Artyparty has partnered with The Third Eye - Tuatara Temple of Taste to bring you regular, fun Thursday nights out, and The Speights Ale House, Petone for Sunday afternoon art sessions.

Artyparty is a fun, 3 hour event for anyone who wants to give art a go. Two local Wellington artists step you through how to create your very own masterpiece while you enjoy a drink on us! No experience necessary - We welcome all ages and talents.

We're all about creating a fun, safe, creative atmosphere with music, all equipment and set up all sorted! And we guarantee people go home with a smile of their face and their own masterpiece in hand.

Each week we paint a new topic - an original painting of ours, or an interpretation of a famous artist. Follow our event page for more info, ticketing and to stay in the loop about what we are painting on upcoming nights if you can't make it this time around!
