We are a small business that was born in 2017. At first it was only four of us. Today, the team is made up by ten hard working members. We are a multidisciplinary team joined by the common task of taking people closer to the art world.
We share the idea that painting does not have to be something cold, distant and pretentious, but a natural and happy part of everyone’s life.

Our DRINK AND PAINT sessions consist on a two hour (aprox.) class in which every participant gets to paint a whole canvas with the guide of a teacher while he or she enjoys a glass of wine or beer.
No previous experience in art or painting is needed. Our teachers will guide you step by step so that at the end of the session you can take a signed and finished art piece home just like a real artist would do.
We have two main goals. First we want to show up as a fun and different alternative compared with traditional team-building activities. Second, we seek to turn people into art lovers. Our goal is to teach people about the enormous effort that exists behind every artistic production.
Our story is simple and personal.
DRINKANDPAINT.MX started as one of the weekend activities that the Centro Cultural Escondido offered to all those who wanted to practice an artistic activity but who did not have the time to do it.
Just like it, DRINKANDPAINT.MX was born with the intention to take artistic and recreational activities to some the zones of Mexico City which have a small cultural offer. Always with the idea that anyone can practice a manual or artistic activity no matter the professional education they’ve had or the life path they’ve chosen.
