Paint parties have become common as a creative and enjoyable way to spend an evening with friends. For the uninitiated, a “paint party” is an event where people gather—with a libation in hand—to create an original painting under the step-by-step direction of a local artist. For the past year this popular trend has been popularized in Lagos by Paint the Night Africa (PTNA), which offers Paint Parties at local restaurants two to three times a month. Tapping into Lagos’ creative and vibrant energy, PTNA provides individuals with a unique opportunity to socialize while painting their own personal masterpieces. Guests can expect to experience great food at one of PTNA’s partner restaurants, such as Ginger Tapas & Grill, in addition to cocktails, music, and the fun of creating art with family or friends. The events are great for girls’ nights out, birthday celebrations, bridal showers and even date nights. PTNA encourages everyone to sip and dip: “It’s always a good night when our guests inadvertently dip their paint brushes in their wine glasses.”
