Jaxty's Place

My place to ramble about my family, my crafts, my travels and life.

Girl’s Night Out

on October 19, 2015

On my previous blog, I shared how I was a contractor for a company as a secret diner/shopper. I have enjoyed over $1,000 worth of free food over the past year at many places that I would not typically dine since Carl and I are too frugal to spend $100 on a single meal. I was excited a few weeks ago to see an assignment pop up for a local painting class. If you are not familiar with these new guided painting places, they say something like this:

Invite your friends, sip your favorite beverage and enjoy step-by-step instruction with our experienced and enthusiastic local artists. You’ll leave with a one-of-a-kind creation and a new found talent you’ll want to explore.

The assignment was for me and a friend to attend a $35/each class for free and then write a detailed review. So I invited my neighbor, Susan to attend with me.

The instructor stands on the stage with a sample of the finished product on one side and a blank canvas on the other. She guides the participants step-by-step in creating their own identical masterpiece. You are allowed to bring your own snacks and beverages (including alcoholic). At the end of the evening, you have a painting worthy of framing!

It was a really fun assignment and something that I’ve always wanted to do since seeing many friends post about such places on Facebook.

This was definitely one of my favorite “secret assignments” to date. I am glad that Susan and I had the opportunity to hang out and get creative. Good times!
