Paint Nite: Polka Dots Easter Bunny
The Original Paint Nite: Unleash your inner artist
For those of you who want to try something new in the comfort of your home (and kill some boredom), we bring you the Virtual Paint Nite! In this new twist on The Original Paint Nite, you can enjoy the experience you know and love right from your house, and still have the banter of an in-person event. Get step-by-step instructions from artist Jessi Adamson through a live-streaming site that allows you to chat and interact along the way. Use the supplies you already have at home or purchase your own supplies from a local business/online.
For this event you will need:
Canvas, board, cardboard, or paper - any size you want. The demo will be painted on a 16" x 20" canvas. You can even re-use a canvas you already have - just be sure to give it a coat of white paint or primer before the event!
Paint - any ACRYLIC paint, in colors red, yellow, blue, black, and white. Not tempera paint. The demo will use Sargent Art Acrylics. Liquitex Basics Acrylics and Artist's Loft Acrylics are also available at many retailers.
Brushes - 3 different sizes: Big, medium, and small. Any brushes you like will work, but the artist recommends White Taklon or another synthetic material.
Easel - optional! Prop your canvas up against something, lay it flat on the table, or find a tabletop easel at a retail store.
Retail stores to find supplies: Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Jo-Ann, Wal-Mart, Amazon.com, DickBlick.com, or a local art shop near you.
Other supplies you will need:
a cup for water
paper towels, rag, or cloth
paper plate, pallette, or plastic container lid
apron or old piece of clothing you don't mind getting messy
Grab a snack, pour a drink, and hop on to our live video streaming service. The link to join will be sent to your email on the day of the event.
Let's stay creative!
Stream from your computer, laptop, or smartphone from the safety of your own home.
Jessica has carried a pencil in her hand since the age of two. In school she was involved in many fine art classes, in addition to courses in architecture and interior design. She attended the University of North Texas where she received a Bachelor's degree in Studio Art with concentration in Drawing and Painting and a minor in Psychology. During college she began photo reproductions and continues to sell commissioned art today. For Jessica, painting is fun and rewarding, and she believes that you don't have to be an "artist" to feel the same way! Let her bring out the artist in you!
