We’ve all spent plenty of time vegging out on the couch in our Royal Athena apartments these last few months, so once life starts getting back to normal, it’s time to get out and about—and creative! Getting the artistic juices flowing is the perfect way to reignite some energy and rediscover your interests. And with so many artistic outlets near your Royal Athena apartment, there are plenty of spots you can check out to get creative and support local businesses.
One such spot is ARTrageous Brush & Flow in nearby Germantown, just three miles from your Royal Athena apartment. The independently owned art studio has been operating throughout the pandemic, offering DIY at-home paint kits—which are available for delivery—so you can spark some artistic creativity right at home. Once business gets back to normal, book a party at the studio to get the full experience.
The studio provides everything you need for an exciting night out: canvases, paint, snacks and hands-on instruction from a trained artist. The instructor leads the class through all aspects of recreating a piece of art—the colors, the brushstrokes, the techniques—but aspiring artists are encouraged to put their own spin on it. Add a little extra of your favorite color, interpret lighting in a unique way and add some fun details to make the picture all your own.
Painters are invited to bring their own favorite bottle, so you can sip and socialize throughout the event. There are frequent breaks so you can grab refills, snacks and admire your fellow students’ work—and maybe get some inspiration.
Whether you’re looking for a fun date night out with your special someone or a reunion with friends you haven’t seen in a while, ARTrageous is a great option for a post-quarantine outing. Reserve the entire studio if you have a group or hop onto a regular class with a smaller party.
We’ve all been cooped up for months, so once things get back to normal, it’ll be the time to treat yourself to a night out, all while supporting local businesses!
