Unleashing my Inner Artist – Paint Nite at McKibbins, Montreal

Last night, I attended a Paint Nite®  event at McKibbins Irish pub. The event is a two hour painting party held at different venues around Montreal. It’s a great way to have a fun night and create art in a casual environment with friends and have a few drinks.

We were all given the exact same materials: a white canvas, paints and paint brushes.

The instructor taught us how to paint the image step by step starting from a blank canvas to the finished painting. He always emphasized that the instructions were more like guidelines and we should feel free to experiment with different colors and techniques.

The most amazing thing is that we were able to complete the painting. What`s even more amazing is that each person’s painting was different; a unique reflection of that individual’s personality.

I am quite proud of how my painting turned out. Of course I gave my hummingbird a mohawk!

It was a great creative experience and a fun night out. I highly recommend it! Check out www.paintnite.com for event dates and venues. Tip: Try to get a Groupon or LivingSocial deal.
