Free Virtual Paint Night

March 15, 2022

The idea of creating art can sometimes feel stressful for folks. We may not consider ourselves artists, or we might be worried about the end product and if it will look nice. Painting and art can be so much more than the final product. Art can be a ritual that represents us staying in touch with our needs, allowing us to take a break from our everyday stress to focus on the colours, feelings, and textures of the painting process. Above are some featured paintings from last months paint night from both students and staff!

Join the RRC Polytech Students’ Association (RRCSA) and Healthy Minds Healthy College (HMHC) for the last paint night of the academic year!

What is Paint Night?

Paint Night has become very popular in the last couple of years, but if you’ve never been to paint night before, you may find yourself wondering what it is! At its core, paint night is a creative way to hang out with your friends and create a masterpiece!

You Learn to Paint

At paint night, you learn to paint. Whether you’re a complete beginner or a pro painter, there will be an instructor to guide you the whole time! Everyone in the class is working toward creating their own version of the same painting. The teacher will lead you through your painting step-by-step. Our paint nights last two hours.

It’s Therapeutic

Painting is good for you! Paint night is great for people who love to try new things, meet new people, and explore new sides to themselves.
