More Information About Open Painting Sessions

Opening hours for freestyle Painting:

Mon/Wed/Fri: 2:00 – 6:00 PM

Last start for painting: 4:45 PM

Our open painting sessions are designed for slightly more independent painters. If you are a complete beginner we recommend you first try out one of our guided painting events. Nevertheless, even at our open painting sessions you are not on your own: one of our experienced painting hosts is always present for support and inspiration.

For open painting sessions there is no need to buy a ticket in advance but we encourage registrations via email ( as they can help us plan. Especially if you are looking for a particular canvas size please check with us whether we have it in stock. We have space for about 14 painters and it’s first come – first serve.

Costs: The price is per item. Once you purchased an item (e.g. 30x40cm canvas with paint for 28CHF) you can stay until we close. Please find the menu with all prices here.

Although we are not exactly a retail store, we do sell small things like canvases, watercolour sets, old paintings etc. Please find some goods here: Material Price List PaintEvents (Shop)

Prices for Materials and Open Painting

Canvases can be purchased directly at the studio and include the use of paint and brushes for one whole open painting session (up to 5 hours). Lower prices are available if you have your own paint or want to purchase a canvas to take home. We also don’t mind if you bring some or even all of your materials – in that case we simply charge a small fee for the use of our studio (incl. tea & coffe).

All our prices can be found here.
