I went to a Paint and Sip for the first time last night with my girlfriend. We got tickets for $15 on Groupon…..it doesn’t get much better than that.
Hosted by Paint Boire (you can look them up at paintboire.com) at Rocky’s Bar and Restaurant, located at 460 West 34th Street, was Paints, Pints and Pizza. There was approximately 35-40 people at the event and I must say, I would definitely want to attend another event.
The instructor was very funny, witty and personable. He came around to check on everyone and offered to touch up any mistakes on the canvas that would have otherwise been difficult for the patron to mend. One woman actually wrote “Help Me!” on her canvas and he was able to transform it.
As you can see, my friend took a different route with her painting and the instructor totally encouraged it. In fact, several people ended up with paintings nothing similar to what was being taught.
I am someone who has zero drawing/painting skills. I am one step above drawing stick figures for people. If I can walk out with my painting looking as decent as it did, anyone can!
If you’ve never participated in a paint and sip, I recommend it. It is perfect for girls night out, guys night out or a date. You’d be surprised how fluid your brush skills start getting with a glass of wine and music. (S/N: they offered a special of happy hour priced drinks for anyone at the event)
