MD as Artist – PaintNite

09/17/2013

Until last night this is the ONLY drawing I knew how to do. Every childhood art project was just this guy… sometimes I changed what clothes he wore. I never gave him hands.

It is a clown.  In case you were wondering.

Then I went to a Paint Nite. (Thanks, Groupon.)  It’s an art class in a bar so wine is encouraged and you take home a painting that you actually painted. What could be better?

Here's where the instructor takes you step by step through how to create the designated painting for the night.

http://paintnite.com/pages/home/index hosts these events in lots of cities with all kinds of artists and all types of paintings — lovebirds, sailboats, sunsets, Chicago skyline. You could create your own little gallery! Amy Jo (www.aymyjoarndt.com)  was our artist/instructor who showed the group each step then checked in with each artists and encouraged everyone to personalize their own canvas….very positive atmosphere in case you feel ‘art-imidated’.   There is even an intermission of sorts they call ‘drink and dry’ while you wait for the first layer of paint to dry.  They say watching paint dry is boing .. I beg to differ!

Paint Nite supplies the canvases.

Even the brushes ... everything but your beret!

Even the brushes … just bring your beret and creative spirit!

You can follow the teacher and paint exactly what she paints

Much improved from the clown!
