What is Paintvine?

It’s a fun social painting class where our artists will run you through step-by-step instructions on how to create your very own masterpiece in a fun and relaxed bar in Mount Maunganui. Perfect for dates, catching up with mates or for meeting new friends.

We provide all the materials you need (high-quality canvas, acrylic paint, brushes). All you need to bring is your creative spirit (or find some at the bottom of a glass). At the end of the night you will leave with your own painting ready to hang up on your wall.

So what are you going to be painting?

Tui are endemic to New Zealand (found nowhere else in the world). The green, blue, and black of the tui make a striking contrast to the bright golden yellow of the Kowhai flowers. Tui have complex variety of songs and calls, much like parrots. They also resemble parrots in their ability to clearly imitate human speech,and were trained by Maori to replicate complex speech. Tui will also sing at night, especially around the full moon period.
