What is a class at The Social Canvas like?
In a relaxed, social, group setting, an artist will guide you through replicating the night's featured painting step by step. Whether you are an aspiring Van Gogh or just looking to explore your creative side, you are sure to go home with a painting that is uniquely yours. By the end of the evening you will be amazed at the artwork you have created! We suggest arriving 10 minutes before class time to get registered, the seat of your choice, grab a glass of wine or beer, smock up and prepare for the paint party! Classes are 1 1/2 - 2 hours hours.

Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes! We offer gift certificates for a variety of prices. You can buy them on our website and print them out at home!

What if I want to just watch my friend/child paint and only hang out?
Every seat has an easel and canvas and has a painting class fee, why not just paint! If you stay, you pay. You'll be glad you did!.

Do I have to paint the piece of artwork scheduled for that night??
NO, you may paint what you wish and feel free to change your color palette! YOU are the artist, you may paint anything your creativity leads you to do.

May I purchase the paintings I see displayed on the walls?
Sometimes, but wouldn’t you prefer to paint them yourself and enjoy the experience? Just tell the staff which particular painting you’re interested in. There is an 'art for sale' rack by the bar, too.

Do I need to sign up in advance?
Because of limited seating, signing up in advance is always recommended. You can register on the website or give us a call. If a class is sold out, please give us a call to be put on our waiting list. Due to last minute cancellations, we can almost always get you in!

What is the cost of a class at The Social Canvas?
The price ranges between $25-$40 depending on the age of the painter, type of session, and day of the week.

What is included in the price?
We provide Canvases, Paint, Brushes, Easels, Aprons, and of course the instruction!

What do I wear?
We will provide aprons, but we recommend wearing something you wouldn't mind getting paint on—just in case! Remember—we are using acrylic paints so be sure to leave nice jackets and purses at home! The Social Canvas cannot be responsible for any paint damage.

What time do I need to arrive for a class?
We recommend getting there 10 minutes early to get registered and get the seat of your choice. This will give you time to grab a glass of wine or beer and smock up!

What is your cancellation policy?
Because of our waiting lists, we ask you to give us 48 hours notice if you need to cancel. Cancellations should be made online or by phone. This provides us the opportunity to fill the space. We will charge the class fee for reservations not cancelled 48 hours in advance.

When does the new schedule come out?
We try to post the schedule at least six weeks in advance. Join our email list to get a sneak peak of the monthly calendar via email a few days before the online posting.

I missed a painting that I really want to paint! How often will you repeat paintings?
Please let us know! We will keep this in mind when scheduling the next months paintings!
