**My husband, Chris, and I received a complimentary paint lesson at The Paint Bar in order to facilitate this post. All opinions expressed here are strictly my own and were not influenced in any way**
I had been telling my husband for ages that I wanted to go to The Paint Bar and since he didn’t seem to be getting the hint, I took matters into my own hands and booked us a lesson at the Newtonville location.
You see, I come from a family of artists, but somehow that artistic gene seemed to have skipped me. Both my mother and sister graduated from the Mass College of Art and here I am barely able to draw a stick figure that even remotely resembles a human being. That is why The Paint Bar intrigued me. At The Paint Bar, the instructor helps everyone in the class create a masterpiece by teaching the class how to recreate one specific painting step by step – and I knew that would be perfect for a “beginner” me.
At The Paint Bar, you can call or make reservations online and because space is limited, reservations are suggested. I made our reservations online and when you book online, you can see which paintings are going to be featured on which night, so can you choose based on that if you’re looking for something specific to paint – which is what I did.
Chris had no idea what we were going to be painting, but as soon as we walked in, they had the painting that the class was going to be working on displayed. It is called “Moonlit Boston”.
