As I was planning my Secret Night Out Special (an accidental new thing I invented to switch

up my social life), I decided to step away from something typical and try something different

which drew me to Bubbly & Art. Initially discovered on Instagram and as you do, the moment I saw the page, I clicked the 'Save' button and left it in my ‘Events’ category for the future.

to take your painting home! Frame it and stick it in your chosen room to extend that good

energy.  As well as having a great time with your friends, meeting new people, it’s also a

great date night idea. I definitely would recommend Bubbly & Art to anyone (creative or
