Best art jamming studios in Singapore
Paintblush claims to be the most affordable art jamming studio in Singapore – we’re talking just $18 for two hours of fun. Want to take things up a notch? Book its three-hour Sip ‘n’ Paint session (where you can bring your own booze and bites) to enjoy a guided art session with friends. We tried it out and learnt how to paint life-like lemons on beautiful pastel purple backgrounds, thanks to the patient art instructor. Bob Ross would be proud. For a cheekier experience, we recommend signing up for the special ‘magic man’ event, where a live male model pours you glasses of wine as you paint an image of his body. Keep your hands on those paintbrushes only!
