Paint Nite: African Sun
The Original Paint Nite: Unleash your inner artist
Staying in grows old pretty fast! If you’re looking for ways to entertain yourself, Virtual Paint Nite has all the fun and interaction of a regular Yaymaker event from the comfort of your home. Grab a snack, pour a drink, and let's get creative VIRTUALLY! #virtualpaintnite
This event will be held through the popular video conferencing platform, Zoom. It will feature a group size similar to that of a regular in-venue Paint Nite event, and allow for screensharing for extra one-on-one time with your host. Instructions for log-in will be provided the day of the event via email.
This is a Bring-Your-Own-Supplies event. A list of suggested supplies are provided below, but let's get creative and use whatever you have at home!

Originally from Barrie, I moved to Vancouver after graduating from the BBA program at Wilfrid Laurier University in order to snowboard and find a job.. but mostly snowboard. It was in Vancouver that I applied to be an artist with Paint Nite, and soon a part-time position became a full-time passion. So naturally, when I moved back to my University town of Kitchener-Waterloo, I decided to bring Paint Nite with me! I have since brought Paint Nite to surrounding areas such as Cambridge and Guelph, and most recently back to my home town of Barrie. I have an interest in anything creative and painting has always been a hobby of mine. I have experimented with water colours and oils, but painting with acrylics has always been my favourite. With years of experience, practice, and only a little fine arts education, I firmly believe (and am the prime example) that anyone can paint. So even if you've never picked up a paintbrush before, pick that up in one hand and a wine glass in the other - because drinking creatively with me is a great way to start painting!
