Paint Nite: Impressionist Monet Water Lilies
The Original Paint Nite: Unleash your inner artist
Welcome to our Virtual Paint Nite Event. You will need Zoom to stream our live virtual event so please go to zoom.com and download the free software. We will be sending you a Zoom link prior to your event and you will use this link to access the event. The Artist will spend a few minutes getting you acclimated to the virtual software.
For Paint Events, you will need supplies. You can purchase them from your local Michael's Store, Joanne’s or Dick Blick’s. You will need the following paint:
Titanium White, Phtalo Blue, Mars Black, Bright Red, and Chrome Yellow. Canvas size is up to you, but we recommened a 12 x 16 canvas. You will need a 3 piece brush set with one medium flat brush, one round, and one small brush for details. Paper Plates, a cup for water, and paper towels will be needed to clean the brushes in between colors. We do not believe that you need an easel as you can lay the canvas down on a surface which is protected by some kind of cover or plastic table cover. You are more than welcome to purchase an inexpensive easel. Please note that this purchase can be used for multiple events in the future and it's always nice to have these kinds of supplies at home, especially if you have kids.
The rest is the same fun that you always experience, but in the comfort of your own home
