What is a CANVAS! class like?

As the premier paint and sip studios in Washington, you will relax in a social, group setting, and an artist will guide you through replicating the sessions featured painting step by step. Whether you are an aspiring Van Gogh or just looking to explore your creative side, you are sure to go home with a painting that is uniquely yours. By the end of the session you will be amazed at the artwork you have created! The classes start promptly at 7:00p.m., but we suggest arriving at 6:30p.m. to get checked in and select your seat - we assign tables, but you select your seat.
