4 Reasons Guys Should Paint and SipPainting is just for women! Not!! Men always have a blast when they "Paint & Sip" with us, but usually are more shy about coming out. We've put together a list of reasons why you guys should be less hesitant:
1. It's sexy.
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. (However, most women would say John Stamos).
2. 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.) (Science can be cool sometimes.)
3. 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.
4. 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.
