Our 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!

5. What time should I arrive?

Our doors open 15 minutes before each session and painting starts at 7pm during evening sessions and at 2:30pm during our Saturday afternoon sessions and 2pm during our Sunday afternoon sessions. We ask that you arrive at least 10-15 minutes prior to the painting 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.
