1. What Is Virtual Paint and Sip?

A virtual paint and sip party or class is an informal art class where participants are guided step-by-step by experts on a virtual conferencing platform, to create their very own masterpiece. To make the experience more casual and relaxed, the guests can have a drink from their choice of alcoholic, or non-alcoholic beverages.

Also known as wine and paint parties, it first began in America in 2007 and grew rapidly. The activity allows participants to have no pressure or worry about being artistic, as it is all about learning, creating, engaging in casual conversations, and having a good time. Mixing colours, watching your brush move, and a sip of your wine - there’s a good therapeutic activity.

Virtual paint and sip team building is an innovative way for remote teams to connect, allowing participants to unleash their creativity through painting while engaging in casual conversation over their favorite drinks.
