What is a Corks & Canvas session like?
Studio Winery provides a laid-back, social atmosphere in a way that inspires all to relax and get creative. Our Corks & Canvas sessions require no experience and no talent is required. Our owner artist Kathy guides all of the sessions with easy-to-follow, step-by-step group instruction, plus everyone gets individualized attention if needed. And everyone leaves with their own completed original artwork! Enjoy painting, & wine or beer in our low stress, fun sessions that are playful and light-hearted encouraging you to just follow along or go outside your lines.
Do I need to sign up in advance?
Our sessions are limited to 40 painters so signing up in advance is highly recommended. You can register online or give us a call to reserve your space. Always feel free to drop us a line or drop in to see if there is any last minute availability. We try our best to accommodate everyone!

What is included in the price?

What is your cancellation policy?
Because we are family owned and operated with limited session sizes we request you give us 24 hours notice if you can't make a session. This gives us a chance to fill the space. Cancellations should be made via e-mail or by phone. It is always our pleasure to issue a credit, we understand things happen. We cannot accommodate refunds if you cancel within 24-hours of scheduled session date. On rare occasions, we may need to cancel a session, we will contact you within 24-hours if such cancellation is necessary. In this case, refunds or credit will be issued.

What do I wear?
We practice safe-painting with supplied aprons, but suggest you wear clothing that is not your nicest. Dress comfortably and remember splatter happens.
What if I've never painted before?
No worries! We guide both beginners and intermediate painters alike with no talent or experience required. But don’t worry! You’re painting won’t look like a beginner's : )
What time do I need to arrive for a session?
Try to arrive 10 to 15 minutes before the posted session start time. So you can check-in, find your seat, get your supplies and start sipping.

frequently asked painting questions
Can I BYOB?
We are sorry but No. It is a legal thing. No outside beverages or alcohol may be brought in.
Can I bring in my own food?
We offer cheese, salami, baguettes, crackers, and pizza for you to munch on. Private after hour events can arrange to have their event catered.
Can I bring in my own supplies and materials?
You are more than welcome to do so, however there is no discount on the session.
Do I have to paint the featured artwork?
You certainly can paint anything you want although Kathy will be teaching the featured painting. You are encouraged to make the featured painting your own, change colors, change shapes, reflect your personal style & flair!
What if I just want to drink and not paint?
If you are just into painting the town red and not a canvas, it is our pleasure to serve you a drink anytime we are open. During scheduled sessions table seats are for painters only. However, feel free to sit and watch!
If I come with a group, can we all sit together?
Seating is first come, first served, but if you call us in advance, or let us know when registering for a session, we will try to make sure your whole party stays together.
If I come with my significant other do we have to paint the same image?
Although every painting turns out differently, we can make suggestions so that both artworks compliment each other and you don't end up with two of the exact same paintings.

Yes, we can help you plan for any special event, celebration or function! Whether personal or business, we make it as easy as a paint-by-number. Visit our Private Painting Party page for details.
