The artists at Wine and Canvas awaken their students’ inner Rembrandts and Van Goghs with classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.

Speckled fish swim languidly through turquoise-blue water beneath an orange sky. Nearby, a pair of white cranes stretch their long necks toward the sun, and sea turtles glide past fronds of kelp looking for their lost keys. But this isn't an exotic animal sanctuary—rather, these natural scenes are captured in gleaming stained glass. The charming images are the work of the craftsmen at D & L Art Glass, a studio specializing in stained and leaded panes. They shape artistic pieces to adorn windows or doors, form colorful pendants, and etch eye-catching patterns into metal or stone surfaces. Instead of keeping their crystalline knowledge to themselves, the experts instruct others in the glass arts during classes and multiday workshops.
