Daly House Museum to bring “Paint Nite”, newest recreational Trend, to Prairie Firehouse
Do you need a night out to relax with friends? Would you like to combine your night out with artistic flair and take home a painting you have created yourself? Then Paint Nite is the event for you.
On May 11 at the Prairie Firehouse on Princess, Paint Nite will be in Brandon. A facilitator will provide canvass, brushes, and paint and will walk you through the creation of your own “take-away” masterpiece. No artistic ability or experience is needed! While you are there, you may order drinks and food from the regular menu.
“It’s a great opportunity for a mother-daughter experience,” explains Shari Dressler, Board member for Daly House Museum and organizer for the event. “Coming right after Mother’s Day, the event makes a great gift” The event is not just for mothers and daughters. It’s an opportunity for anyone, of any age, to socialize with friends over a fun activity, while supporting the Daly house Museum.
“Paint Nite” is an international organization formed to help non-profit organizations with their fundraising efforts. The cost for the event is $45, of which $15 goes directly to Daly house. The fee includes all supplies and the services of a facilitator. The event begins at 7 PM and runs about 2 hours. Registration must be made in advance through Paint Nite’s website, https://www.paintnite.com/events/_1172753. Dressler adds that if people need help navigating the Paint Nite site they can call Eileen at the Museum (204-727-1722) for assistance. “Paint Nite tends to sell out quickly, adds Dressler, “so sign up as soon as possible. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to support your local museum.”
