As we while away the time at home under physical distancing rules, unleashing on a creative project or pouring a glass of pino are vices many of us are turning to for passing the time. But, especially if you haven’t picked up a paint brush since a high school art class, a blank canvas sitting before you can be a bit of an overwhelming prospect.

Thankfully, local ‘sip and paint’ studios are now offering at-home options so you can have an instructor on hand to guide your creative spark (it’s just up to you to keep your wine glass topped up). 

Cork & Canvas is offering budding artists on-demand or livestreamed painting classes on Zoom for $30 that will guide you through the creation of your own work of art, from idyllic landscapes to kids classes. You have the option to provide your own materials or you can order your own Creativity Kit ($80 with enough materials for one person, $130 for two, $230 for a family) including access to a virtual painting class with free shipping Australia wide.

Cork & Chroma is offering their own online sessions via Zoom that will guide you through mindful painting exercises, whether you’re looking to paint up your own take on a starry night, mandalas, water lillies or assorted pretty nature-y scene for $20 a session. You have the option to provide your own materials or you can order your own At Home Studio Kit ($60 for one, $100 for two, $160 for a family) to pick up from their Melbourne studio. Cork & Chroma’s online sessions generally run on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings as well as Sunday afternoons.
