When I first heard my friend’s idea to have a couple of us participate in a Paint Nite event for her birthday celebrations, I did not quite know what to expect. I think it is safe to say that all of us were slightly nervous about this whole artistic endeavour. Regardless of the nerves, it was an exciting event and we all set out to paint the masterpiece of all pieces. Here is a link to the website where you can book your spot (opens in new window): Paint Nite
What is Paint Nite?
A fabulous concept of a group of people meeting at a pub for drinks, socializing and expressing your more creative side. This is a two hour event, with an artist guiding you through the painting in a step-by-step procedure. You are never left to wonder about how to go about this picture. It is such a fun approach, no stress, all fun! …. And you get to keep your artwork! 😀
Here is the picture that we had to re-create at our event!
And here are our end results (you won’t believe how difficult it was to do that simple boat!!) 😀
Where does Paint Nite take place?
Paint Nite’s are hosted all over the world, including locations in the United States, Canada, South Africa, Argentina, United Kingdom and Australia. In Canada (might be true in other countries as well), there is a groupon available as well. And after the session you get a discount code for future sessions!
I highly recommend this for everyone – we had sooooo much fun!! All of us are planning to do this again sometime (I also plan to take my husband for a session soon…. tsk tsk!). 🙂 Let me know if you have been what your experience was, or better yet, send me a couple of your photos!! And if you haven’t been yet, go GO GO!!! 😀
