With a paintbrush in one hand and a glass of wine in the other, Albany artists are leading workshops exploring the eras of art. 

The Painters Palate is a series of art workshops organised by Bella Sivyer, where each class focuses on a different artist and time period.

Participants are provided with wine and food, alongside era-specific music to create a sensory and social environment.

Well-known Albany artists Sivyer and Jacqui Gale lead the workshops and guide people through the three-hour painting process.

The first class kicked off earlier this month with participants painting a self-portrait in a Cubism style, influenced by Pablo Picasso.

Ms Sivyer praised the artists, saying the finished results were very impressive.

“They all went amazingly well, I’ve got really good teachers which really helps and lots of resources and images that they are able to refer to,” she said.

“They just get immersed in the painting process and in three hours they produce something that is really good.

“It’s fabulous that people are able to tap into their creative side with no prior experience or knowledge and just have fun.”

The Painters Palate have run two classes so far, the first focussing on Picasso, the second on Monet and the next on Frida Kahlo, which has already been booked out.

There are three upcoming classes over May and June. One explores the mesmerising style of Salavdor Dali, another involves painting a sunset in the style of William Turner and the last explores the sensual style of Gustav Klimt.

The workshops are 18+ and are open to people of all skill levels who are interested in creating art in a light-hearted and social environment.
