We go where you want to paint and party!

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  Second class tonight with Makara and her hubby!! Such a great time with friends and byob. Both of my girlfriends were afraid they wouldn't be able to paint a thing and they proved themselves wrong through your guidance. You will truly be missed in the community but best of luck on your next duty station!!! I'm going to try my hardest to get in one more class before you leave

    5 star review  I had a blast last night at my Play with Pigments party and I love how well my painting turned out! I took art for three years in high school and never enjoyed the instruction as much as I did with Makara. In one evening, I made a painting that I like so much more than the ones I made in school and actually will be proud to hang this on my wall. The atmosphere was light and fun too, which added to the overall enjoyment. I definitely recommend her parties!
