Frequently Asked Questions
How can I paint a picture if I can’t paint at all? Can I come without experience, should I try it at all?
Definitely yes, try it! Anyone and everyone can come, even the least experienced painter 🙂 First of all, it´s all about fun and relaxation, and secondly, If you think you cannot paint then that’s every reason to paint!
The Creative-U format is structured so your creativity is flowing from the first few brush strokes with guidance from our Creative-U pro painter, and we know you’ll be inspired and surprised at your hidden talents.
You will paint according to a template and the themes are chosen so even beginners can create magic with a brushstroke. Our Creative-U pro-painters will advise and help you through the artistic journey. The pro-painter will stand in front of you and the group and paint on a larger canvas so everyone can see and follow. You will paint and sip your wine (or soft drink, it´s up to you) and enjoy the atmosphere and experience. At the end of your session you will take your personal masterpiece home along with finding out something positive and new about yourself.
How does the painting process work? What should I expect?
First of all, our lessons can be held in either Czech or English languages. You will come to the agreed venue; you don’t have to take anything with you. Disposable aprons will be prepared for you as well as easels and all painting equipment.
We recommend wearing clothes where you don´t mind the odd drop of paint, just in case 🙂 you will take your drink, settle down and we can start. Everyone paints his or her own picture. Our pro-painter will explain the initial procedure, like the mixing colors etc. The “paint to canvas” process starts with sketching the outline of the overall picture with a pencil, then our pro-painter will explain and guide what colors will be used in all places of the painting. After that, we can begin. The Creative–U pro-painter stands in front of you and paints on a larger canvas so that everyone can see and follow. After about an hour of painting, there will be a break of about 20 minutes and then we continue for another hour.
In the end, we will all take a group picture (with your permission of course) of all our artwork 🙂
What types of paints are used for painting?
We use acrylic paints because they dry faster and can be worked with more easily. Also acrylic paints are soluble with water so hands and odd spills can be washed out.
Is it possible to change the image of the picture a bit?
Everyone will paint the same picture they applied for. If you want to add a special touch or re-paint something, or remove or choose another background variant, of course, it is possible within reason. Our pro-painters will be happy to advise you on how to do it.
What is included in the price?
The price includes all painting supplies, including easels, canvases, brushes, paints, pencils, disposable aprons, one drink (wine, soft drink, beer), small snacks, and, of course, the painting that you take away.
Can I take the children with me?
Children are of course welcome; they can paint with the group from the age of 7. In the case of younger children that you want to take with you, you can do so, if you look after them :-). We also organize painting exclusively for children, where younger age categories are catered for.
How can I apply for the painting event?

What shall I do if I have purchased a ticket and cannot attend the event?
