Paint Nite Cape Girardeau is mixing art with a night out. Paint Nite events invite everyone to attend an art night at a local restaurant to enjoy drinks and create a masterpiece.

 

The iconic bright-green aprons can be seen filling up local restaurants and bars as the rapidly-growing Paint Nite events change how residents spend their evening out on the town. These events bring out everyone’s artistic spirit with simple step-by-step instructions on creating a specific painting. While enjoying drinks and food a master artist guides patrons to help create a 16 by 20-inch acrylic painting. All supplies are provided, and at the end of the night all artists get to take their creation home.

Natalie Metzger is one of the organizers and master artists for Paint Nite, “There really isn’t anything quite like it in Cape that brings together your creative ambitions and your inner party girl. Most guests work a nine to five job and have kids or other obligations so their painting can embody a little of their wild side.”

Natalie says you don’t have to be an amazing artist to attend. It’s all about having fun and stretching your creative muscles,We know most of our guests haven’t ever painted before, but that’s okay, it’s not all about taking home a painting of a cute owl or a tree. Paint Nite is about the memory you take home with that painting.”  Painting themes usually depict simple landscapes.  While everyone paints the same picture, emphasis is placed on individual style and perspectives as a way to see how each person translates their creativity.

First-time Paint Nite attendee Blake Pennington said the experience was really fun, “It taught some of the fundamentals of painting with a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. The instructor taught us different ways to use the brushes to create the scenery, and ways to enhance our own paintings. It's easy to understand and we actually just bought tickets for another night. They play music and encourage you to interact with the other artists.”

Paint Nite fits in well with Cape’s ever-growing art community, and combines with small business of the downtown area. Bella Italia is a frequent host for Paint Nite events. “We love giving people the opportunity to explore their creativity,” Natalie says, “and being able to do that surrounded by friends, laughter, and great music. It's really a perfect mixture for people to do something new and daring but have the comfort that they aren’t in it alone.”
