Deaf Friendly Sessions


Pinot & Picasso have partnered with Deaf Connect to introduce deaf friendly sessions, providing an inclusive environment for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. With certified Auslan (Australian sign language) interpreters, these sessions foster an empowering artistic journey, allowing the deaf community to enjoy a traditional paint and sip session!

Fostering an accessible environment, deaf friendly sessions will have a focus on easy-to-achieve artworks and a relaxed experience to accommodate all participants. Sessions are held with low-level music, concise instructions, and one-on-one support throughout to ensure participants feel welcomed and valued. Interpreters will also facilitate effective communication during the paced session and will work with the artist to provide feedback throughout.

Together, we aim to provide a supportive and inspiring space where creativity knows no bounds!

To participate, reach out to your local Pinot & Picasso studio to organise a session.
