"Wonderful experience! Perfect ambience and super friendly staff and artists teaching from scratch."- Gunjan Dixit
Paint Pinot’s evolution
It’s funny how life works. One minute you’re juggling exhibiting art and casual teaching and can’t seem to make ends meet. Next, you’re travelling around NSW running small paint and sip events in Canberra and regional NSW, at a variety of venues.
That’s precisely what happened to Tina Hansen.
She found herself in exactly the right place, at the right time to take advantage of a golden opportunity matched with her skill set.
It was an opportunity brought to Tina’s attention by her son, Christopher, who lives in Calgary in Canada. Christopher attended a paint and sip event. He had an incredible time and raved about it to his artistic mum back in Australia.
Here was the light bulb moment!
There was almost nothing like it in Australia.
It was a largely untapped market.
Tina knew it was a chance that she couldn’t afford to miss. She thought that maybe she could make a living doing what she loved. And the best part was, she could bring happiness and a love of art to so many people. People who had a misguided belief that they weren’t artistic, that they weren’t creative and that there was a wrong and a right way to make art.
Tina has always believed, “There’s a painting in every person.”
And she wanted to prove it.
The Paint Pinot concept was born.
Paint Pinot puts down roots
After two years of travelling NSW, Tina, believed that there was a better way and together with her partner George, realised her dream of finding a studio in Braddon to run all her sessions from. That venue is now a fully functional Art Café, a one-stop-shop for art, entertainment, delicious food, and drinks.
Paint Pinot grows
Today Paint Pinot is running in multiple locations, to bring joy and colour into the lives of as many people as possible.
Each venue is staffed by highly capable and friendly personnel who are creative, fun, and excellent at teaching people to paint and drawing out their artistic abilities.
