Bring the family to Ricky’s Deerfoot Meadows for our NEW teen-friendly events!! (Ages 13 +)
Our venues are known for their great atmosphere, service, and food. Sometimes, you may wonder if you’ve arrived at a little out-of-the-way basement pub where guys named Norm will be the next to join the party, but that’s because neighbourhood pubs and lounges have a warm, welcoming vibe, and that’s what you’ll find with Team Merlot. Need a little extra help? A little extra time? A little encouragement? Well...you’ve found it! We’re all about personality and passion for art, adventure and...a little sassy attitude.
There’s no experience necessary and we’ll provide all the supplies, so you don’t have to worry about a thing (except having a great time!). Food and drink may be purchased at the event.
The event begins promptly at the start time listed above. Please allow extra time to find parking and get settled. If you're coming with a group (yay, how fun!) make sure you arrive early to get seats together. If you're planning to eat dinner before the event, please inform the host/hostess that you're with Paint Nite® and check in with us to reserve your seats.
Ricky’s All Day Grill has been welcoming families and friends with great food done right for 50 years. Our passion for food shines through everything we do, and our heart has the grill marks to prove it. Morning, noon and night, we serve a full menu of satisfying selections in a comfortably modern environment that’s perfect for gatherings. So come in. Relax. And enjoy the mouthwatering taste of Ricky’s All Day Grill, anytime.
Art has always been an outlet for me, from making music to drawing and painting. I would literally draw, paint and write on anything I can lay my hands on. I have painted on rocks and glued googly eyes on them as well as leftover firewood. And then my fur baby and I would cycle around the city to leave these pieces in random spots. My subject matter mostly comes from my life experiences. Art to me is another form of expressing myself and sharing a message with the world. I graduated from Victoria University, Australia in Multimedia Systems majoring in Digital Arts and about a decade ago in Montreal, I was introduced to oil paint and started transferring my imaginations with oil instead. At this moment, I was also doing freelance fashion and wedding photography and it was mind blasting!! With all that combined – I took art and mixed media to a whole new level! Now in Calgary, I have expanded my horizons over to Acrylic Paint and Wood Burning – pyrography and paint !?!?!?! Somebody, please calm me down ;p On that note, I am very excited to share my passion and energy as a Paint Nite Instructor and looking forward to seeing all your beautiful personalities come through on our big blank canvas!
