Imagination Station Studios will be hosting its annual Date Night event every first Friday of the month.
Imagination Station Studios owner, Gladys Attin, said, “The event starts at 7:00 p.m. and ends around 9:00-9:30 p.m. The cost of the Date Night event is $39.99, and that is per couple. We serve sweet tea, coffee, and we put out desserts for the event. Couples can purchase their tickets on the day of the event when they come to Imagination Station Studios.”
According to the New in Lynchburg website, participants can “Enjoy some quality time with that special someone while exploring your creativity and getting to know each other again through our fun game. Enjoy some light refreshments and sweet tea or coffee, while you create two canvases that form one picture.”
Attin said, “We do acrylic painting and what we do is the couple will paint two canvases that once you put them together, they come out to one canvas. Every couple takes one large canvas home. Each of the couples are painting half of one. It helps couples come together because they get to spend some quality time together and as they are painting, they are conversing. Sometimes, we do a game in between where they get to know each other and ask each other questions. It is a fun time for them to be spending quality time together.”
In addition Attin said, “We set up the desserts and beverages and get to enjoy these as they are painting. We go step-by-step, so no painting experience is needed. We guide the couples from the beginning to the end. As they are painting, they get to ask each other questions. We pass out a game to where they can interact with each other as well. The couples are also trying to get their canvases to match up because they have to align their canvases to make one big picture. So, they are getting to know each other and work together to make one big canvas.”
Imagination Station Studios also hosts fundraisers. Attin mentioned, “We do host a lot of fundraisers as well. So, if anyone has any events or anything that they need to fundraise for, we do help out with that. We accommodate for field trips. With the field trips, we integrate a little bit of the history of the particular artist that they are studying. We will do the painting, similar to what the artists are. Then we put together a PowerPoint and share some facts about the artist. We had Liberty High School’s Spanish and Art class host a field trip and they had been studying Frieda. We did a Spanish/English presentation and we got to paint the Frieda on the canvas or a ceramic piece, and they had a lot of fun with it.”
Participants can reserve their tickets through the Facebook messenger at Imagination Station Studio or over the phone at 434-818-1040. The cost for the date night is only $35.99 if you mentioned you saw the add in New in Lynchburg. You can pay when you arrive at the event.
