What is a class at Canvas and Cabernet like?

In a upbeat, social setting a studio artist will guide you through the night’s featured painting step by step. Literally helping you choose color combinations and brush sizes and giving detailed instructions allowing you to work your way through our specially designed paintings.

Classes are about 3 hours long with frequent breaks.

Do I need to sign up in advance?
