Be a painter for a day

Would you like to paint Klimt’s Kiss? I’m sure you are answering in your head with something like ‘No, I would never be able to do that!’. Well I’m here to tell you that yes, you can. With help of a professional of course, but it would be a unique replica that is all you.

Here is what happened to me. One of my best friends went to a painting event in Budapest and came home with a very nice artwork that she is very proud of. I obviously wanted to get some of that! So I started to look for similar opportunities in Szeged and found a painting I liked at a company called Kreatív Kávé (Creative Coffee). During the event I painted on canvas using acrylic dye. It was very well organised, the lead artist was always telling us what to paint next. It’s crucial to have a pro because civilians doesn’t know how long it takes for the dye to dry for example. She never corrected anything on my painting, just gave my tips during the process and 4 hours later it turned out like this:

I really enjoyed this relaxing Saturday and I’m thinking about going again sometimes. The costs of the event was 8000 HUF, but it depends on the material you need to make your artwork, so it can be higher up to 13 000 HUF.

If you are in Hungary and interested in such an event, here are the places you can let go of your inner artist:

Kreatív Kávé: Budapest, Üröm, Szeged, Subotica
