Painting is extremely relaxing. It can be very therapeutic and after a long day, you all can benefit from the rewards of art by having it as a perfect break for you and your squad! A friendly date is a perfect activity to spend time together as well as freshen up from all the hectic schedules. 

Catch Up With Friends

A friendly painting date event is a perfect spot to catch up with friends you haven’t seen in a while by pre-planning it and inviting everyone on a small get together. You can bring your long distance friends with you, and have a blast!


Painting is a soothing experience for your brain and soul. It provides pleasure and happiness. It also allows the individual to express their feelings and emotions without words, just like in ” Mysore painting” which is a great way to understand each other in a better way and help each other out.

Strengthen The Bond

A picnic spot, brushes in hands, canvas in front, cakes to eat and cheers to the wine with your best buddies! What else does someone need to have a nice chilling session? It gives you time and let’s you share the feelings deep within. 

Knocking Around Together

Painting requires time. Going on a painting date with your friends allows you to spend quality time with them because if you schedule a painting date, you can only do that when you can have 2-3 hours together at the very least.

Improving Skills

Going out with your friends on a painting date helps you improve your painting skills as you both can review each other’s work honestly and will provide suggestions to lift each other.

Pocket – Friendly

A painting date is a budget-friendly activity. You just need some snacks, a canvas, your painting tools and your buddies and you are good to go! You can try “Aipan art” as it uses only geru and white colour from rice flour.
