Painting with Family and Friends

image

A few weeks ago, I experienced my first ever paint nite. I’m sure you’ve heard of these- you go to a restaurant and order food/drinks and proceed to eat and drink while a painting “instructor” walks you through the steps of recreating a specific picture. It’s really just an excuse to get out for a girl’s night (though there were a few men there) and do something different.

I have to say, it was a lot of fun! I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I really enjoyed myself. I went with my sister; my mom; my husband’s sister and mother; and my brother’s wife and her sister and mother. It was neat to get to hang out with everyone, especially my brother’s wife and her family since I don’t get the chance to do that very much.

Our instructor was really fun and friendly, and she did a great job of breaking down the painting so that you could follow along. And in the end, everyone ended up with paintings that weren’t half bad!

Have you ever done one of these painting events? What did you think?
