The painting chosen was extremely detailed to finish in 2 hours already, and there were ‘deadlines’ set to finish each part of the painting. The instructor was constantly rushing everyone saying ‘last 10min to finish before the break’ or so and stressing everyone out. And obviously at the end of the class, none of us were happy with the outcome. No way we are going to another event from Popup Painting.

The class was really well organised: the materials were all laid out when we got there. The teachers were also very good at making everyone feel at ease with painting. They also conveniently broke down the steps to paint , so it was easy to do all the elements of the painting. The venue was very convenient and it was a good space for painting. There were about 10 of us on the day, but there was space for more.

Fun night: instructors have pointers on how to recreate a landscape, but also let people free to paint their own. Relaxed evening and a cool, different way to spend your Wednesday eve.

This was a fun class led by friendly and enthusiastic people. I was a bit disappointed by the choice of painting especially as I saw the previous group going home with a much nicer one.
