Get crafty! Cork & Canvas brings their studio to our living rooms

Published: 14 April 2020: Coco the Frenchie is ready for her online painting classes

Calling all potential Picasso’s and budding Basquiat’s because those of us who love pairing out portraits with a pinot can now do so from home with Cork & Canvas’ new Paint & Sup sessions & supplies delivery. Yep you heard that right, world-class art teachers and step-by-step painting lessons are now at your fingertips.

The Cork & Canvas creative kit

If you’ve got art supplies at home already classes start from just $25 where you can choose from a multitude of different artwork options. For those of us like yours truly, whose artistic ventures are within the finger-painting realm Cork & Canvas has you covered with their creative kits, which they deliver to your door. Starting at $65 for singles and going all the way to $230 for the whole family the kits are tailored to the lesson you’ve chosen and provide all the brushes, paints and canvases that you could possibly need. All you need to do is load the video and get painting!

The perfect isolation activity setup featuring a Cork & Canvas online lesson

On the transition from studios to online classes founder of Cork & Canvas Melinda Jeniszewski noted, “We are always looking for new innovative ways to offer paint and sip experiences in and outside of our studios. COVID-19 has no doubt challenged us to come up with something new and creative in the form of our online workshops. We hope these classes bring Australia and the world some much needed downtime and relaxation during a very stressful time.”

As one of many businesses adapting to the new COVID-19 restrictions Cork & Canvas makes sure that while you aren’t in the studio, you are guided through the painting process artfully and clearly. One of the added bonuses to the at-home art lesson is the ability to stop and pause whenever you please (for those who are slower to catch up or to go and fetch another bottle of liquid creativity), so no one gets left behind.

For those who are a little tense and anxious in these testing times, this is the perfect activity for you. Research has shown that after just 45mins of creativity, stress on the body lowers, so imagine how chilled out you’ll be after the full 2-hour workshop. This writer can confirm that after a couple of hours of pairing my creativity with an oaky chardonnay, my cabin-fever levels were the lowest they’ve been in weeks.
