The artistic instructors at The Corky Canvas equip painters of all skill levels to recreate iconic works of art over social wine sips. Equipped with necessary brushes, easels, and aprons, painters of all levels select from a rotating schedule of replication tutorials for iconic works such as Starry Night, Purple Poppies, and Van Gogh’s wine-fueled face-painting period. Students with no artistic experience still have fun depicting their masterpieces in a 16”x20” canvas of whatever color schemes they choose. Groupon customers can select from any available classes, including Mimosa Mornings and post-mimosa naps on the floor.
The Corky Canvas
Angie Lewis never considered herself an artist. When she first began dabbling with paint, she found herself overwhelmed by choices. After fretting over what paintbrush to use and what brand of paint to buy, she eventually gave up and stuffed her art supplies—and her creativity—in the back of her closet.
They remained there until one day, while visiting friends in Denver, Angie attended an "entertainment-style" art class. It had music, wine, and a casual "it's OK to mess up" vibe, and Angie knew she just had to bring the concept home with her to Nebraska. And thus The Corky Canvas was born, a place where friends and artists of all skill levels gather with paintbrushes in one hand, and wine glasses in the other. At two Corky Canvas locations, Angie and her team of instructors lead groups through nightly featured painting, private parties, team buildings, and more. Painters are always welcome to change the colors of their class's suggested design, or to even paint something new entirely, following the whims of their creative spirits.
