The paint-wielding professors at The Tipsy Canvas instruct budding Rembrandts and veteran Da Vincis in the joyous practice of applying acrylic pigment. Brush bearers ages 5 to 12 can attempt linear perspective with a two-hour lesson in which they paint guitars, cupcakes, and other kid-friendly subjects. Flocks of friends can migrate to an adult class, bottle of wine and snacks in tow, for a three-hour tutorial on still-life subjects, such as delicate cherry blossoms, breezy lighthouses, or an esoteric revisit of a hand-traced turkey.
The Tipsy Canvas garnishes acrylic paints and a canvas for each student's impending masterpiece, which can be taken home and framed at the end of the class. After discovering an inspirational class on the calendar, reserve a space and come dressed to paint in an old T-shirt or wedding dress.
The Tipsy Canvas
The Tipsy Canvas first sprang into being in 2009. The founders wanted to create a new way for people to engage with art, even if they lacked experience. They found that step-by-step instruction from an artist and a glass of wine to loosen up gave people that opportunity. They now have three Texas studios where other artists follow their teaching example and help students recreate original works of art.
