If an evening spent with a paintbrush in one hand and a wine glass in the other sounds lovely, you don’t want to miss our paint night. Paint nights are the perfect opportunity to mingle and have fun with friends and family members while exploring your creative side.
Paint With Cara Duke
This stress-free event is a fan favourite and always gets rave reviews. Our expert Cara Duke of Cara’s Paint Box returns again to guide us on a painting session. An event where everyone is sure to leave with a piece of art that inspires them.
This time Cara will have us painting a gorgeous winter forest scene, complete with birch trees and a deep blue sky. Of course, the details are up to you! Perhaps the woods around the Inn will offer you some inspiration? Though we all work to create the same painting, each one turns out marvellously different.
That’s the secret to a good paint night: everyone can participate no matter what their skill level. Cara has been hosting exciting paint nights for years and ensures it’s never too deeply involved or difficult. Check out her website to see the variety of lovely art her guests have created.
What To Expect at a Paint Night
Everyone from those who have never held a paintbrush before to those who’ve studied fine art, will enjoy this activity and leave with a gift to take home. All the materials including, paint, canvas, and brushes are provided on-site.
The night also includes a glass of wine along with sumptuous hors d’oeuvres. This event is perfect for a friend’s get-together, a girls night out, or mother-daughter team duo. Of course, guys enjoy painting too and are encouraged to come.
Painting Reduces Stress
Our Paint Night in Mississauga is a friendly and accepting atmosphere that’s easy to unwind in. In her own words, Cara says, “No matter what the medium, I try to make the atmosphere fun, light-hearted and engaging.”
Research backs up the benefits you’ll receive from a paint night. After 45 minutes of a painting exercise, an adult’s level of cortisol (our stress hormone) drops measurably. Painting builds positive emotions and thoughts, reduces anxiety, and even changes our self-perception. Therapists are increasingly looking to art as a therapy option for all kinds of ailments, especially for minimizing stress.
Painting is more than a relaxing activity, though. Our paint night event offers you a chance to stretch your creative muscles. If you’re feeling stuck in a rut then creative pursuits can help you break out and see life from a new perspective.
Plus, you’ll take your painting home at the end of the night! Is it a painting you want to display in your home? A gift for a treasured friend? Or just a reminder of all the fun you had at the Glenerin Inn? No matter the reason you’ll have a great take away memento.
