Painting Date Nights

After the success of our pottery date nights, we are now offering date nights in the world of painting!

Come express yourself through paint. Each session will feature a different artist/instructor that will lead you through a step by step process appropriate for any beginner. Allow the paint brush to initiate new conversations and experiences, while proceeds from this event support our Bursary Program. Experience something new while giving back.
