The King Has Arrived At Pinot and Picasso!

Elvis Presley Bendigo
The King of Rock and Roll is in the building! That’s right, Elvis Presley is our latest famous figures artwork to be added to our artwork gallery!

With the new Baz Luhrmann movie set to hit cinemas this month, it felt like the perfect time to pay homage to rock royalty and give our Picasso’s the man they’ve requested! 

Our ‘Elvis: The King’ is an artwork we know you Can’t Help Falling in Love with! It’s a colourful portrait that reflects Elvis perfectly – yellow for his creativity and incredible voice, green for his prosperity, blue for his confidence (who didn’t love his bedazzled jumpsuits), and purple for royalty! 

So, put on your Blue Suede Shoes, invite you favourite Hound Dog (don’t forget Nan!), and Shake, Rattle and Roll into your local Pinot & Picasso studio!

This icon is not only hitting the silver screen – he’s making a home in Bendigo at the Bendigo Art Gallery! 

The Elvis: Direct from Graceland exhibition has brought Elvis-mania to the entire town of Bendigo. From trams to cocktails, everyone can get a taste of the music icon, including at our Pinot & Picasso Bendigo studio! 

The blockbuster exhibition was even approved by Priscilla Presley. Her tick of approval has seen 300 pieces of his belongings (rhinestoned jumpsuits, a Harley Davidson, handwritten letters and sheet music) make a new home in Bendigo from Memphis. 

The Elvis: Direct from Graceland exhibition at the Bendigo Art Gallery is running until July 17. If you don’t make it to the exclusive collection, you can ease your Suspicious Minds and paint our Elvis: The King artwork at Pinot & Picasso Bendigo!

Why Pinot & Picasso is Perfect for All Types of Mums

Paint and Sip Experience for Mother's Day

Don’t know what to gift mum this Mother’s Day? We are here to help because Pinot & Picasso hold the key to the hearts of all mums. How, you ask? The thing about paint and sip is that it caters for all types of mothers, including yours! 

Here is why a paint and sip session is ideal for your mum this Mother’s Day!

For The Arts & Crafts Mum

Shock isn’t it! This Mother’s Day is the time to spend quality time together with a paintbrush in one hand and a wine glass in the other!

Our ‘Mumsterpiece’ and ‘Mumdala’ collaborative artworks are what you’re looking for! These two artworks are beautiful on their own, but when they come together, it feels whole, and you’ll never want them apart.

For The Green Thumb Mum

Does your mum love getting out in the sunshine and tending to her gardens? We’ve released a brand new concept that is right up her alley!

‘Love Grows: Paint your Pot’ allows mum to release her inner Picasso by creating her own pot design that can perfectly suit her interiors or garden at home! You can even buy her a plant to go in the pot for a two-in-one idea for you!

For The ‘It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere’ Mum

The beauty of a Pinot & Picasso session is that one half requires painting and the other sipping. 

With most of our studios being BYO, it gives your mum the luxury of bringing her favourite bevvy to our paint and sip classes. Whether she adores a rosé, a fine red, a crisp savvy b, or loves a beer, she can bring any desired drink with her!

For The Social Butterfly Mum

Ever wonder how mum keeps up with her social life better than you? No? Just us? Okay. 

A Pinot & Picasso gift card is the gift that keeps on giving! With prices varying from $40 to $240, you can spoil mum as much as you like and give her the option to take one of her many friends along with her – although you can still drop the hint that she should take you!

For The Family-Orientated Mum

It would be unlike mum to not want to spend Mother’s Day with her kids, right? We know mum will enjoy nothing more than spending quality time with her loved ones, so make it a colourful memory for all!

We love our paint and sip sessions because it caters to all abilities and every kind of person – we’re looking at your dad! Make it a family day or night out celebrating mum by attending a Pinot & Picasso class on the Mother’s Day weekend.

 

With Mother’s Day just under a month away, beat the last minute rush and organise your special day with mum now!

NEW: Mother’s Day Concepts

Pinot & Picasso Mother's Day

Pinot & Picasso and Mother's Day: our favourite duo!

This Mother’s Day release is so special to us, because we are creating an experience that will allow for families, mothers, daughters, and sons to spend quality time together creating a tangible piece of art that will hold special memories for years to come. Time is the most valuable present you could give anyone, and our mother’s day sessions give mothers across Australia three hours with their favourite people! 

See our NEW and exciting concepts for Mother’s Day below!

Love Grows: Paint your Pot

From little things, big things grow! Mothers are our gardeners; they spend their lives growing, caring, watering and loving their little seedlings, being there to support as they continue to grow.

This Mother’s Day, Pinot & Picasso has partnered with Australian Artist and Mother Prudence DeMarchi, to create a commissioned pot design. As you spend quality time with your Mum in our class, you’ll laugh, paint and sip your way through the three-hour session, taking home your very own pot with a unique design that will remind you of the special times you spent together.

Prue regularly spends quality time with her two children painting, finding that it is such a beautiful and therapeutic activity to enjoy together. She hopes you have just as much fun as she did creating these pots, at your class.

Mumsterpiece

You’re a special piece of the artwork, but together you’re a masterpiece. Join us this Mother’s Day for a collaborative artwork in that each canvas alone is beautiful, but together is whole. Sounds familiar, right?

