Come alone, bring a friend, or fill an entire class with your friends. Just like a signature everyone has their own style and we know you will find yours as we encourage you to let the paint flow! Also, it's okay if you've never painted anything but your walls—there's no experience necessary and fun is our only requirement. Each of our guests at Cork & Canvas receives a canvas, paints, brushes, and an easel. A wide selection of wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages are available for purchase during your class as well.
