Create Your Canvas Painting Studio opens creative floodgates with painting classes aimed to get brushstrokes flowing with a collection of professional artworks. After choosing 1 of more than 100 paintings to replicate and signing up for any two-hour session, artists show up at the studio to find a copy of their painting and a canvas with the picture’s outline already penciled in. An on-hand artist moseys from canvas to canvas, offering aid to stumped students and coos of supportive admiration to self-conscious doves. Patrons can tote along their own drinks and snacks, loosening up brush hands with a glass of wine and feeding creativity with puréed Picasso prints. Children’s classes nourish young’uns’ artistry with simpler paintings, smaller canvases, and kid-friendly instructors.
Create Your Canvas
At Create Your Canvas, students channel their inner Chagall or Rococo as they turn a snow-white canvas into a personalized print. Selecting from a collection of 100 painting, students choose to re-create images from nature, dance, or child-friendly cartoons then fill in the color on a pre-sketched canvas. Guests sip on samples of their own wine or mixed drinks, and compare pointers on how much is appropriate to tip your muse, a pencil sharpener.
