If you've always enjoyed channelling a bit of Bob Ross energy or suspected you have an inner Picasso - you're going to want to get yourself along to the Beats 'N Brushes events in Tamaki Makarau this month.
As part of Elemental Festival, a series of paint parties are being held across July, where music lovers are treated to themed beats by local DJs while they paint up a storm and chow down on some delicious kai. Plus, you can BYO drinks!
Last week they kicked things off with 'A Night in the '09' featuring tunes from Lucky Lance and Manuel Bundy at the Royal NZ Yacht Squadron. What a vibe.
This week, Beats 'N' Brushes presents Poly-Saturated, inspired by the diverse cultures of the Pacific with art influenced by the dusky maidens of Polynesia and the retro kitsch art period.
Tapping into the melting pot of tunes from Pacific artists to get those creative juices flowing will be SWIDT's main DJ and Executive Producer JAMAL and resident DJ Yannika.
Maori-owned local foodies Pizza Presto will be bringing culture to your taste buds with their famous Pisupo Pizza! An evening saturated in the cultures of Polynesia.
Next week's disco-themed 'Earth Wind and Fire' event is already sold out, so you're not gonna want to miss this one.
Tickets range between $75 - $120 depending on the event and cover food, live DJs and art supplies, plus there's an onsite artist assisting throughout the evening.
