The creators of Paint Nite started their on-location art parties as a creative alternative to a night out with friends. Inspiring people to drink creatively at bars in more than 80 worldwide cities, their events have been touted by New York Magazine as the Best Friend Date and profiled by The Daily Beast. During each two-hour session, participants create a 16x20” reproduction of the night's chosen artwork while sipping a beer, mixed drink, or glass of wine purchased from the bar. Paint Nite provides all other materials, including paint, brushes, canvases, easels, and aprons. Local artists guide participants through each step of the painting process from mixing colors to brush stroke and encouraging creative expression in a supportive, positive atmosphere.
