Paint nights such a popular trend that they have swept the restaurant scene, and now instead of going to painting studios, you do not need to go any further than your favorite bar or restaurant to learn how to paint something beautiful.  Paint nights are about learning to paint in a non-judgmental atmosphere with friends and easygoing teachers who are excited to guide you through a painting and through putting your own unique touches on the image that the group is focusing on.  Best of all, you get to spend time with friends, and take home a finished product that you can hang in your home or give as a gift!  Many of these paint nights are part of Paint Nite Long Island, where you must register online in advance of the event, so be sure to check that there are spots available.  Find a painting that speaks to you, then grab a friend and sign up for a night of creativity and fun!
