Do you have an artist within you?
Are you an artistic type?
Do I have a budding artist hidden inside me somewhere? My wife reckons no.
So there is only one way to find out and that was to put my hand up to have ago at Paint It Up event that was being held on Monday the 16th of February at Northies Hotel at Cronulla.
SO WHAT IS PAINT IT UP?
The organisers/owners (Jane and Dan) of Paint It Up came across the idea while surfing the web in America. They were looking for something that people would enjoy doing at night for a few hours either with friends or as part of a group. Jane and Dan first started Paint It Up in Canberra just over six months ago and it has taken off like wildfire, so they decided to expand it to a variety of places in Sydney.
The great thing that I found out about Paint It Up is that you don't have to have any painting experience at all. Jane or one of her other artists will take you through step by step on how to create your own master peace. Maybe somewhere they will find the artist within me. I can only hope. For a cost of $65, they provide all the materials you need. Items like a variety of brushes, paints, apron and canvas and whatever else you need to create your own master piece. The event usually lasts for about two hours and because ours started at 7pm ,Terry and I decided to have dinner before we left home as we didn't want to miss out getting our seats.
OUR SUBJECT FOR THE NIGHT.
Even my wife thought that I had done a great job.
Would I go again? Yes. It was not only a great learning experience, it was plenty of fun even though those leaves were pretty hard to do.
Maybe next time I could have ago at the Jellyfish or No Surf Today. Jane might even do one on fish.
