With the love of art and entertainment it's no wonder that a bottle or two of wine would get involved to create Wine and Canvas! Who knew painting and sipping wine with a few friends on the dining room table would launch this national brand. Wine and Canvas was started in Indianapolis, Indiana in February 2010 and is proud to bring the experience to studios, restaurants, corporate tabletops and your home from coast to coast!

Wine and Canvas is not just a paint class, it is art entertainment at its finest. Awesome local artists, great customer service and beautiful surroundings make for an amazing experience that you don't find anywhere else. Sipping your favorite wine or cocktail, letting your inner artist out to create a masterpiece and maybe breaking into song throughout the night is what we have planned for you! Leave your cares at the door and dive in to the paint party! Best part you take your artwork with you and leave the clean up behind!

Local artists in each city inspire and Instruct Wine and Canvas customers step-by-step to create their finished masterpiece. 

Wine and Canvas is an inexpensive way to pick up the paintbrush! Cheaper than art school or private lessons and with no lengthy commitments Wine and Canvas is the answer! Join us once a week, once a month or for special occasions and you can be sure that you will create a collection that is uniquely yours! Just like a signature everyone has their own style and we know you will find yours as we encourage you to let the paint flow!
