Neither. Of. Us. Are. Artists. Not even close. We can not even stay in the lines when we color with our three year old.
We quickly found out that we did not need to be artists to create something we actually liked; all the while laughing our way through a fun date.
The artist leading the class suggested that we be creative and let our inner artist come out. That we did. Who knew we even had inner personalities as such?
While the entire class copied the original canvas by painting their backgrounds green both my husband and I created what we call a “sunset” background.
(If you don’t “see” what we think is a sunset, just imagine the sun setting behind our berry trees.)
By no stretch of the imagination do we believe we are artists now. Nor do we plan on quitting our day jobs. And we aren’t even sure we’ll be hanging the memory from our fun night out. What we have decided is that we will participate again in a paint night with our two best couple friends.
(P&A, GET READY; R&M have already agreed. Our triple date night ~ paint night will be happening in the near future!)
Our “date night ~ paint night” was a good one. It was good because it was time spent together doing something new with a table full of just as vulnerable and just as even matched not-so-artistic strangers who enjoy laughter & new friends as much as we do.
I recommend you try a Paint Night with your partner, family or friends; even if you don’t think you can paint. You might surprise yourself. You might even end up with some new art for your wall. If nothing else you might just have a great time doing something new with someone you enjoy being with.
Thank you to my mother-in-law for a thoughtful gift and a fun memory.

I did not receive goods/funds/sponsorship to write this review and personally do not recommend the particular paint night by this local San Diego company.