Mum’s allow us to be whole, they hold your hand when you need it, answer the five calls a day to ask “should I get this for dinner?”, and they love you unconditionally. Show Mum, just how special she is to you this Mother’s Day with three hours of quality time, and an artwork to keep full of memories. 

Artwork created by Australian Artist, Melody Suranyi.

Mumdala

A Mandala starts at the core, and expands out to develop into something truly beautiful, much like our relationship with our mothers. 

What we love most about this artwork is how it is able to thrive beautifully on its own, but becomes an even greater, complex and beautiful artwork when combined. 

Our Mumdala artwork is back by popular demand in all studios this Mothers Day, with sessions running across Mothers Day weekend. As with all our artworks, we allow for creativity and design to run free. Participants can paint their backgrounds any colour, and the Mandala design is able to be tailored in any way you wish.

Time to be super organised (just like mum!) and prepare a creative day out at Pinot & Picasso!

What to Wear to a Paint and Sip Class

What to wear to a paint and sip class

We get it. It can be a tough decision to decide how you want to dress for your paint and sip session or private function. There are many factors to consider – what occasion you’re celebrating, your location, how formal or casual it is, what other people are wearing – it can be all too much! 

Here are some tips from our Pinot & Picasso hosts to help you dress to impress:

Comfort is key

Nothing worse than regretting wearing something that you just don’t feel comfy in. Don’t be afraid to keep it simple! Jeans and a nice top will always look on brand at the Pinot & Picasso studios. 

White is for the daring! 

While you might wear pink on Wednesdays, white is just not the colour when dealing with messy products like paint. We may dare you to wear white, but think carefully! If you’re planning to go out on the town after your paint and sip class, it might be best to choose a colour that could camouflage any paint spots!

Leave your designer clothes for the runway

No one wants to hear someone complaining about paint on their clothes, especially designer clothes. Those articles of clothing are not designed for art studios. Keep them paint-free by keeping them hung up in your wardrobe. You’ll thank us later!

This also goes for clothing of sentimental value. It’s easier to save it for another occasion!

Swap high heels for low riders

We recommend wearing enclosed shoes but it isn’t a necessity. You may come to a public session that is more of a casual vibe or P&P could be a stop for a Hens activity – whatever the occasion may be, think about which shoes you’d be happy to wear.

We welcome all footwear (please don’t come in bare feet!) to our sessions. The choice is really yours for your sip and paint class. 

Be prepared for spillages! 

As mentioned above, sometimes paint just somehow lands on your clothes, in your hair, or on your skin. You’ll question how it got there but nevertheless, it’s there. Being stylish can come at a cost but do be prepared for the worst case scenario – don’t worry, no Carrie moments have happened in our studios!

While you will be wearing a P&P apron, we can’t guarantee that you might get a splash of paint on yourself – it’s all part of the fun. 

Do it for the ‘Gram

You can ignore all our suggestions – we may do that too! We always encourage posting to Instagram when you’re at our sessions. Stories or posts, we love to see you having the most fun at our studios! 

If this plays a part in what you wear, c’est la vie. We just sounded like Emily in Paris! 

All in all, just be you! You never go out of style, as good ol’ Taylor Swift once sang! Book your next Pinot & Picasso session today!

NEW: 6 Artworks have Landed!

Pinot & Picasso New Artworks

It’s time to pack your suitcases and get ready to paint your way around the world! We’ve got SIX destinations for you to explore at Pinot & Picasso! Yep – that means SIX new artworks to add to your bucket list!

Boarding is now open! Take your assigned seat and check out our brand new artworks below!

CHERRY BLOSSOM SEASON

Looks familiar, doesn’t it? The highest mountain in Japan deserves the highest level of detail from us! In this painting, we take a day trip to Mt Fuji, stop off at Pagoda and swoon over the beautiful cherry blossoms falling like snow. This painting is for those who enjoy painting in detail.

COLOSSEUM

Gladiators! Swap your swords for paintbrushes as we visit the largest ancient amphitheatre ever built. As we sit, sing and sip, our artist will guide you through each step, and you’ll be left wondering… how on earth did they build this in mediaeval times? Turn this visit to Italy  into ‘Eataly’, and purchase a grazing box ready for you on arrival!

EVIL EYE

As a Greek tradition, it is said that the Evil Eye will protect those in its company from bad spirits (wish I knew that before meeting my ex!). As we paint this iconic symbol, we ask you to manifest the bad spirits you don’t want following you around, and display this proudly in your home to keep them away.

LANTERN FESTIVAL

The Lantern Festival in many cultures celebrates romance, community, freedom and reunions. This artwork is perfect for reconnecting with friends and family! Join us to light up the night sky, as we paint this lovely lunar scene.

LEMONCELLO

When life gives you lemons, display them beautifully on your table for that little pop of aesthetic colour, or make a gin & tonic! Our Lemoncello artwork is bringing you Amalfi Coast vibes! This stunning artwork will be a zesty addition to your home and all interiors!

TI AMO TUSCANY

Sticking with Italy, because why not?! Escape to the vineyards of Tuscany in this three-hour session. As you sip back and relax, bring your own finest drop as you paint your very own outlook of the Tuscan wine country. This painting is best displayed in your office or your home to gaze at daily from where you’d rather be.

Now that you’ve seen all the destinations, it’s time to organise your next trip to Pinot & Picasso!
