Have you heard of That Paint Thing? I’m sure you have. Or some version of it. I’ve been wanting to go for forever. But I was a little hesitant since I have ZERO artistic ability. I mean none. I’m pretty good at stick figures, but that’s about the extent of my skills. But I finally decided to bite the bullet and give That Paint Thing a try. Even if I did a horrible job, at least I would have a night out with some of my favorite people, right?
I LOVED it! The instructor is fun, upbeat, very informative, and makes things feel do-able. She takes you through each step of the process, one by one, to create your masterpiece.
That Paint Thing is your LADIES night, DATE night, or FUN night destination. We have teamed up with Leatherby’s Family Creamery, Waffle Love and Brick Oven to offer an atmosphere of creativity and fun. This means we are combining painting, music, and prizes with amazing Leatherby’s Ice Cream, delicious Waffle Love creations or your choice of a tasty menu item at Brick Oven. Menu choice at Leatherby’s or Waffle Love catering included with your reservation.
When you get there, you will check in and find a seat. At your seat it will look something like this:
A blank canvas with the brushes and paints you will need. Depending on your location, a server will come get your food order and you will wait for everyone to show up. Once they do, the fun begins!
You will be guided through the steps to complete your masterpiece. You can see the end result as well as one that the instructor is painting as you are so you can see more clearly what to do. There are short breaks in between some of the steps so you can grab bites of your food or use that time to catch up on your painting (That’s what I used almost all of the breaks for.)
The only thing I would change is getting food. In the future, I would just go to the venues that don’t have food during the event. There just wasn’t enough time to really dig in while painting. So my food was just in my way and my ice cream ended up as a big, sad, puddle.
I love how every painting turns out differently. We all did things that were a little off from the others. Some had birds, some had more flowers, or more red, some had bigger mountains, some a brighter sun. It was great! I will absolutely go again. And every single person that went with me said the same thing. It was absolutely worth the price and time!
Plus, they are offering kids Summer camps right now! So fun!
