Paint Nite: Take The Hedge Off
The Original Paint Nite: Unleash your inner artist
This event is for the kids, or adults, in the family and has all the fun of a regular Paint Nite event but in the comfort of your own home. If you want to draw, you will need paper, markers, crayons or colored pencils. If you have paint supplies, you will need paint, brushes, canvas, water, paper plate, paper towels, etc. We use primary colors (blue, red and yellow) and black and white paint. You will learn how to mix using just these colors. We typically use a larger flat brush for most backgrounds and a small detail brush; if you have a medium brush that will be helpful. Be creative and use what you have at home, maybe it is a recycled canvas, a piece of wood in the garage. We will show you how to create this picture in approximately 1.5 hours. Please go to Zoom.com to download the required software program (free). You will receive a one-time link to access the event.
NOTE: Recommended Supplies: Paint Nite supply kits and craft supplies are available for purchase at https://urbanpaper.square.site/ or you can use supplies you have at home. Some craft stores such as Michaels, Hobby Lobby and JoAnn Fabrics are either open or have curbside pick up. Check with your local crafter since some stores are opening up!
Art has been an integral part of my life as far back as I can remember. Where I lacked in a subject while going to school, I always tried to make it up by adding art into the assignment (didn’t always work in math class). In my youth I practiced the most common art forms like drawing, charcoal, crayon, and the like, however it wasn’t until I reached High School that I started dabbling in oil painting. Well life takes off fast and although I often did random art projects through the years, it wasn’t until around 2009 that I picked up art again, eventually exploring watercolor. It came very natural to me and I have won many awards for my paintings, but personally that doesn’t really matter much. To me, it has always been about the excitement of creating something from nothing. Besides the joy art provides for me, I also love participating with others while they discover the creativity that has been inside them all along.
