Artists pre-select one of dozens of paintings to re-create each class, helping attendees fill their own 16”x20” canvas with simple, step-by-step instructions. They keep the class energetic with music, and guests provide their own wine and snacks. See the calendar for available class times.
At Canvas Mixers, an artist unearths the hidden talent of amateurs in three-hour painting classes. After handing out aprons and 16”x20” canvases or directing patrons to the nearest blank wall, the teacher carefully guides the brushstrokes of students with step-by-step instructions, helping them craft one of dozens of acrylic paintings. They encourage adults to bring their own beverages, such as beer or wine, to help banish nervousness and inhibitions and let creativity flow. The staff also leads drink-free classes for kids and parent-child pairs.
Offsite events have taken place in Love Park and at local wineries. Canvas Mixers also engages with community service, having raised funds for Ronald McDonald House in the past.
