It was a couple of years ago when I was watching an episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County where the girls got together for a private painting lesson. I immediately Googled “painting classes” on Long Island. And that’s when I first heard about Paint the Town; the art studio that combines painting, music, and a fun environment!
I recently went to Paint the Town located at 17 Green Street in Huntington with my sister-in-law and her two friends. When we first walked in I was immediately impressed by the design of this quaint little art studio. Artwork covered the walls full of bright colors that instantly made me happy. We made our way up the stairs and passed the bar (yes I said bar, but we will get to that shortly) and picked a spot amongst the 25 canvases that were set up for the class. It was time to paint.
Included in our class was the canvas, the three brushes we would need to use, and an endless amount of paint. Our instructor was funny and lively and she showed us step by step instructions on what to do. And like I was saying earlier, they have a liquor license, so although they are not yet serving drinks, you are free to bring your own.
One of my favorite things about the class was that they encourage you to be yourself and do whatever you wanted. They urged you to be creative. If you want to use different colors than the original, do it.
The class was so much fun and definitely worth the $40. It was a different spin on a night out. We painted together, sang along to the great music they played, and just simply enjoyed ourselves. We laughed at each other’s mistakes, and complimented each other work, and in the end we all took home a piece of memorabilia that we can have forever.
The classes at Paint the Town make the perfect activities to do on a date or for a girls night out!
