Attending a painting party with your friends, co-workers, or family is a fun way to spend an afternoon or evening. When you leave, you’ll have a beautiful piece of finished artwork to take home. If you’re wondering what to do with this finished canvas, here are some ideas to consider.
Decorate Your Home
One of the best ways to use your finished paint party art piece is to decorate your home with it. You can hang it on the wall of a bathroom to bring in an unexpected pop of color, or in a guest bedroom for visitors to enjoy. When you look at the painting, you’ll remember the fun time that you had with some of your favorite people. If you frequently attend paint parties, you may run out of wall space. If that’s the case, consider some of the other suggestions on this list, and hang only your most loved pieces.
Give as Gifts
People love to receive thoughtful and unique gifts. A painting that you’ve created is both of these things. If possible, try to gift art canvases to people who would love them. For instance, if your friends love cats, there’s a good chance they’d enjoy the cat painting you made during your paint party. Obviously, you won’t want to gift your art piece to someone else who went to the party, though it might be a lot of fun to trade paintings at the end of the night.
Hang in Your Office
If you work in an office or a cubicle, you can hang your artwork in your space to make your work days more enjoyable. It’s a good idea to check with your boss to make sure it’s okay. Try to pick out a finished piece that you think your co-workers would enjoy, if you’ve painted more than one.
Create a Collection
Many people go to one painting party only to fall in love with the process of creating their own versions of beautiful art pieces. As a result, they end up attending many painting parties and finishing many pieces of art. You can try to create a collection with the art pieces you make at painting parties. If a theme emerges, such as paintings of animals, you can group them together to create a collection. If you’re feeling confident, you can add pieces you paint at home to your collection.
Some people end up with so many art pieces that they’ve created at painting parties that they’re not sure what to do with them. You can always donate your art pieces so someone else can enjoy them. You can donate them to a nonprofit thrift store or see what other facilities, such as nursing homes, would be interested in them.
