Paint Nites are held at 7 p.m. on Mondays in the Community Room at the Oswego Commons.

At the gatherings, Lakeside Artisans members conduct classes in which each participant creates an original masterpiece.

Lakeside Artisans provides the participants with all the materials needed to create the painting, as well as detailed instructions on the steps and techniques involved.

While Lakeside Artisans provides the canvas and paints, participants are asked to provide their own inspirational spirits, which are believed to help the creative process considerably.

The first Paint Nite of 2016, on January 11, will feature Cindy Schmidt’s Lone Pine in a Snowy Forest.

Past Paint Nites have featured adaptations of well-known painting such as Monet’s Water Lilies and Van Gogh’s Starry, Starry Night, as well as original creations such as Michelle Southgate’s Oswego Lighthouse.

Lakeside Artisans is now offering gift certificates for its popular Paint Nites. Recipients of the gift certificates can use them to make reservations at any of the Paint Nites.

Gifts certificates are $45, which covers the full cost of the registration fee. Gift Certificates can be purchased at the Lakeside Artisans that shop in the Oswego Commons at 191 W. First St.
