Couples and families will have an opportunity to get involved with the Nickel Plate Arts over Valentine’s Day, as the organization is once again hosting its couple nights and family events.

The “Paint the Town Red” exhibit utilizing the color red also will be open through Feb. 24.


“Our key program, the signature Nickel Plate event for the Valentine’s Day holiday is our date night program,” Executive Director Aili McGill said. “We invite local artists to come in and lead activities based for couples. These artists have designed are pretty much guaranteed that anyone can do them, be successful, and make a cool piece of art. Couples always marvel about how much they learn about their partner through making art together. Each year, we make sure we have wide variety of art activities.”

Some of the activities offered at date night this year include a poetry station, ukulele lessons, a cupcake decorating station, creating an essential oil infuser, making ceramic tiles and a puzzle collage. The activities cost $10 per couple, or $50 per couple for all six activities. Date night will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Feb. 14, 15 and 16.

“All the artwork (from ‘Paint the Town Red’) will be for sale and makes a great backdrop for our date night,” McGill said.

Family Valentine’s Day will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 10, and families are able to create arts and crafts together. The crafts all are inspired by famous artists’ work. Crafts range from $5 to $10, or $20 for unlimited crafts.

All activities will take place at Nickel Plate Arts, 107 S. Eighth St., Noblesville.
