Paint Nite – Where the Creative Juices and Alcohol Doth Flow

Ever fancied yourself as an underrated Picasso – well Paint Nite might be just the thing for you. Paint Nite seamlessly blends two favourite human past times – art and drink. I recenly attended a Paint Nite in Toronto and not only were my creative juices flowing but so was the White Zinfandel.

The 2-hour Paint Nite painting parties are held daily with 25 people in attendance. We were luckily guided step-by-step by a lovely lady named Tara, who was great fun and kept the room entertained. Everyone was instructed on how to draw the same picture and it was cool to see how wildly different many of them were. I enjoyed seeing my canvas start off incredibly bare with endless possibilities and slowly  transpire into something ‘art like’.

Paint Nite really does make art acceseible and the atmospehere and ambience (proabaly helped along by the drinks) makes for a non-judgmental and relaxed atmosphere, with many of the participants admitting to having not painted since elementary school.

If you think you might be interested in getting your hands dirty then check out the Paint Nite events calendar. Tickets cost $25 per person plus an extra $3.25, but it is well worth it.

You get to take your finished masterpiece home and hang it in your humble abode in the place that it will receive most compliments. You are officially an artist (pronounced arteeeest)
