If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed these days, you’re not alone. With everything going on, it can be easy to forget that sometimes all we need is a good old-fashioned date night to lift our spirits.
Unfortunately, our options are a little limited these days, and what options are available can begin to feel repetitive. If you’re tired of ordering take-out from the same restaurants or just need a break from another at-home movie night, then we have you covered!
Need a fresh idea for your at-home date night?
Painting to Gogh offers a great date night experience that delivers a painting class, and all the supplies you’ll need, directly to your home! Our easy-to-follow, on-demand tutorials are perfect for all couples, especially those who might be newer to painting.
In addition to being a fun and safe alternative to going out, it’s also great for nights when you can't find a sitter and rainy days when you don't want to leave the house. Regardless of your circumstances, you’ll have a blast with this truly one-of-a-kind date night experience.
Paint at Home kits, for couples
We make it easy to host a painting date night in three simple steps.
1) Choose how you’d like to paint. You can paint together to create a diptych of the same painting. A diptych is two canvases put together to make one large art piece. Or, if you and your partner have different styles, you can create individual masterpieces by painting on separate canvases - no pressure to paint the same thing!
3) Order two Starter kits. Once you’ve selected the painting, buy a Starter Kit for each painter. Our Starter Kits include everything you’ll need to create an amazing work of art, including a high-quality brush set, easel, paint, canvas, and an artist-led tutorial. Our brushes and easel are re-usable, so next time around, you can save some money by ordering two Essentials Kits.
Your supplies will arrive within 2-5 business days, and you'll receive a link with access our artist-led video tutorials. You’ll have on-demand access to step-by-step instructions taught by professional artists. While you and your partner can take as much time as you need, it generally takes between 1 - 2 hours to complete a painting.
Tips for planning your couple's paint night
No need to figure out when your schedule works with a live class - our prerecorded tutorials are ready whenever you are ready to paint.
Our tutorials allow you to pause as you go. There are also short breaks times when you'll need to let the paint dry. Take advantage of these breaks to eat, make some cocktails, take pictures, cut a cake or surprise your date with a gift. When you are ready to start again, simply press play.
Want to paint outside? All you need is location with wifi or cellular connection and you can paint in the open air. Perfect for balconies, rooftops or backyards.

“Painting to Gogh is the easiest way to pull off a painting date night at home! We were able to create our own masterpiece because the instructor is really great! And did I mention no babysitting cost?Read the full review at: Friday We're in Love
"For previous paint nights, when we got supplies ourselves...it was a long night of prep, set up, figuring out what to use and we ended up with much more than we really needed. Painting to Gogh makes the entire experience super convenient. We had so much fun and would do this 100 more times. The paintings typically take 1-2 hours and the best part is that the supplies are high quality, so they can be used over and over again.”
