What are class prices?
Most adult classes are $31 and we paint on a 16 x 20 canvas. We will occasionally offer paintings on larger or smaller canvases which will alter the price. Prices will be listed individually for each class. Pint-size Painter classes are typically $25, unless otherwise noted, and we will paint on an 11 x 14 canvas.
What ages can paint?
Pint-size Painter classes are for ages 7 & up. Any kiddo under the age of 7 is welcome with a parent or helper. We recommend ages 13 & up for the adult classes (based on level of difficulty). Please note: in the adult classes, responsible brown bagging is allowed, so class members may be consuming alcohol. Of course, you must be 21 to bring/consume alcohol at Canvas.
What do I bring?
Everything you need is already here! We supply aprons, paint brushes, paint, easels. Acrylic paints are difficult to get out clothing, so come prepared, just in case. You are welcome to bring your favorite bottle of wine or beverage, and even food if you would like. We will have wine openers available if you need one. Please, no liquor.
What if I can’t paint or draw a stickman?
Then this EXPERIENCE is for YOU! Let us prove that you are MUCH more artistic than you think! The classes are instructed step by step, we make the painting process super easy.
Disclaimer: we do not currently offer any paintings with stick figures.

“I don’t have an artistic bone in my body, however, the classes at Canvas Paint and Mingle manage to counteract all that and after each class, I walk out with a rockin’ piece of artwork that is hang-worthy. Hats off to Anna Blair and all the talented instructors for making it SO EASY!” – Karen Young
