There’s a new cultural phenomenon in town – Paint Night. Gather with your friends for an evening of creating a work of art. Teachers supply you with a canvas, paint, brushes, and instruction on how to create your own painting.
All you provide is an evening of your time, curiosity about your own creative juices, and a group of friends to share the evening. While you sip your favorite beverage and enjoy some snacks, you pick up your brush and find your creative muse.
Working from a painting of a famous artist, you experiment with design, composition, color and techniques with your brushes, and are able to take home your very own creation. Everyone else in the room is also at work, and enjoying their own creativity.
Art Accelerated has sponsored several paint nights in Tillamook, partnering with the Pelican Pub, with the proceeds supporting Art Accelerated’s youth art classes, as well as raising money for the Oregon Food Bank. We have more paint nights in the works, including a benefit for the local Serenity Club.
Other paint nights are popping up around town, as well, including the Tillamook High School charity drive’s annual paint night and Blue Heron’s Vine Gogh series.
Check out our website and our Facebook page for coming Paint Nights. Register early, as they sell out!
