Leave your Stress at the Door, Relax and Have Fun!
Benefits of Paint Parties:
  • Painting uses both the left and right side of the brain. It uses your creative and emotional side, as well as you rational and logical thinking.
  • Even in a group setting, painting is a solo activity that allows you to focus on the task at hand, leaving your worries behind, as the stress begins to melt away.
  • Paint Parties boost your self-confidence.  In a non-competitive atmosphere everyone is treated equally regardless of their abilities.
  • Learning how to handle a paintbrush helps to strengthen fine motor skills and hand eye coordination.
  • Painting sparks creativity and makes good use of the imagination. Each painting becomes as unique as it’s painter.
  • At Paint Parties whether, Coffee n Canvas or Sip n Paint, there is always opportunity to laugh, socialize, and make some fun-filled memories.
