Wine and art lovers rejoice! Moseley Square at Glenelg is set to become the new home of Pinot & Picasso, a ‘paint and sip’ studio that teaches participants to paint – with their favourite drink in hand.

From Saturday, visitors can visit the studio’s central beachside location for a three-hour session of drinking wine, laughing with friends and painting under the guidance of an instructor.

Glenelg will be the third studio opened by NSW business operators Dan Pedano and Clint Carver.

Mr Pedano said Australians enthusiastically supported the idea as a great experience to have with friends or family.

“It started in Sydney with one store and now there’s 52 across Australia within three years,” Mr Pedano said.

“It’s taken off because it’s a mixture of going out with your mates and adding a bit of creativity to it.

“We love seeing people come in who aren’t necessarily experienced in art, but walk out with a big smile on their face after having had a great time – with something to show for it.

“To have the studio right here on the beach is amazing.

“We’re hoping people will be able to walk past and see the vibe.”

While Covid-19 restrictions have hampered hospitality businesses across the country, Mr Pedano attributed some of Pinot & Picasso’s success during the pandemic to the ease of abiding by those restrictions.

“It’s definitely a big plus that once we sit down, we can drink and take our masks off – we can do the right thing, but still socialise and have a good time,” he said.

Adelaide local and manager of the new BYO studio, Stephanie Daughtry, has assembled a team of creatives who will encourage guests to explore their artistic side.

“The people I’ve chosen have really diverse backgrounds from performing artists to hospitality workers and art therapists,” Ms Daughtry said.

“The whole idea is that everyone who comes in has a really fun time.”

Ms Daughtry said every session was different and even included painting your partner for Valentine’s Day.

“There’s lots of paintings people can choose to do from our website,” she said.

The Glenlg Pinot & Picasso joins two other locations in Adelaide at Henley Beach and Norwood, with Saturday’s inaugural sessions already booked out.
