Q&A with Charlotte Lindsey Gaskins, Owner

Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.

When a customer who had never painted before contacted me afterwards to say hey and her son saw a rainbow and discussed how they would paint it.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?

I've always been inspired by art and always loved good wine alongside [it].

What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?

New concept; anyone can do it?everyone has fun, even if they come in a little apprehensive.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

You can also "freestyle" at our Paint Bar. We have options you can paint on your own or ones that come with instructions. The Paint Bar is open without reservations, walk-ins welcome to the Paint Bar. Great location to host parties as well.

Wooden shelves teem with more than 750 designs of bisque pottery pieces that include small decorative bowls, plates, banks, and mugs shaped like owls. On nearby tabletop risers, glazes in nearly 100 colors sit next to stacks of brushes, sponges, stencils, and stamps. Art Smart Academy staffers help children of all ages, including those with fully formed mustaches, exercise their creativity. They guide visitors through open pottery-painting sessions, themed painting parties, and adults-only painting workshops between the studio's bright lavender and sunburst yellow walls—often educating visitors in new artistic styles and terminology. The creative staffers also travel outside the studio as part of a mobile art-education program, and bring ample art supplies to outdoor painting parties.

It can take an artist years to apply the right brushstrokes to a canvas, but at Corks and Canvas, it only takes one night. During each three-hour painting session, a professional artist walks classes through every step of duplicating a piece of acrylic art. Made up of participants aged 16 and older, the group classes convene at a public venue such as a restaurant. Students can buy food and drinks to snack on throughout the night or smear onto their canvas if they’re tired of painting. For scheduled sessions and private events for adults or kids, Corks and Canvas supplies canvases, paint, brushes, easels, and aprons.

Studio Hollywood can quickly become a second residence for independent filmmakers. Not only can they study acting, screenwriting, directing, marketing, and distribution, but they can also enlist the studio to help them produce projects ranging from 30-second commercials to feature-length pieces. After projects are complete, Studio Hollywood can even screen them in its 105-person theatre, which boasts a 12-foot HD screen and surround sound.
