Q. What is a Wine and Canvas event like?
A. A fun, social, group setting, with an artist to guide you step by step in replicating the nights featured painting. By the end of the evening you will create a fabulous piece of artwork! The event times vary but we suggest arriving 30 minutes early to get the seat of your choice. Events are 2 1/2 – 3 hours with frequent breaks. Wine and Canvas is an adult event, no children under 16 are permitted. Some of our venues are an actual bar location and you must be 21 to enter. Please check description of the event.
Q. Do I need to sign up in advance?
A. We recommend signing up in advance because of limited seating, most of our events will sell out. You can register on the website or give us a call and we will be happy to walk you through the registration process.
Q. What is the cost of a Wine and Canvas event?
A. The prices range between $35-$45 depending on the night and painting. Fundraisers are usually a little more.
Q. What is included in the price?
A. We provide the Artist, Canvas, Paint, Brushes, Easels, and Aprons. Refreshments and alcohol are not included. Wine and Canvas is the name of our company because we believe "wine" is the perfect compliment to art however not everyone partakes in consuming alcohol and we do not want someone to pay for something they do not participate in. Drinking a soft drink for some individuals is a perfect combination for them. We keep the price at $35 for the supplies and instruction and do not increase the price to include beverages so that everyone has a choice. Most of our venues run drink specials or have a fun menu to choose from and our studio locations have very inexpensive drinks.
Q. What do I wear?
A. We provide aprons, but you may want to wear something you wouldn't mind getting paint on-- just in case!
Q. What time do I need to arrive for an event?
A. We recommend arriving 30 minutes early to get signed and seated.
Q. Are any events BYOB (bring your own bottle)?
A. No, none of the Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Minnesota, Nevada, Iowa or California events are BYOB. Unfortunately it is illegal in the state of Indiana, Minnesota, Nevada, and Ohio to bring your own alcoholic beverages into any business with the exception of places like Conner Prairie and Verizon Wireless Music Center, which meet State specific open land requirements. The State of California, Iowa and Illinois will allow BYOB however, none of our current venues will allow it at this time. Most of our venues offer great drink specials including the Wine and Canvas Studios.
Q. What is your cancellation policy?
A. Wine and Canvas is an entertainment event much like a concert, dinner theater or movie theater. We do allow cancelations or reschedules unlike the above but we do require a 48 hour notice. Cancellations should be made via email or by phone. This provides us the opportunity to fill the space. We will provide a full refund or reschedule you with 48 hours notice.
