After a lot of planning and preparation, Easely Does It launched at the beginning of 2020. The idea was to make art fun! Like anything, art can be made easy with a bit of direction. We wanted to show people that anyone can paint and that everyone is an artist. Little did we know 3 months in we’d have to totally change our plan and take things online. What we really didn’t expect was that a year later we’d still be 5 online sessions a week, painting with people from as far away as California, Malta, Germany and Singapore.
We always include a bit of technical knowledge! To help improve your painting skills. We use a variety of technics to get the finish result, hopefully something everyone will want to hang on their wall. That is why we always try to offer variations around a central theme so every painting is more personal. Not only do we want to introduce new people to the joys of art, but if we can help people who already dabble, then that’s great, right?

I was gifted a “Painting And Prosecco Evening” for my birthday. Even though I didn’t know anyone there, it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening!
I rediscovered the joy of painting whilst sipping at a glass of prosecco and I was thrilled to bring my piece of art home! Thank you to Toni and her team for a brilliant evening!– Myriam
A brilliant concept, you don’t even need to be able to paint as Toni guides you through everything. A fun, relaxed evening, highly recommended.
Looking forward to the next one already– Sue
