  • What is a Paint & Sip?
    Paint & Sip combines the fun, laughter and relaxation of a party with a group painting experience. You'll be guided through the creative process, step by step. During the event, you and your group will work at individual easels to create your own masterpiece! At the end of each event you will have your very own painting to take home and all the memories and laughs that it took to create. Our Paint & Sip experience is often enjoyed with BYO beverages of your choice, for example, coffee, wine, beer (or water, if you prefer) and yummy nibblies! The emphasis of Artist Jessica Butler Paint & Sip experience is to have fun with art and enjoy some YOU time! So come along and Learn. Create. Laugh.

  • Are events Covid-19 safe?
    The health and safety of everyone at Artist Jessica Butler events is my top priority. In line with the QLD Public Health Order, a number of COVID safe measures are in place for the safety and wellbeing of everyone at the event; including the Tripple S (santize, stay seated, sign in) and vaccination. I personally respect the choice to not vaccinate, however, Artist Jessica Butler does comply with all Australian state government requirements (and requirements set out in the room hire). To safely continue to operate my business and for the safety of my customers, I request proof of vaccination as a means of entry to a public or private session. From the 2nd January 2022 masks must be worn indoors everywhere in Queensland until further notice by the Qld Government. If Paint & Sip isn't for you, I have recently launched Paint From Home events as a lovely way to join in the fun from the comfort of your home. Thanks for your understanding.
