Why More Guys Should Have Paint and Sip NightsWhile there are always guys who turn up in our studios, they come in smaller numbers than the ladies. Pinot’s Palette started with the simple mission of being the ultimate girls’ night out experience, and with franchises set up nationally and internationally, we think we’ve accomplished that pretty well! But we never, ever want to leave the guys out!
Whatever the reason is for guys being shyer about the Pinot’s experience, we’re sure that paint and sip is for everyone and offers some serious benefits to men in particular.
When someone takes a painting class, it shows that they have a willingness to learn, an adventurous side that wants to try new things, patience and sensitivity. And if that’s not attractive, we don’t know what is.
It’s very good for you.
The benefits of painting go far beyond what comes out on the canvas. Like most creative pursuits, painting seriously reduces stress and improves neural pathways in your brain. These benefits can actually help your brain figure out solutions to problems at work or home, and boost overall productivity and positivity in your life. (Really. It’s science.)
It’s a great way to connect with people.
Something about a palette of colors, an encouraging instructor and a glass of wine brings out conversations and connections that just don’t happen outside the studio. Taking a date to a paint and sip night is an awesome way to get to know another side of them. What’s even better is reminiscing and reconnecting with your siblings in a brand new way. And making a date with Mom or Dad is an endearing gesture that, again, breeds conversations that don’t happen at home in the living room.
It’s great for breaking stereotypes.
Wine-infused painting lessons aren’t a common male hangout, but there’s no reason they can’t be. Paint and sip classes offer the same incredible benefits whether you’re male or female, college student or grandparent, accomplished artist or total newbie. It’s rewarding for us to see more variety in our classes, and we believe creativity benefits from diversity.
Whether you’re male, female or alien, we invite you to reap the rewards of paint and sip this week!
