Unleash your creativity at Arteastiq
Whether you’re an art novice or planning to be the next Picasso, painting just got even more fun with art jamming.
theAsianparent writer, Dinah explores her inner Picasso at Arteastiq. Read on to find out more on her first art jamming experience.
Drawing, painting, sketching, and illustrating are talents I always wished I had. So when I found out that the next company outing was an art jammingat Arteastiq, I was thrilled! Not only do I get to paint, but it’s also going to be a fun way to bond with my colleagues.
Art jamming: paint as you socialise
Arteastiq is half café, half painting space. You can sip your tea or cuppa as you create your very own masterpiece. You’re given the liberty to explore your creative side and paint as you please.
For those of you who have not been to Arteastiq, this art studio-cum-café is nestled in the corner of Mandarin Gallery. The art studio easily gets noticed by passersby because of its full glass bay windows that give a glimpse of the budding artists painting away inside.
There are two areas at Arteastiq at opposite ends of each other: the art studio and the café. The atmosphere is filled with the smell of food and the chatter of fellow café patrons. Despite that, it’s not all that distracting for those who are busy in the art jammingstudio.
Be it for team bondings, events, or even date nights, the studio allows up to a total of 30 people.

Before we started painting away, we were given a 50×50 cm canvas, unlimited acrylic paint, sponges, brushes, paint palette, and an apron. We could also order one complimentary beverage from Arteastiq to complement our painting experience. Alcoholic beverages are also available for those who need a little boost to get their creative juices going.
It was a freestyle session so we could paint whatever we wanted. For some of my colleagues who needed a little inspiration, Arteastiq provided some visual samples to browse through, from which we could select our desired images to be printed out on paper as reference when we painted.
When we were all settled with our aprons on, we started to paint away. The acrylic paints were placed below the canvas stand, so it was convenient for us to grab some as we painted.
I never knew some of my colleagues had such artistic talents in them! My favourite part of the activity was how everyone was so engrossed in their painting, it was fascinating to watch.
Especially when working in the hustle and bustle of the Central Business District in Singapore, unwinding on a Friday evening with good company and a fun, creative outlet like painting almost feels therapeutic. Even the tentative ones among us ended up enjoying themselves. Some who finished their masterpieces early even offered to help others (you only get to play Van Gogh for 3 hours).
