Champainting has been providing fun and unique painting experiences ever since it was first launched in 2012. Since then, its popularity has helped fuel significant growth — to the point where we now own and operate four studios across Melbourne and Sydney, including our South Melbourne studios on Clarendon Street.
What to expect from Champainting in South Melbourne
Champainting isn’t about becoming the next Da Vinci or Van Gogh — though if that’s your goal, the guidance you’ll receive from our professional artists will certainly help. More important to us is that you’re able to tap into that creative state of mind and have fun while doing it — something that is made a lot easier with a glass of wine or two by your side!
Our South Melbourne studio, conveniently located on Clarendon Street, is home to a wide range of different sessions, each of which focuses on producing a different work of art. We also offer VIP classes, a luxury paint and sip experience which launched in Sydney before making the leap across the border and is now available with our South Melbourne painting venues. Taking place in immersive locations where you could be surrounded by inspiration and wildlife, this indulgent package takes your paint and sip experience to the next level. Our VIP Melbournians, for example, have had the chance to enjoy their classes at SEA LIFE Melbourne — giving them a chance to tick painting in front of a grey nurse shark off their bucket list!

Do I need any experience to do a paint and sip class?
Not at all! Our paint and sip South Melbourne classes aren’t about competition or creating a world-class piece of artwork. They’re about trying something new, having fun and learning a little bit about painting along the way. With some professional guidance and a little bit of wine, we can help you to do just that.
How do I get to your South Melbourne studio?
Our South Melbourne studio is easily accessible — located just south of the Yarra on the bustling Clarendon Street. Perhaps the simplest way to get there is via Melbourne’s extensive tram network, with our studio just a one-minute walk from the stop at the corner of York and Clarendon Street.

In short – fun! Our paint and sip sessions take place in an easy-going environment, making it the ideal place to enjoy yourself regardless of your painting ability. We focus on providing useful painting tips in a relaxed setting, while our luxury VIP classes offer yet another layer of enjoyment — courtesy of the unique locations in which they take place.
