If you haven’t already heard about Paint Nite, its a great North America wide organization that you should definitely check out! I had been to a Paint Nite with some friends, and I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. People who had never lifted a paintbrush in their lives were creating amazing works of art, and it really brought out the imaginative child in everyone.
I’m extremely excited (and lucky) to have the opportunity to share my love of the arts, and be a part of such an awesome initiative!
If you were thinking of checking out a Paint Nite, now is the time. There is a Groupon, which means the entire experience is only $27! Check out paintnite.com , or my personal Artist Page to pick your event :)
I attended a PaintNite in Toronto with a few friends. If you haven’t heard about PaintNite, it’s something worth checking out! They book out restaurants/ bars/ cafe’s throughout Canada & USA and local painters instruct you through a painting. It was definitely a step back into the past where we had only 5 very weak colors and two brushes (Big & Medium). Paintlounge in Markham was definitely better in terms of the quality and quantity of materials, and the difficulty of the painting, but PaintNite was fun in a different way. Everyone was free to express creatively, there were a lot of laughs and it was an extremely relaxed environment where giraffes could be green and skies could be yellow.
This has actually inspired me to host my own Paint Night so stay tuned :)
