#Indianapolis – Indianapolis children have a fun option for artistic opportunity at the most unlikely place- at our local Wine and Canvas studio. On Saturday mornings, the studio swaps out its wine glasses for trays of cookies, and they welcome younger artists. Saturday classes are known as “Cookies and Canvas”, and packaged cookies are offered as a snack for all artists. Children (and adults) take their seats, and at 11am, class begins. Over the course of two hours, participants are guided through the process of painting a canvas from start to finish.
Participants are set up with a canvas, a palette of the needed colors, and brushes. The instructor starts the class with an overview of the brushes, so that participants are sure to use the right one each time. She then begins the step by step process. There are monitors in the studio, so that each participant has a clear view.
Throughout the class, the instructor and the assistants circulate up and down the aisles, offering guidance as needed. The two hour process went by quickly, and our party of artists got more excited as the painting got closer and closer to being finished.
The whole room was happy to complete the project, and as we were leaving, I realized one of the biggest perks to doing such a project at Wine and Canvas is that they take care of the clean up! Does it get any better than having all of the supplies at the ready, professional instruction, snacks while you paint, and a clean-up crew?
Participants can register for Cookies and Canvas, as well as Wine and Canvas on the Wine and Canvas website, or by stopping into the studio. Each project can be viewed on the website’s monthly calendar.
In addition to classes nearly every day of the month, Wine and Canvas also hosts private events. The private event room can host birthday parties, bridal showers, bachelorette parties or team building events.
Cookies and Canvas is a fun activity for families on a Saturday morning. Check the Cookies and Canvas calendar for fun, seasonal painting projects.
