  • ARTYPARTY Admit 1 - Banksy's 'Balloon Girl' - 1st drink free: $49.50

Social painting is coming to The Cross!

Artyparty has partnered with Southern Cross Garden Bar Restaurant to bring you the perfect night out. Join us at 6:30pm on Wednesday 12 September as we step you through painting 'Balloon Girl' by legendary graffiti artist Banksy. Grab your mates or a date and give art a go while enjoying drinks at this legendary and loved local pub.

Two Wellington artists will be there to step you through creating your very own masterpiece while you enjoy a drink or two from our private bar!

Artyparty is a fun 2 hour 'paint & drink' event for anyone who wants to give art a go.

Everyone has a creative side. Our Artyparty is a positive, safe place for you to get your art on while enjoying a drink with friends and family! Painters will be stepped-through and cheered along the way to completing their own masterpiece to take home at the end of the night.

$49.50 includes your first drink* (selection of wine, beer or non alcoholic options available), a 2-hour guided class from professional Wellington artists, use of all materials (easels, brushes, paint, protective apron) and a canvas to paint and take home and hang on the wall!

$1 per booking will also be donated to the local Inverlochy Art School, a registered charity.

Artyparty's format is as follows:
6:20 - 6:30pm
Arrive, get a drink and mingle (first drink is included in ticket price)

6:30pm - Painting begins
A professional artist steps the group through painting a simplified version of a famous painting or local scene. Compositions are designed to be completed by a beginner within the two-hour class time. All participants will take home a completed artwork! There will be plenty of time to ask questions and receive one-on-one help from us, local professional artists.

7:30pm - Breaktime (10 minutes)
Painters can buy drinks and nibbles, socialise and check out everybody’s artwork.

7:40pm - Painting continues
Painters will continue painting and complete their masterpieces on the night.

8:30pm - Wrap up and group photo.
