Safari #62: Paint Nite

Learning to paint in elementary school was fun, and it most likely included messy fingers and a sippy cup of your favorite juice.  Today the expereince can still be just as fun - minus the messy fingers and the addition of a different kind of juice.

Transform your sippy cup into a wine glass, add paint brushes and a canvas, and you've got a modern day learn to paint class.

Paint Nite Boston offers approachable and fun learn to paint classes that focus on small steps to build a larger masterpiece.  A lesson incorporates mixing paints, blending colors, basic brushstrokes, and other techniques.  After securing a ticket, you can make your reservation based on date, time, and desired painting.  For my class, I selected a sunset.

Paint Nite is a fun and inexpensive way to enjoy an evening with friends and awaken your own creativity.

My Tips

  • Book Early.  Many online coupons are available from companies such as Groupon or LivingSocial.  While the coupons are easy to obtain, securing your desired date, time, and painting can be difficult. 
  • Many Choices.  There are many local companies offering learn to paint classes in Boston.  If you're located closer to downtown, Paint Nite is a great option.  If you're located west of Boston, The Paint Bar in Newtonville is also an excellent choice.

Special thanks to Jen for suggesting the activity and doing it with me!
