The Original Paint Nite: Unleash your inner artist

We’re back baby! Who needs a nite out? We all do!  

Join us for a socially distant outdoor Paint Nite event at Rideau Sports Centre. 

No experience required! Just follow along while our Master Artist guides you step-by-step through the featured painting in about two hours. If you’re feeling creative, change the colours to suit your décor or go completely rogue! This is your creative license! We provide most the painting supplies: a 16”x20” canvas, acrylic paint, brushes, music, and a good time. Come out early to The Bridge Public Eatery & Restaurant before we get started! The Bridge is nestled along the banks of the Rideau River and has incredible patios in the summertime, cozy, welcoming atmosphere in the winter. Check out their menu and be sure to mention you’re with Paint Nite when you come in. Secure your seats 15 minutes before start time, especially if part of a large group. Food and drinks are available for purchase from the venue and are NOT included in the ticket price. Outside food and drink are not allowed - NO BYOB. Events are for adults, 19+ only. *-


**Event will be relocated indoors if weather is unfavourable**

With my energetic and outgoing personality, I like to create a stress-free atmosphere where the only expectation is to have fun! I love to encourage you to follow your artistic instinct and make the painting your own. Let loose, get messy, and let's change up your regular night out; I can't wait to see what you create!

The host was so fun! She brought energy, music, and cats, and made painting feel easy for everyone. We all had a great time.
