Paint Nite Dallas | 2013 Paint Nites Across DFW

28 Aug

paintnited

The coolest new activity to strike the canvasses in DFW only require a brush, a brew and a creative point of view. Become an “arteest” in just one night at one of the many Paint Nite Dallas events hosted across the metroplex. Paint Nite Dallas will unlock the “Picasso” within that you may have never realized you had. If it doesn’t do that, then you still have fun trying and sipping on other kinds of “creative juices”.

Remember me?

Set aside a couple of hours one night and about $45 to dibble and dabble your brushes into some acrylic paint as you attempt to recreate a popular piece along with a room full of other adventurous Texans in one of your favorite neighborhood bistros. Paint Nite provides all the supplies. Go hard in the paint and make not only Bob Ross proud, but you would’ve done yourself a favor by simply trying on your own and adding your own style in the process. At the end of your DFW Paint Nite, you’ll get to take home the masterpiece you created on a 16″ x 20″ canvas. The awesome thing about Paint Nite Dallas is no experience is required! Catch you at the next PND!
