Paint Pop Art at Common with PopUp Painting at Seven Bro7hers Beerhouse, Manchester 29 May 2022 Tickets from £32.99 — Book now

Keen artist or just looking for a fun night out with a bit of a twist? PopUp painting welcomes all.

Their booze friendly approach to creativity sees bars around Manchester and Salford being taken over with arts materials, and in this featured event at Seven Bro7hers, you will get to grips with the striking colours, political messages and vibrant aesthetic of Banksy inspired street art.

This month, you can create your own homage to Banksy’s Balloon Girl, in the cosy and delicious setting of Seven Bro7hers Beerhouse. Banksy’s original canvas of this work is perhaps most famous for being part of a scandal in which the painting was half shredded just as it was auctioned for an outrageous amount of money at Sotheby’s.

You will be creating a stencil free version of the work, using different painting techniques and a vibrant colour palette. All the materials are provided and you’ll be walked through the process step by step with expert artists on hand to help out if you get stuck.

Pop-Up Painting was started as a reaction to the American trend of Sip N’ Paint, originating in London. They’ve since been helping people unleash their creativity with a paintbrush in one hand and a wine glass in the other all over the country. In PopUp events, local artists help people master basic painting skills, with easy to use acrylic paint. Each event is centred around an artist or particular style of painting so you can expect to learn something while enjoying the relaxed atmosphere.

PopUp holds events several times a month across other great drinking spots in Manchester and Salford. Each event is hands-on and immersive with tailored playlists chosen to match the kind of energy required in the painting process, as well as relating to the relevant era or the tastes of the artist in focus.

If you have always wanted to have a go at painting but never had an outlet for your artistic inclinations, or if you just want to add a more cultural twist to time spent drinking with friends, PopUp painting is the one. Check the website for more details of future events.
