A Chat with Cork & Canvas JC
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are family owned and operated and will go above and beyond to make your experience a great one! We also hold events even if there are only two sign-ups. We strive to create beautiful and fun paintings worthy of hanging up, and we love to convert stick figure illustrators into proud artists.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
We provide everything you need to get your inner muse on: aprons, canvas, paint, brushes, music, and instruction. The only thing you need to bring is your favorite wine, beer, or snack. We even provide the glasses, plates, napkins, silverware, and bottle openers.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have always been creative and had a love for the arts. I also knew I wanted to be in business for myself. I fell in love with this business for its ability to change ordinary people into artists with its “one step at a time” approach. The best part is that people have fun and [discover] a new talent.
What do you love most about your job?
Every time a customer comes in timid and stating that they can barely draw stick figures and then, at the end of the night, they can’t believe that they painted this masterpiece, that’s the best part.
