Ep.33: Bring the joy of art to a wider audience with Song & Annette from Paint Events Zurich

Paint Events are social get-togethers for anyone,  where no prior painting experience is required! Song and Nette started this creative get together after they discovered mutual passion in Acrylic painting. Paint event emphasis is on creating a fun and stress-free environment for you to slow down and let your creativity flow. I met Song and Nette on one of their relaxing events and I thought their story needs be shared with the world.

How did it actually start? As Song says: “In early 2016, my yoga teacher training led me to Montréal. Searching online for things to do, I came across painting activities taking place in bars and restaurants. „Wow…“ I thought. Even though I have always loved drawing and painting, I had seriously neglected this hobby during my years at university. So I got myself a ticket, went to the paint venue and made my first brush strokes in years. Back then I had no idea that half a year later, I would be organizing similar events back home. In Zurich, I organized small paint get together with friends, including Nette. Realizing that this concept of “just for fun” paint events didn’t really exist here, the idea of PaintEvents.ch was born”
