It’s all in the name when it comes to this Valentine’s Day date idea. Together, you’ll paint while sipping along to your preferred drink — wine, cocktail, mocktail, juice or water; it’s your choice.
Paints are easy (and cheap!) to get from your local department store or online, as are canvases. For what may be an illuminating experience, make a challenge to paint one another — just don’t be offended if your face looks more Picasso than Da Vinci.
Are you a couple that’s a bit more competitive? Set up a still life between the two of you, or even get a paint-by-numbers set. Have friends, family or your Instagram following judge which one is superior (feel free to tag @sheridanaustralia and we can help pick, too!).
If you’re worried about your floor getting paint on it, we recommend putting down some old cardboard or newspapers you have lying around to protect it. An old sheet will do wonders for catching any rogue drips — and afterwards, you can donate it to our Recycling Program (just pop them in the wash first!).
For a Valentine’s Day gift to go along with this date idea — other than the resulting works of art, of course — we recommend something comfy to sit on. For something a little more functional, but that your partner will thank you for years to come, check out our range of pillows. Looking for something that leans towards fun, but is still functional? Check out our range of cushions, some of which are like works of art themselves.
