Are you looking for some new date night ideas? If so, a couples paint night is a great way to spend quality time together.
Paint and sip date nights are loads of fun, and a lot less expensive than dinner and a movie. In fact, a paint date night is a lot more fun than most traditional date night activities.
You can choose to go to a studio for a couples paint and sip date night. Or, you can use this activity as one of your home date night ideas.
Let’s take a look at how much fun a paint and sip date night can be!
What is Paint and Sip?
First of all, let’s talk about what paint and sip actually is. At these events, people come together to learn how to create their own canvas painting.
There is often wine involved for these events, making this the perfect date night for many couples. The paint and sip concept creates a fun element for any date night.
You get to bring your paintings home after the date night. This will give you something to remember the evening by long after it is over.
A sip date night can involve wine or other alcohol. There are also alcohol-free events if you prefer.
Step By Step Instruction
You will be taught, step by step, by a professional artist, how to paint with other guests using acrylic paints. You will learn how to use acrylic paints, how to mix things, and how to complete your very first masterpiece.
At the end of the evening, you will be bringing home two canvases with art you both created.
Art Supplies Are Provided
All of the art supplies needed will be provided for your couples painting date night. This includes a canvas for each of you, paint and paint brushes. You will be working in an art studio, unless the party is at someone’s house or another location.
If the artist is coming to your place for a date night at home, they will bring all of the art supplies so each of you can create an acrylic painting.
Enjoy a Drink of Wine
Many of these events are paint and sip parties. Depending on the studio, wine may be provided, or you may need to bring your own wine for the sip date night.
If this is a home date idea, you can have as much wine as you want!

Great Gift Ideas

At a Party
Maybe you have a friend who is hosting a couples paint night. You and your partner can enjoy your paint date and have fun with friends at the same time.
Don’t forget to bring some snacks to your paint party and share with others. This will be more fun.
How to Book a Paint and Sip Date Night
If you and your husband or boyfriend have decided on a paint date, the first thing you need to do is find an artist who teaches this type of event. Decide on an artist, then call on the phone to see when they are available.
Find out if the class is held in a studio, or if the artist can come to your house for a home date night (another option is to use a video so you can have more privacy). You can even invite another couple and turn the event into a double date night at home.
You may be asked to pay in advance, or at least pay a deposit. Then you can sign up and confirm your class date and time.
If you are tired of the usual dates, it’s time to mix things up and try painting for a perfect date night idea. In fact, as an instructor, I think this is one of the best date nights.
A sip couple’s edition party is loads of fun, and you will be able to enjoy time together while learning something new.
A paint and sip date is a great gift for a husband or a wife. If it is a date night at home, alone, you may even want to try body painting for even more intimacy.
The price you pay will cover two canvases, brushes, paints, and of course, step by step instruction. You may even get a free glass of wine (if wine is included).
The next time you are trying to come up with new date ideas, consider painting a masterpiece together. You won’t regret it!
