Couple Painting Diptych on Two Separate Canvases

Looking to paint with a partner collaboratively? A diptych painting is a fun way to paint with someone else!

A diptych painting is when two separate canvases are combined to make one unified piece of art. This technique involves painting one half of the artwork on one canvas and the other half on the second canvas. At the end, you combine both canvases to make amazing piece of art. 

Our diptych paintings are popular for date nights, painting with friends or family - all you have to do is order two of the same kits from our diptych collection.

Order a Date Night Studio Kit and you'll get two sets of supplies (brushes, canvases, easels, disposable apron and palette) along with a set of paints to paint on two separate canvases. You'll combine your paintings at the end to make one painting.

If painting separately for a virtual or long distance date night, order one Solo Studio kit shipping to you and one Solo Studio Kit for your partner.   If you already have art supplies or are a repeat customer, you'll just need our Refill Kit which comes with the paints, canvas, and disposable apron and palette.
