LOCAL SPOTLIGHT ON BUSINESS: DATE WITH PAINT NIGHT. #SUPPORTTHEARTS
March 21, 2017 By Tricia Wehner
As a blogger, I think it’s one of my most important duties to help support and promote local small business. Not only do they need our help to bring more awareness to them, but we need them in our neighborhoods to bring forth new ideas/culture as well as to keep some of our old traditional ones. Last weekend, I had an opportunity to visit a wonderful Canton area restaurant (The Chasseur) and attend a Date With Paint Pet Portrait painting event. You guys… I had pretty amazing time there !
What IS Date With Paint ? Now, I know that over the past couple of years, there has been an influx of “Sip N Paint” events popping up all over the country. I think that they are super fun and are great ways for friends to gather, have fun, and tap into their artistic side. With that being said, Date With Paint (DWP) is a little different than what those are. Ania Milo, the owner and artist behind the DWP events, has made her paint nights more personal. How, you ask? Well, instead of a group of people choosing from one or two choices, you get to paint something meaningful to you.
You get a chance to paint your pet. How cool is that?!
When you register for one of Date With Paint pet portraits painting events, you email a photo of your own fur baby for sketching. The sketch she does is the blueprint for your painting.
At the event, you paint to heart's desire. Using your pet’s photo as your guide, you create the most beautiful likeness of your pet. But you’re not limited to painting in living color; you can do psychedelic or rainbow or any color version you’d like. During the entire event, Ania and her team of professional artists are there to assist you with your painting. You receive as much or as little help as you want. That’s what makes DWP events so much more fun… your painting is one of a kind to you!
I really enjoyed my first paint night with Ania and the rest of class. I brought my close friend Nina with me, and she painted her beloved cat Robyn.
The class lasted about 3 hours, but I honestly lost track of time because I was focusing on painting my Roxy. I was so into bringing the sketch to life, I forgot to eat the delicious flatbread we had ordered… and I barely drank any of my drink. YES… the event is that engrossing! I highly recommend putting aside a night to spend with friends to do something a little different… Date With Paint!
