I have to say that was a good time at The Social Canvas a few weeks back where the put together local art classes and painting events where you can get together as a couple or with a group of friends and take a painting class at a local establishment.
Right now classes are typically 2 times a week at alternating locations and a different theme painting is chosen for that week.
The week my wife and I went the class was held at Iguana Mack’s restaurant where there were easels setup on tables and you get to sit (or stand if you prefer) and paint with acrylics with all painting supplies provided. Francesca then shows you step by step how to start your painting and it is amazing to watch how everyone has a unique style and approach.
For our class we did a Van Gogh lilies painting style and you can see my wife and I painted very similar but unique versions of the same painting.
When you are taking a Social Canvas class you can eat, drink and be social while painting and it really was a fun time and made for a great date that my wife and I went on. If you live in the Phoenix area, or are visiting, I highly recommend you visit The Social Canvas and book a class, have some fun, meet some people or just go as a group and do something different. They have weeknight classes or Saturday classes, and even do private parties too!
