When was the last time you painted? Not color-by-number, or painting alongside your child. Real painting on a canvas. Maybe never, as was the case for me.
My Parent Talk playgroup chose Palettes Natick for our June Mom’s Night Out. Nikki Myers suggested it, and many of us jumped on the chance to be a little creative. Eleven of us got together to enjoy a fun night of painting, cocktails, and old-school girly music. (Think Dirty Dancing tunes)
We got step-by-step instruction on how to create the Mod Flowers painting. Everyone in the class paints the same thing, yet they each came out slightly different. We even spied on what looked like professionals in the class who created hardwood floors in their paintings.

I think the best advertising is the other pictures up on the walls. There were so many that I wanted to come back and paint…lobsters, buoys, boats. See a theme here?
If you are looking for a new place for a girls’ night out, check out Palettes in Natick center. There are also kid friendly painting opportunities. Who wouldn’t want to move the painting mess out of your house?!
