Art is one of the most historic forms of human interaction and a popular pastime among many. In fact, studies from Harvard’s Women’s Health Watch show that creating visual art can reduce the effects of stress, promote relaxation, and even improve emotional resilience. Couples can re-discover the power of creativity through painting canvases and promote discussion. So, no matter how good you are at it, painting can allow you to test your partner’s artistic side and see how well you both interact to new experiences. Here’s why taking a painting class makes the perfect first date for art lovers.
Create A Fun, Stress-Free Zone
Remember those awkward moments where you sat in silence on a previous date? In a world focused on social media, people tend to get distracted by their digital conversations rather than their actual date. With a painting class, you won’t have to worry thinking about what to say next. In fact, there is no time for awkwardness. Between the time you spend on listening to the guide and following instructions, painting your canvas, and sipping wine, there will be plenty of time to discuss your artwork, laugh with each other, and enjoy your time spent together.
Set the Tone for Your Relationship
The first date sets the tone for the rest of the relationship. According to the University of Texas, studies reveal that men and women evaluate potential partners through face-to-face context. Humans focus on how that person behaves and makes them feel in person that cannot be felt in cyberspace. Whether it is a good experience or even a disaster, how we create first impressions are vital to meeting someone new.
Show Off Your Creativity
Taking a painting class allows you to express your creativity and artistic side. It allows you to create something together and show off your skills. Not to mention, you will both achieve a sense of accomplishment when the artwork is actually finished. So, whether you or your partner enjoy art, this thoughtful experience will provide the perfect opportunity to learn something new about them and yourself.
Lastly, nothing makes a great “first” date as much as having fun while you try something new. Whether it is your first time or the hundredth time you’ve painted, taking your date to an art class will become a fresh new experience the both of you can remember and enjoy.

Kristine Reiner is the next artist showcasing in Voyage’s gallery at Dawley Farms. Music will be performed by Ben Gertner from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.
Reiner is a graphic designer and a mixed media artist that graduated from USF in 2016. Reiner creates abstract art by painting with roses and feels that it’s a magical thing to have someone see a different image in her work than what she originally imagined.
Reiner’s works are based on her own life experiences, she finds that her emotions are really what guide her subject matter. When creating, Reiner tends to use whatever is available but rarely paint brushes. Instead, most of her works are created using roses. From start to finish Reiner will use the different parts of the rose to achieve a unique movement that you can’t get with a brush.
