Kassitti Balomenos, the event’s organizer, said she enjoyed painting and meeting new people.

“We are going to paint a picture, drink some mocktails and have some fun,” Balomenos said before the event began.

One student who attended was Morgan Kistler, a sophomore communications major.

“(It’s) just like a stress-free way to relax and have fun and no one judges how good or bad you are at painting,” she said. “That’s what I like most about it because I’m not a good painter. It’s just a fun environment to meet new people.”

Dane La Fleur a sophomore business major, said he was impressed by the event.

“It sounded like a fun, free event and so far it has fulfilled my expectations,” he said while painting.
