About the event

What is Paint Night?

Paint night has become super popular in the last couple of years, but if you’ve never been to paint night before, you may find yourself wondering what the heck it is. Sure you’ve seen the photos on Facebook of all your friends holding up identical paintings, clutching wine glasses in their hands, but you’ve probably asked yourself, first, why didn’t I get invited? And also, what are they doing? Even if you think you know what paint night is about, we bet you don’t know that there are many different types of paint night out there, or that some studios let you pick your own painting medium. Well, good news is we’re here to explain it all to you.

You get to paint with your partner

At its core, paint night is a creative way to hang out with your partner. You get to go to a local bar or to a painting studio, hang out with your better half, and create a masterpiece. Most studios will put their own spin on things, but that’s it in a nutshell. Most of these painting studios also have cool cafes with excellent selections of tea, coffee, and cakes—and sometimes wine and beet too!

You learn to paint

At paint night you learn to paint. Don’t worry, you’re not just set loose on the canvas. There’s a Master Art Teacher there to help you.  Paint night is normally two hours and begin with an introduction in which the teacher preps you to begin your painting. You’ll learn about mixing colours, the application of paint on the canvas, and how to create good composition. In the most popular configuration of this trend, everyone in the class is working toward creating their own version of the same painting. The teacher will lead your through the painting step-by-step, helping you to create the image yourself, and then while you’re working he or she will wander through the easels offering advice and answering questions.

You get to work with different media

Most studios work with acrylic paint, but if you do a little research you can also find paint nights that will let you play with different media. The best part about paint night is that you can paint and have fun without buying all the expensive supplies, you know what we mean. Worst of all is when you pick watercolour but then, after buying all the supplies, realize you want to go oil. You cannot use a watercolour brush to paint with oils. It’s sad, but it’s true.

You can drink alcohol

Obviously this is a huge part of the appeal. Some studios have bars in the studio so you can drink while you paint. Other paint nights host workshops in bars so you can, again, drink while you paint. Other studios aren’t licensed but you can apply for a special occasion permit for those special, bachelorette occasions.

It’s therapeutic

No, for real, painting is really good for you! It’s great to get out, do something with your hands, and shut down your brain for a while. Painting workshops are a favorite among those who like to try new things, meet new people, and explore new sides to themselves. At these painting studios you have a chance to relax for an hour or two and give your brain a little vacation.
