paint-nightThanks to the new phenomenon of “Paint Night” at assorted leisure venues around Buenos Aires, many in the city are heading out to have a few drinks with their friends and then paint their own work of art after leaving work.

 

“Paint Night” was conceived as a way to “demythologize” art and find a way to help people be creative on their own, said its creator Tomas Stigwardt.

 

“There’s a lot of technique and following concrete steps. You can be better or worse in the kitchen but if you follow the recipe you’re going to achieve a satisfactory result,” this unique art professor told EFE.

 

In Paint Night anyone can create their own work of art in just two hours without having to go to an art class or have any previous knowledge of how to paint.

 

Paint Night started in Boston, Massachusetts, and works like a bank of artwork where artists all over the world upload their artistic endeavours, which teachers then select and reproduce in bars and nightspots for a group of previously-registered participants.

 

The participants get a “template” – or outline – of a work of art and then people can paint it as they see fit, much like colouring in a colouring book.

 

Paint Night is a rotating phenomenon, making the rounds of different bars and establishments around the Argentine capital.

 

The initiative has already captivated more than three million people around the world.
