The Paint Bar-Boston

A few weeks ago, JenniSixx and I spent the afternoon at 
In one word, it was AWESOME.

We had so much fun. Although, it was a bit 
nerve-wrecking for first time painters, like ourselves, 
but oh what a blast we had.

We picked the class that was painting this picture below. 
 It's the bridge over the frog pong in the public gardens.
How pretty is it?

My background
The talented ART student who sat next to me who
kindly helped me.
My painting, I know so bad.


The instructor was so fantastic. 
She was so friendly,helpful and positive.
 She kept telling us to breath and just have fun. 
I will be honest, I struggled and at one point, almost got up and left. 
I had made a mistake on the bridge and I thought I was going to cry. 
However, the instructor knew I was upset and came right over to help me correct it.
Honestly, she made all the difference in the world. 
I wanted my painting to come out perfect. 
It didn't but that's ok.
It was such a fun thing that
I can't wait to do it again.
Next time, I will relax more.
Well, I will try.

They have a bar which sells adult beverages and snacks.
A joke is the more you drink, the better your painting will be.
They also let you bring in drinks from outside.
However, you cannot bring adult beverages in
as that is actually against the law.

The class is 2.5 hours but you do get a 15 minute break.
Time flew by as you were painting.

If you are in the Boston area, you totally should check this place out.
It's so much fun. 

They also have locations in Newton and in Falmouth.
Visit, The Paint Bar for more information.


Have you been to a paint bar??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!
Best, Marie

  3. I've never done this, but I'm always baffled when I see everyone's end results. They always look really good, no matter whether or not the person is artistic! I just feel like if I did it I'd be the first person ever to have a really awful one hahaha.

  4. This places looks so fun!!!! That Boston waterfront picture is gorgeous! I always see people taking the painting classes at sips and strokes and stuff around here but never consider going myself. Maybe I should look in to it!

  15. I did one of these in NYC but they didn't let you bring anything in (food or drinks). I want to go to one that is BYOB, but the classes fill up so fast! I'm glad you stuck it out- everyone's comes out so different, but I definitely don't think yours came out bad at all!
