Welcome!

What is Play with Pigments?

We are a traveling and pop-up paint party studio. We provide the art supplies and instruction for you to explore your creativity in a fun and relaxing environment. Bring a friend and follow along as Makara walks you, step-by-step, through replicating that day’s featured painting. No experience necessary!

How long are classes?

Classes run for approximately 2-3 hours with breaks sprinkled in. Sometimes we have so much fun that we go a bit past our scheduled time, so please allow for some flexibility. You will leave with a painting that is uniquely yours, and we guarantee you will be amazed at the artwork you will have created.

What do I need to bring?

We provide all the painting materials, just come ready to have fun! Depending on the location, you can even bring your favorite beverages and snacks! Please refer to the event details regarding food and beverage circumstances.

    5 star review  Makara is really wonderful. We had them over to host a date night and she was so clear on instructions. She also handled the two toddlers running around with such kindness and patience! I would definitely recommend having them host your paint parties, based solely on their personalities and teaching skills.

    5 star review  This was my first time painting and my fiancé and I had an amazing time. Makara and Patrick make a great team and provide a friendly, fun atmosphere in which to paint your masterpiece. If you have the chance to attend a class than I could not recommend it more. Thank you so much!

    5 star review  I had a really great time painting. Makara is a great teacher. If you have not painted before she helps you understand the basics. I felt comfortable painting in her class and had an amazing time.
