Is A Paint Party At The Mall Odd?

Hey Cuties,

I hope your Father’s Day weekend was a breeze. Mine was perfect; we showered Babe with love and silence, and then the kids and I took him out for a dope dinner.  Last week I attended my first paint nite event. People have been sipping and painting for some time now and although I wanted to try it I just hadn’t. Now I can put a check mark in that box.

Waiting to start…

Yup, we had a paint party in the mall and it wasn’t weird and strange like I thought. It was actually really dope. so dope people stood over our heads and watched and recorded us. You know because that isn’t’ creepy at all.

Canvas ready for painting…

Our amazing teacher helped us out a bit for the sake of time. She drew the hands making a heart shape. The rest is up to us.

Everyone had a set of five brushes to work with and a cup of water.  The colored piece of tape represented the size of the brush. Our instructor would tell us which color she recommends for each section.

Paint options…

Our paint was pre-poured for us with all the colors we would need. They would later add a drop of orange for the final step.

Myneko of Kreative Crafts was our teacher for the evening. She is a good time, she said the goal is to get the painting out of the car and into the house. She works the D(C)M(D)V(A) area and does much more than paint parties for adults and children.

Artistic expression in progress…

Everyone was so into their work, it looks serious but it was chill. We laughed, joked and got to know the people sitting around us.

Finishing touches…

This is my canvas on the far right, I was putting the finishing touches on my painting. I decided that I didn’t like the what should waves at the bottom of my ocean. You know because it doesn’t look like actual waves.

All done!

We had a good time and my fellow Bloggers Fatima, Off the Potomac and Shelly of Moms with Tots were there as well.

Big Thanks to St. Charles Town Center for having us. This was such a dope idea.

    This sounds like a fun experience. I haven’t been to a painting party, but it seems like it would be fun and relaxing.

    I also did Paint Nite a few months ago, we had ours at a restaurant! Love the piece you created, we had a flower in the moonlight. It was so much fun!

  19. Mary Edwards

    Totally not weird at all in my opinion. I can’t paint at all…but when I take these sessions it works great

    • MimiCuteLips

      Mary, painting isn’t my ministry either. They make it almost fool proof which is nice. You get so into it you forget you get really paint.

  20. HilLesha

    I’m not much of an artist, but I did something like this a couple of years ago with my husband. I was pleasantly surprised how fun it was!

  21. Kita

    I think I need to get my girls together and do one of these classes. Looks like fun. I’m sure some wine would make it even more fun. LOL

  22. Gabriel Bregg

    Not odd at all, would be a fun place to get people to join in or give feedback!
