MasterPeace is a unique art experience for adults in London who want to learn to paint mindfully and express themselves creatively

by Zena El Farra in London, England, United Kingdom

New stretch target

We are totally overwhelmed with gratitude that you enabled us to reach our initial target. We don't want to stop there, we have massive ambitions for the impact we can have through this creative movement. 

Your extra help will really enable us to launch MasterPeace with impact come September. We want to offer our guests the best possible experience, offering them the best equipment and facilities to remove all barriers to helping them find their creative flow.

Plus, with your extra support we can:

1. Run more Karma Classes. These are donation-only classes which mean that MasterPeace can be accessible to all in our local community2. Increase our sponsorship of the creative arts in local schools, facing cutbacks, so important in a world where our children now more than ever need a creative education to solve the world's un-automateable challenges! 3. Run more Workplace Team events on the importance of mindfulness & creativity for wellbeing, beating burn-out (and breaking the stigma)

Help us launch MasterPeace in September 2019!

-------------------------------------------

What is MasterPeace?

  • MasterPeace is about helping people tap into the mindful benefits of the painting process. 
  • We enable guests to turn a photo of their choice into a beautiful, personalised work of art within just 90 minutes.
  • Using our unique techy hacks, even total beginners can find their flow with us.
  • We aim to open the doors to our inclusive, fun and stunning studio, located in the lovely Eccleston Yards, London, this September!

-------------------------------------------


Why Mindful Painting?

  • At MasterPeace, the focus is in on the mindful benefits of the paintwork process, with research showing painting and creativity is proven to help boost wellbeing and improve mental health. MasterPeace is the first mindful painting experience in London of its kind, making it possible for guests to drop-in at a time that suits them, ensuring it's that much easier for guests to get started and find their creative flow.

-------------------------------------------

"I’m no artist, I’ve had the classic city job. Painting for me is like yoga or meditation. It gets me out of my busy head for a minute and helps me focus on the beauty that’s around me. I wanted to share that feeling of flow with all our guests, which is why we created MasterPeace"

- Zena El Farra, MasterPeace Founder

-------------------------------------------


-------------------------------------------


How does it work?

  • We’ve developed a new way to start drawing and painting effortlessly, using light as a guide to turn your favourite photos into a painting, even as a total beginner, in just 90 minutes.
  • With nearly 200 unique sessions offered every month, simply book online at a time that suits you, and we’ll help you find your flow, through our unique blend of creative meditation. 
  • All materials are provided, and there's no washing up. Simply come with a photo you love on your smartphone, and we'll take it from there. 

-------------------------------------------

"I hadn't picked up a pencil in years, but even I could do it, it really couldn't be easier. I'd forgotten what it felt like to paint, you lose track of time and you are truly present with no distractions. My finished painting fills me with pride now, and reminds me to take a bit of time for me!"

-MasterPeace Guest, Pilot Event, London

-------------------------------------------

Who is MasterPeace for?

  • MasterPeace is for everyone, from total beginners through to the more advanced. MasterPeace welcomes individuals, friendship groups, couples, all the way through to teams and corporates. 
  • All our guests are taught by professional, vibrant, up and coming local artists living in London, for whom mindfulness is an important part of their practise and their lives, and whose private collections are exhibited in our curated art gallery. 


-------------------------------------------

What is MasterPeace's Social Mission?

  • At MasterPeace, we are passionate about creating a new conversation about mental health & wellbeing. We believe everyone's wellness is unique to them. Providing new and varied ways to tap into our personal revitalisation is essential. Our mental wellness offering centres on the transformative impact of creative meditation, whilst belonging to a new community of like-minded, local people.
  • At MasterPeace we invest in our local community. For every adult class we teach, our goal is to help fund a creative arts class in our local schools, where we’ve seen investment falling in all arts departments. 
  • We’re breathing fresh life into the high-street, creating a new way for communities to come together, with one class per week available on a donation-only basis, so everyone can afford to be part of our community. 
  • MasterPeace is an inclusive employer: with a female CEO and all-female founding team, alongside a gender, race and LGBTQ balanced professional artist instructor network, we are passionate about creating new jobs for creatives from all backgrounds.

-------------------------------------------

How can I support MasterPeace?

  • We need your help to open our doors. We’ve tested the concept works, and now we’re ready to go. We’ve found the perfect studio, just 5 minutes walk from Sloane Square and Victoria stations in the lovely Eccleston Yards. 
  • Your funding will help us create the gallery and studio, buy the equipment we need, including our light technology, train our instructors, and more. In short, your funding will help us make our dream a reality!
  • Please pledge as little or as much as you can: there is no pledge too small!  
  • Share our campaign with your friends, family, colleagues, the world!
  • Like & re-share our social promotions on Insta, Facebook & LinkedIn!
