Paint Nite In Boston Review (Plus Special Discount for my Readers!)

Painting, chatting and drinking? Sounds like my kind of night.

My awesome friend Amy over at craft and fashion blog Creative Soul Spectrum, received an invitation to attend a Paint Nite event, and lucky for me, she brought this gal along!

Sounds cool, but what the heck is paint night?

Paint Night happens at different bars all around Boston. Each week, there are over 20 different paint nites–casual painting classes with instructors who teach you how to create a specific painting. You choose which painting you’d like to do before you take the classes so you know what masterpiece you’ll be whipping up.

The Paint Nite we attended featured an adorable painting of a champagne bottle popping with confetti in the air. I’ve opened a few $4 Andre bottles in my hay day, so I felt like this was right up my alley. When we got to the event, we grabbed aprons and paint and picked our station, all set up with an easel, paint brushes and water (just like kindergarten!).

No need to worry if you’re not an artist, this class is for everyone.

The instructor was so helpful and went through each step of the painting with us. She even came over to each person individually to give advice, fix nicks and tell us not to stress, our paintings were going turn out beautiful!

Step 1: Background

Step 2: Outline champagne glass

Step 3: Create the cork, and personalize your bottle

Step 4:  Add confetti!

As you can see, our champagne bottles came out very different! It was so fun to see how everyone created their own unique pieces. I would highly recommend Paint Nite to anyone looking for something different to do in Boston. Especially for those who want an after-work activity with friends or significant others, this is your go-to! You can relax, drink, listen to music and find your inner artist. I know I found mine.

Now for the best part! As my reader, you get a discount code to any Paint Nite! Treat yourself to 15% off by using code “loveepaints” when you order online. Valid through June.

Disclosure: I was provided with a complimentary ticket from Paint Night for review purposes. All opinions are honest and my own.
