Creative Date Ideas: Take an Art Class Together
An art class is a great bonding activity for couples; it's fun and messy, and at the end of the class, you get to swap works of art! Which means you'll finally get that misshapen mug you've always wanted: lopsided, heavy and covered in your husband's drawings. Swoon!
So, the next time you need a few creative date ideas, grab some smocks, dig your old paint brushes out of the craft drawer (assuming your pet hasn't chewed the bristles off) and get artsy!
- First, decide what kind of art class you'd like to take together. Photography? Sculpture? Figure drawing (which could either ahem, inspire you, or totally kill the mood!)? Then, browse the internet or your local newspaper for art classes in your area. Museums and community organizations often have art classes for every skill level at super affordable prices.
- Then, get to class! Sure, your rendering of a horse may look more like a car at first, but you'll catch on! Taking an art class together is a learning experience so, dive right in, have fun and get some paint in your hair—it'll come out eventually.
- At the end of the class, exchange pieces with your husband. It's a sweet ending to a creative date. (And is it just us, or is the sensitive, artist-type guy beyond sexy?)
Taking an art class together will give you the alone time you've been missing during diaper duty and soccer games. And, hey, you just might learn something new about your husband—who knew he could sculpt such a lifelike gorilla out of clay?
