Are your classes suitable for children?
Yes, if they have adult supervision. If having a grown-up present is not possible, we also run Mini MasterPeace classes for those younger budding artists.
Are your classes Covid Secure?
Yes. All our classes are backed by our Covid-Secure Guarantee, meaning you can cancel or reschedule no quibbles due to a government lockdown or sickness. Our classes are fully socially distanced, see our 'Covid Update' blog post in the footer of our website for up to date info on all things Covid, and our extensive measures to keep you safe whilst at the studio.
What's included?

What is the structure of the class?
Each class will begin with pencil and paper based warm up exercises to help you find your creative flow before moving onto your paintings. You'll then be guided by the professional artist instructor to create an impressive painting that is personal to you.
How have you adapted your classes for COVID-19?
For a full breakdown of all the extensive measures we've implemented to stay Covid Secure, head to our latest blog post - found in the footer of our main website. A few minor points to mention for our regular guests who perhaps visited us pre-covid and are wondering what's changed: - Our usual shareable bottles of Prosecco have been swapped for individual cans of red and white wine - this is to limit hand-to-hand (and bottle-to-glass) contact for now. Biodegradable cups are available. The wine selection is delicious, but we'll get back to bubbles as soon as we can! -Our gorgeous cotton artist's kimonos have been temporarily swapped to biodegradable gowns. They're not quite as pretty but they get the job done, and they're kind to the planet too.
Will I finish my painting?
Lots of our guests finish their paintings in the first sitting with us, have them framed on site, and hang them up as soon as they get home. But... it really comes down to: - How complex your chosen image is - Any extra finesse you'd like to add, say, if it's intended as a gift for someone - How speedy you are! At MasterPeace we practice mindful painting, so we really don't want you to rush, let it take the time it wants to take. And to enable you to relax: we send you home with all the paints & brushes you use in your class to keep, so that you can add any final touches from home, free of charge, should you need. If you'd rather come back to us: you can return for another class, or sign up for a Freestyle session, that's 90 minutes of independent painting for just £10.
Can I leave my painting at MasterPeace?
Some guests choose to leave their paintings with us in between visits, which is our pleasure. We do advise to do so at your own risk... it is an operational art school and paint explosions are definitely a thing! We will keep your piece for a maximum of two weeks unless you get in touch with us. We wouldn't recommend this option if you're very attached to your creation... instead, we'd help you blow-dry your painting so you can take it home with you on the same day.

Meg Stewart - August 6th
Absolutely loved this class and would definitely recommend. I was initially a bit nervous due to my lack of experience/talent with painting, however Romy was a fabulous and encouraging teacher who was there to answer any questions and offer advice. We started the class with a few quick mindfulness activities to get us relaxed and before I knew it I was so absorbed in the painting process. All of the thoughts and worries that were swirling through my mind prior to the class had vanished. I only wish the class went for longer - time flew by! What a great experience in a very welcoming and peaceful environment :)
