The Original Paint Nite: Unleash your inner artist

Looking for things to do in Durham, North Carolina? Join us for a dine and painting party in Brightleaf Square, at Clouds Brewing on Wednesdays! Get lost in a two-hour class as you dine, sip your wine or beer, conversing with friends through music and atmosphere. Not to mention you will develop a skill that you can take with you to build on forever. While guests will be guided through step-by-step instruction on a 16x20 inch canvas, they can also choose to paint what they please! There are no rules, just a lot of fun! So sign up for the painting that inspires you, then tweak it to make it your own! Whether you are on a date, celebrating a special occasion, or just wanting to enjoy the casual company of others, we will provide that fun for you at a class. We will bring the inspiration, but it’s up to you to get creative and go all out!

Meanwhile as you’re checking out the dinner menu, know that $6 flights are on special for all of Clouds beer. Or, enjoy half off a glass of wine. Here at this awesome brewery, you can make your way to the self serving tap. Taste them all! Be sure ask the service staff about retrieving the armband, as you get those creative juices flowing.  
Special Note: Food and beverages not included with ticket price

Seats are first come, first serve. This means if individuals are painting with others (how fun!) they are invited to arrive early. Placing items of insignificance to reserve seats, such as scrap pieces of paper post-it notes with names on them tend to work just fine. Many people use the early arrival to save seats in conjunction to an opportunity to dine first, which tends to be easier with more available space! Just be sure to let the awesome staff know you are with the Yaymaker group, since they have designated members to tend to our awesome parties.


Typically your host will provide a physical demonstration, as well as a small, printed out version of the painting everyone will be working on. (Approx. 4x6). Some may know that they have difficulties seeing. For individuals preferring a larger size, we suggest printing their own as they sign up!

Need help redeeming Groupons, or other special vouchers? To make sure that ticket codes are fully redeemed and your seat is reserved, go to your email, (or use the Groupon App) to view “My Groupons”. To redeem, click “Redeem”. Then, go to your copy and paste the 8-10 digit code from your voucher. Enter that code into the Yaymaker event of your choice when checking out on the website. www.yaymaker.com It’s that simple! This will help your instructor in knowing how many to set up for. Even more importantly, should an event sell out, often there will be little that can be done to accommodate more painters, and we want to be painting with YOU!

It’s time to see you there! Remember, no one is being graded, so let loose and get creative! Customize your masterpiece to make it as your own!

Cheers!

**Yaymaker is catered to an adult’s night out. Please make arrangements for small children.

 

**Thank you for understanding that classes are how our artists make a living. When having to reschedule for an event, we ask that this is done so at least 48 hours before that time so that we may make room for others wishing to use those seats. In a situation where rescheduling does not take place, we still reserve a right to charge if an event is sold out.

Your host

Yaymaker Host Janice Marie located in Rougemont, NC

Janice Marie has been painting for eighteen years. Art was taken to a professional level when moving to Georgia to attend Savannah College of Art and Design in 2004. Here, learning was stretched while tapping into other avenues, such with digital design, photography, visual effects, and in motion picture and music video production. With this, she graduated with a bachelor's degree in Broadcast Design and Visual Communications, exploring additional training in sciences. After a break from the art world and some traveling, she now credits life's experiences and deeper mysteries as her greatest teacher and source of inspiration. Eventually returning to Durham, NC, she spent some time working along side the Health Arts Network team for Duke, both on campus and in the hospital for gallery set ups, and healing through art therapy. Though at the end of the day, has found her heart to always belong with her first love of painting. "People may misunderstand the role of an artist," she recalls, "thinking that they just play. But design is a real concept that impacts our lives everyday without most of us ever considering it. Without this world, there wouldn't be your favorite clothing lines, music album art, DVD covers, or accessory packagings. Colors, for instance, are scientifically measured at different temperatures and have been proven to have a psycological affect on our moods and environment." She goes on. "As a professional, I can tell you not to dismiss those ads you see on televison and the internet. The fonts and designs were all strategically picked for a reason, not just to look pretty, but also to send a message." It has been a long time goal of her's to cultivate a creative space where people can come together for the sake of art and growing together in a way that society often limits us, a place where happiness is inspired, people are equalized, and where everyone has a freedom of self. So come out, relax, unwind, and drink creatively away from the mundane world. It's a judgment free zone. Here you can be walked through step by step instructions, or you can do what you please. Thinking outside of the box WILL be encouraged! Beginners and advanced artists of all skill levels are welcome. In these courses a coverage of a variety of subjects can be expected. From principles of design, color theory, depth of perspective, painting techniques, contrast, and more. This is perfect for a date night, an evening with the girls, or sign up to simply make more friends in the community. We supply the materials, all you have to do is come and explore a side to yourself you may have never known you had. It's fun, it's different, and you'll have a painting to take with you and show throughout the ages. Life is what you make it. Fun is how you have it. Create the things you wish existed.
