With the colder weather approaching it’s time for Long Islanders to begin looking indoors for the majority of their weekly entertainment, and although this may seem like a decrease in things available to do, it really just makes way for even more fun and unique activities to try. One of fun, unique activities being paint nights! Paint nights are casual style art classes that often take place in bars, restaurants or art studios, but there’s a twist.
During these art classes you can feel free to bring and uncork your own bottle of wine, or order up your favorite cocktail at the bar, and sip on your drink while you paint and socialize with those sitting next to you. These events are not only ideal atmospheres for meeting new people they’re also great for hosting events, like bachelorette parties and girls nights out. Even if you don’t consider yourself to be an artist these classes can be a lot of fun and your artistic skills and abilities may even turn out to surprise you.
A great website to browse for paint night events going on around you is PaintNite. PaintNight lets you search different areas, tells you the difficultly level of the class and how many spots are still left before the class is filled up.
Here are a few places on Long Island offering paint night events - be sure to call ahead and inquire about class availability and pricing.
- Paint and Sip Nights at The Painted Canvas – Wading River, NY
- Paint the Town Studio – Huntington, NY
- Wine and Design – Syosset, NY
