"In just about two hours, while you’re sipping on a cocktail, our performing artists will guide you through each painting so that you come up with your own unique masterpiece at the end of the night that you will be amazed YOU created. We provide everything you will need: canvas, paints, brushes and even a smock. You just bring your fun loving friends and enjoy. "
I'm not sure if there are many people like myself who have always wanted to express their creativity but not really sure of their artistic greatness. I know we all had the elementary school art classes that made us believe that we were destined for artistic greatness.
This past weekend I took a girlfriend out for her birthday, where we unleashed our inner Picasso and created works of art. We attended a Paint Nite event at a local restaurant by purchasing tickets on line through Groupon.com
I went into the event with no expectations. I was eager to see how someone was going to instruct me to recreate a painting. When we arrived my friend thought that we would have stencils. Nope, 2 brushes, 4 blobs of paint, white, read, yellow and black, napkins, and a cup of water. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed expressing my artistic side in trying to replicate the example. The wonderful thing about art, is that it is an individual expression of what you see and feel. Everyone's painting, while similar was very different. Each painter added their own unique flare to their artwork, creating a one of a kind piece of art.
If you haven't tried something like this before, I would absolutely recommend it. It is a great date night event, or an evening out with friends. It pleasantly cost effective at about $25/person, and having locations in various restaurants, you can grab a bite to eat when you have completed your art.
When its all done you can hang your piece of art somewhere in your home or office. Take a look at my masterpiece! Tag us on Facebook and Instagram with your paint nite creations.
Maybe this can be your weekend plans.
