Fuck "Paint Nights"
It drives me crazy to hear people say "oh, I'm not creative" or "I could never do that". I fully reject the idea that you have to be "artsy" to make art, and the best the rest of us can hope for is paint-by-numbers.
So I put together a group of friends and created an event series around focusing on the process of artmaking rather than the product. We're taking the best part of paint nights (low pressure, casual drinking, SNACKS) and letting people explore with exercises like making art with your eyes closed or sculpting one of your body parts.
