- $22 for a two-hour BYOB painting class (a $35 value)
Led by local artists, the two-hour class equips students with the canvases, paints, and supplies needed to paint sunflowers, sailboats, or other themes in a rotating selection of projects. Students bring along snacks and alcoholic or nonalcoholic beverages of their choice, and the studio provides cups, corkscrews, and ice. If they don't finish or are unsatisfied with their paintings, they can return to continue working at an announced date. The studio recommends artists arrive at least 15 minutes early. See a complete schedule with class projects and times here.
Corks and Canvases
At Corks and Canvases, local artists demonstrate how to paint vivid scenes while students sip their favorite wines. After passing out canvases and supplies, teachers guides attendees aged 15 and older stroke-by-stroke through the process of creating projects such as a Van Gogh–inspired starry night over Pittsburgh or a sailboat as it floats at sunset. At BYOB classes, they invite guests to uncork a vintage and nibble snacks brought from home. The studio also hosts bachelor or bachelorette parties, fundraising events, and family nights that let kids and their smartest stuffed animals paint alongside adults.
