If you’re looking for a creatively fun night out in the Baltimore/Annapolis area, you should definitely head over to Paint ‘N pARTy of Maryland!
Located in Crofton, Paint ‘N pARTy encourages you to find your inner artist while enjoying a party type atmosphere. Each class is led by Vivian and Ginger, two sincerely warm and friendly women who make you feel right at home. The studio is very charming and showcases Ginger’s soft touches and painting designs that help to serve as inspiration for your own artwork. Vivian is wonderfully helpful in explaining the process of how the project will develop over the course of the session and reassures you that you will have a masterpiece of your very own when you leave that evening.
The best part is that there is absolutely no artistic requirements needed, so anyone can join in. Paint ‘N pARTy has even hosted special events for parent and children groups (recommended for ages 8+). What a great way to spend some quality time together and throw in a bit of entertainment!
I recently had the pleasure of attending a Paint ‘N pARTy session this past week and I can attest that this truly is for everyone. Here is a picture of myself and my mother-in-law with our koi paintings. I could probably count on one hand the number of times either of us have ever held a paintbrush, and yet look…
The “party” gives you the opportunity to mingle with a room full of great people, some who are new like myself, and many others who are repeat customers. There is a certain camaraderie between artists and instructors alike with plenty of laughter and reassuring words to be had by all. There is also a table set up where everyone can bring a treat or meal to share (or not!) along with whatever libations they might choose to sip on. I was ready to get down to business and keep focused so I used my better judgment and decided to leave my wine at home, but alcoholic beverages are permitted.
Here are a few examples of some past themes Paint ‘N pARTy of Maryland have hosted…
Aren’t they beautiful? Completely worthy of hanging in your home for all to see.
