The National Art Honor Society (NAHS) hosted a Paint Night fundraiser, inviting students from all grades along with faculty to paint a field of flowers while enjoying drinks and snacks on the side, on March 2 in C-201.

Tickets were 15 dollars covering paint materials, canvases and snacks. The money was used to raise funds for induction projects or other chapter activities.

“We have people come in, they get paint, canvases, anything they need, and then they get to paint a picture,” junior and NAHS member Dana Gaudette said. “They don’t really have to have the skill, but can still paint something really nice”.

Painting is not restricted to what is being led, and painters are allowed to add their own flare.  

 “People can kind of just do anything they want,” junior and NAHS member Carol Raps, who led the painting, said. “We give them a lot of freedom to change their painting up.” 

Paint Night is hosted a few times throughout the year, and many people have come multiple times. 

 “I came [to Paint Night a second time] because I thought it was very fun last time, and I liked the painting I made,” sophomore Fairha Khan said. “You don’t have to be good at art; you can just show up and have a relaxing time with friends.”
