Our Studio Sessions FAQ’s

1. What’s it like at Cork and Canvas?

It’s a fun, creative and unique night out!  Simply bring your favourite bottle of wine or other beverage (excluding Pop-up Sessions) and enjoy our relaxed and fun environment where our talented artists guide you step-by-step how to paint the session’s featured artwork.  Come alone, come with a date, come with friends!  Using acrylic paint on a canvas, you’ll be surprised at the masterpiece you create!  As we say, Walk in a Skeptic, Leave with a Masterpiece!

Friday and Saturday night sessions and Sunday afternoon sessions run for about 3 hours while our Sunday evening to Thursday evening sessions run for about 2 hours.

5. What time should I arrive?

Our evening sessions start at 7pm and our Sunday afternoon sessions start at 2pm. Our doors open 15 minutes before each session. We ask that you arrive at least 10-15 minutes prior to your session’s start time so you can check-in with our artists, grab your apron and paints, pour your glass of liquid creativity and settle into your paint station.

6. What should I wear to a session?

Wear whatever is comfortable for you.  We provide aprons to protect your clothes although we recommend that you wear something that you won’t mind if a little paint splashes on – accidents do happen.

7. How old do I need to be to attend a session?

You must be 18+ to attend a night session.  Children aged 12+ are welcome to paint during Sunday afternoon sessions with an accompanying painting adult, no exception.  Children aged 9+ are welcome to paint during our occasional Sunday morning sessions with an accompanying painting adult, no exception.  As our sessions are intended to be relaxing for all our patrons, due to the duration of our sessions, children under the age of 12 or 9, respectively, are not permitted to attend. Also note, it is no more than 2 children per painting adult.

8. Am I allowed to eat while I paint?

Yes! Bring along your snacks and nibbles to enjoy while you paint.

9. Do I have to paint exactly the same thing as the art instructor?
