One of my favorite times of the month is when the latest Paint with Plaid Night is held. Last June, when I visited Plaid in Atlanta with the other Plaid Creators, we got to be LIVE in person for the very first Paint with Plaid night where they teach you the tips for creating your own unique masterpieces easily each month! All you have to do is save the date on their Facebook page, get the supplies they suggest (they sell them on their website for a discount or you can buy them in stores), then sit and literally paint live with Plaid OR save the video for later and come back and do it on your own time!
For this post you can use THIS supply list to see everything that they recommend to create this Holiday Magic painting. They show us the inspiration for the painting and then we turn around and recreate our version of the painting in the comfort of our own homes.
For me, we watched Paint with Plaid live, then we got our supplies, came back and painted along during the weekend.
My eight year old son LOVES to paint and be artistic, so I got two canvases and we spent the hour painting together…Plaid walks you through every step of the way, giving you painting tips, suggestions, and the best part? You can ASK them questions live if you are stuck or need tips on how to make your paintings better! So I encourage you to watch live regardless of whether you can paint with them right then and there or not.
My son really enjoyed learning how to paint and he actually did REALLY well following their instructions and doing his own painting!!
The whole Live Video for this was around an hour long and I hope to do next month’s with my kids and family friends next time! The kids LOVE participating and the adults enjoy it just as much!
Can you guess which one is mine and which is my son’s? I’m NOT a painter, but I still think they turned out cute!
If you enjoy Paint with Plaid, you can see all the Paint with Plaid videos online HERE.
