Starry, Starry Night Event: Unleash Your Inner Van Gogh and Come Paint Under the Stars!
There’s a common misconception that painting is an innate quality that a person is simply born with and whilst it is true that certain people may possess an artistic flair, that doesn’t mean that beginners should stay clear of a paintbrush for their entire life for fear of failing. Paint Away Events are aimed at everyone and anyone which means that you don’t have to be a budding artist to take part. Instead, we encourage you to find your inner painter through our instructor-led paint parties!
Vincent Van Gogh is an iconic painter known for famous works such as The Potato Eaters, Wheatfields With Crows, Bedroom in Aries, Sunflowers, and of course, The Starry Night. Although he is regarded with great admiration today, Van Gogh received little to no recognition for his work during his lifetime and managed to sell just one painting before his untimely death at 37 years old. His style of painting directly contradicted the expectations of academic art in the 19th century which could perhaps explain these hardships, however from a modern perspective there is no doubt that Van Gogh and his work will live on for many more years.
Paint Away Events are holding a Van Gogh event - Starry, Starry Night - based on one of the Dutch painters’ most iconic canvases! Here are all the details:
When: June 28th 2021
Time: 7pm - 9pm
Where: The Spoon Inn, 364 Barlow Moor Rd, Chorlton-Cum-Hardy, Manchester, M21 8AZ
Remember, there is no need for experience as our Starry, Starry Night event will be led by a friendly host who will explain the process using small and easy steps that you can follow at your own pace in order to create your very own Van Gogh inspired masterpiece! Although it may look complicated, painting as a group in an atmospheric and relaxing environment can be quite a therapeutic practice and may aid mindfulness.
Paint Away Event encourage all beginners to try their hand at painting which is why we provide the following equipment at all of our events:
● 16x12 canvas to take home
In line with COVID-19 social distancing measures, tickets to our Starry, Starry Night event can only be sold in pairs of the same household, and facemasks will be mandatory when a 2m social distance cannot be met. The host will also wear a face shield throughout in order to keep all of our painters safe during their paint party!
