Everyone needs a fun night out every once in a while. Things like work, volunteering, and other responsibilities take precedence in our lives the vast majority of the time. When so much of our focus is on our responsibilities, it can be difficult to change tracks to a fun and carefree event, which makes planning a night out more difficult than it needs to be. The most common ways to spend a night out is at a relaxing dinner or going to the local movie theater. However, there are so many possibilities to choose from and more are coming on to the scene all of the time. While sticking to classics such as bowling alleys and museums is an excellent option, there is a new event on the rise that any adult should definitely consider. This up and coming event is a paints and wine nights. This even comes in several forms and we will be exploring each one. Most people prefer to know exactly what they are getting into when trying something new. What you will find here is a basic guide to all of the information you need before heading out to your first paint and wine night.
The first thing you need to know is how exactly a paint and wine night works. Each person who attends pays a specified fee. For this fee, the participant receives everything they need for the night including a canvas, paints, and brushes as well as wine glasses and wine. Some Fundraiser events charge lower fees and ask that you provide your own canvas for the event. Once the class begins, an instructor will demonstrate how to begin painting a predetermined design. The entire class will be working on the same design. While painting, each person will be served a glass of wine to sip. This continues until everyone has completed their painting. At the end of the night, everyone gets to take home their creation to show off to friends and family.
There are quite a few different varieties of paint and wine nights, the first type we are going to talk about is the fundraiser. This is when a business or organization put together a paint and wine night as a means to raise money for a specific purpose. Generally, the organization finds ways to get at least some of the supplies needed at a discount or donated. Other times, the organization provides the wine and an instructor but asks participants to bring at least some of the necessary painting supplies. Either way, it provides an enjoyable evening for participants and a great way for the organization to raise money.
Next, we are going to discuss the type of paint and wine at night that you can make a regular event. This type of event is a permanent business that provides paint and wine nights regularly. Some of these businesses offer classes every night and others have class once or twice per week. It is quite common for this type of business to get as much business from return participants as it does from newcomers. This is a great event for a group of friends, date night, and small groups of family members among others. It is also a great idea for anyone looking for a night out alone.
Another is an annual event that takes place once a year. This type is very similar to the fundraiser version and is often one and the same. If an organization has a paint and wine night and it goes over very well, they may choose to make it an annual event. Other ways for an event such as this to become annual is for it be a part of a bigger event such as a fair or festival. These big events always bring in big crowds which mean there will be more participants.
There are many different names for a paint and wine night. Sometimes it is simply called a “paint and wine night”. Other times it may be called “paint and sip” or something else entirely. It may be named after a person or organization it is hosted by or dedicated to or it may be named for a town or event that it is a part of.
So, how do you find a paint and wine night in your area? There are several ways to find a class near you, it all depends on if you are looking for a permanent business or a one-time event. If you are looking for the latter, it is best to keep an eye out for posters at local places as well as posts on your social media pages. This is where most events will be promoted. If you are looking for something more permanent, the best thing to do is search online.
When it comes to finding a regular class in or near your area, you will need to head over to your most preferred browser. Once your browser is open and loaded completely, type in a few relevant words. It is important to remember that if you want to get as many results as you can, it is best to keep your search term as simple as possible. Some good examples of search terms include “paint and wine nights in my area”, “local paint and wine events”, and “paint and wine near me”. This will provide the widest range of results. If you want more focused results, it is best to add the name of your city or town into the search. If you are not finding the results that you want, change your search terms one word at a time until you start seeing the results that you want. It is entirely possible that you will not find exactly what you are looking for with your first search. Do not give up, keep trying until you get the results that you desire.
All in all, an evening spent at a paint and wine event will be something that you will never forget. It can be an incredibly bonding experience if you go with someone else or a very freeing experience if you go alone. There is no pressure to be the “best”, only an air of fun and enjoyment.
