Paint Monkey is featured in the article below as a great activity to combat Cabin Fever!

While it might be an extreme example, by February most of us in western Pennsylvania can identify—at least a little bit—with Jack Nicholson’s character in The Shining. Snowed in for the winter, Jack Torrance slowly goes insane. Things unravel from there. February is the stuff of horror films.
Fear not if this scenario hits too close to home. Unlike rural Maine, the Pittsburgh area has an array of appealing ways to combat cabin fever.
With a successful operation in Lawrenceville and a new space at The Waterfront in Homestead, Paint Monkey opened its newest location in McCandless Crossing in December. Open six days a week, the paint studio offers both open studio time for walk-in guests as well as scheduled classes and events.
Paint Monkey is unusual among its peers because they pre-sketch the canvases, explained co-owner Mary Lou Bradley. That convenience ensures that beginning painters have a great experience and leave with a painting they can display. If they prefer, customers can also choose a blank canvas and let loose their creativity.
‘Yinzer Starry Night’ and ‘Paint Your Pet’ classes are among Paint Monkey’s most popular events. For the latter, guests send a photo of their pet in advance and Paint Monkey will sketch each animal for the pet owners to paint. Families can create artwork together with projects like the ‘Seasons Tree’ for a family of three or a sunflower painted across four canvases for a family of four.
Paint Monkey welcomes outside food and drinks, plays music and encourages a fun atmosphere. Whether for a night out with friends, a creative family activity or a date night, Paint Monkey provides a unique opportunity to explore your artistic side. Details are available at www.beapaintmonkey.com.
