Join us for a VIRTUAL Original Paint Nite party online and see what all the hype is about! Our master artist Lisa Middendorf will take you step-by-step from a plain canvas or something else to paint on ( you determine the size) to a completed painting!  All this from the comfort of your own home or anywhere you can stream our PaintCast! No experience necessary! Yaymaker events give you a list of all you need to get making – join us and let's make some YAY!

Supplies you need:  -  Something to paint on ( canvas, Multi-media Paper, canvas board, slate, wood panel, etc), acrylic paints (white, blue, red, yellow, brown, black or substitute other colors),paper plate, paper towel, chalk or pencil, water cup to clean your brushes, a large flat brush, a medium flat brush, a small liner brush- a sense of adventure and a willingness to try!

“Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ~ Pablo Picasso I grew up on a small farm near Carlisle PA and was inspired mostly by my mother, who despite being a busy farm wife, found time in her busy week to nurture her creative side with painting and crafting. I currently live in Dillsburg PA, with my husband, 2 kids and 4 cats. I grew up with nature and have been drawing and painting my environment my entire life, mostly self-taught by classes, courses, and YouTube videos. For me, anyone can be taught techniques but if you can put down your vision on paper, canvas, or other media, even poorly, you are an ARTIST.  This is why Paint Nite is so special to me. I've been guiding people on the "how-tos" for many years now but being able to share my love of painting has been the greatest joy of all.  Let me help you put aside your daily routine and problems and for 2 hours, let's explore another place where what you create will nurture a place in your soul that you may have forgotten ever existed.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with her. She was helpful, patient, and very encouraging. I would certainly take a class from her again.

Amazing host. She gave people enough time for people to complete steps and even gave a more detailed view of how to create the more intricate parts of the picture. Would definitely look for another session with her.
