  • What does it take to become an artist? To many, art can only be fully understood and appreciated by those who live and breathe it; by those who have studied its history, many forms and techniques, along with those who have a thorough knowledge of its greatest icons.

    These days, though, anyone can celebrate art — and take a dab at it too! Our latest haunt transforms art into something that’s not just meant for art critics and enthusiasts, but also as a creative recreational activity for the whole family.

    Located at Capitol Hills, a residential neighborhood in Old Balara, Quezon City, is Sip & Gogh — a cleverly concocted name for the very first paint and sip studio in the country. Having experienced the novel concept in the U.S., one of the partners of Sip & Gogh brought the idea to Manila.

    “We named it after Van Gogh because he’s one of the greatest painters of all time,” says Grace Santos, one of the owners. As to why they brought the concept to the Philippines, Grace says, “Filipinos are looking for other venues to have fun. When you say art, it seems so formal. But we want to convey the message that art can be for everyone. Anyone can do art.”
