2019 Thursday Cork and Canvas Schedule

We invite both men and women to join us for an evening of creative fun . . . Experimenting with a wide variety of art media, while socially interact with others around you. We even supply refreshments to make the evening more enjoyable. GREAT for Girls Night Out or Date Night!

Cork & Canvas is from 7:00 to 9:00
You must be over 21 to attend.

Cost: $15 / person
Just call 309-945-5428 to reserve your spot at our next class.
Payment is due the night of the class.
All materials and refreshments are included in the cost. We usually offer “Cork & Canvas" on 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month.

We begin by teaching you about the art medium we are featuring and encourage you to have fun learning more about the creative process. In the end our participants are amazed at what they have accomplished.

As we come closer to the date of an upcoming Cork & Canvas step-by-step art class we will create a special painting or drawing just for that evening. You will be able to view it on facebook and in our store about a week before the scheduled art class.

Painting without a Brush Step-by-Step, Sping Flowers Blooming
Capture the wind, and the joy of May, in this special evening of step-by-step painting. Flowers blooming, the sun shining, the joy in the air can all be captured in paint ...but we do this without using paintbrushes. Come and learn “alternate” ways to apply paint to a canvas, all while having fun and developing new friendships. Cost: $15/person  You must be over 21 to attend.

NO THURSDAY ART CLASSES – May 23 thru June 16

Thursday Night, June 20th From 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Wire Sculpture Learn to make a wire armature and use your imagination to make it your own.
There has been an increasing request for an evening of wire sculpture. We start in a step-by-step manner as participants make a simple wire armature. Then imaginations leap as everyone explores their own unique way to expand on a simple sculpture form. Expressive people and animals begin to emerge out of a variety of wire. This is only limited by your imagination! Cost: $15/person  You must be over 21 to attend.

We will be listing our Summer Thursday Cork and Canvas Class Schedule in June.
