Working local artists put paint, brush, and canvas in students’ hands and lead them through recreating a bright, serene painting to take home. Sessions take place several days a week at bars and restaurants throughout the metropolitan San Francisco area; check the calendar for locations, times, and paintings. Though not included, each location typically offers unique drink specials to keep creative juices flowing throughout the session.Wine and Canvas
The artists at Wine and Canvas awaken their students’ inner Rembrandts and Van Goghs with classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.
