Growing up, I always said I wanted to be an artist. Funny thing is I never took much interest into it post-kindergarten.
Fast forward twenty years later, I awakened this locked-up dream by happenstance of being approached to come in to try a class at The Paint Bar. It began with an Acadia Sunset.
Upon entering, I stood in front of a few tables with blank canvases and brushes. To your left was a wine and beer bar. I love that they had drinks there. That definitely helped me ease into my nervousness of painting my first real canvas.
In addition, there was also Ari. He led the class and was wonderful and charismatic, helping every step of the way. Literally, I’d ask him in every step to critique and or review my canvas.
But seriously, thank goodness for that wine; we knew that things were going to be a bit troublesome when I couldn’t get the paints on my plate.
I mean, how could this not turn it to a masterpiece right?
I’m so artsy, you already know.
Paint Night was so much fun. The class was 3 hours but time flew like crazy. In the background between learning the steps to do the painting, there was some nice music. At one point, Frozen’s Let It Go came on and everyone burst into song. It was magical. I definitely will be heading back in for another paint night. It was a great way to spend some time in Boston doing something out of the norm. It’s perfect for a first date or weeknight affair.
