Paint, Drink and Be Merry in a Knoxville Restaurant
Paint Nite, a leader in the viral social painting phenomenon, has expanded into Knoxville. Paint Nite is a fun alternative to a typical night out, offering a creative way for people to drink, paint, and socialize with others in the comfort of their favorite local bar or restaurant. While participants mingle with old friends and make new ones, a professional artist provides step-by-step instruction, allowing attendees to turn a blank canvas into a final piece of personalized art in about two hours---and over a couple cocktails.
“This area has many talented artists and an amazing bar scene, the ideal combination for great Paint Nite events,” said co-founder Dan Hermann. “Paint Nite offers a creative way to have a few drinks with friends or meet new people in a laid back atmosphere -- you don’t need to have an ounce of artistic ability, you just need to be open to having fun!”
Founded just over three years ago, Paint Nite is now active in 1,200 cities internationally, hosting over 4,000 events each month, entertaining around 155,000 people with the ultimate social painting experience!
Unlike social painting classes at brick & mortar locations with limited capacity and minimal food and beverage offerings, Paint Nite’s “nomadic” business model means more classes in a variety of bars and restaurants designed to suit every need. Event locations, artist information, and a sample of each featured painting can be found on PaintNite.com. Seats are limited and event tickets, which include a 16” X 20” canvas, paints, brushes, a smock and professional instruction, are sold in advance online. If desired, drinks and food to accompany the painting experience are purchased directly from the hosting bar or restaurant.
“Paint Nite is a win-win-win for the local artists, the participants, and for hosting bars and restaurants like Scruffy City Hall,” added Hermann. “While people are painting and having fun socializing with friends, the bars and restaurants drive traffic in on a traditionally slower night an
