Making a big splash in the South Bend area, and not just with paint, is the evening entertainment event, Wine and Canvas. Originating in Indianapolis, Wine and Canvas can be found throughout the country in large and small cities including San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Cleveland to name only a few. However, the South Bend franchise is one of the strongest and most active! And they are expanding further west in Indiana! Promising more than just a good time, Wine and Canvas will send you home with your own work of art!
Wine and Canvas in South Bend is a very busy young business. At less than 3 years old, Wine and Canvas is thriving! There are events almost every night of the week. Normally at a restaurant or similar venue, a participant pays $35 in advance, which gets them everything they need for an excellent night. The $35 includes your 16 x 20 inch canvas as well as paint and supplies, and, you know, lessons in making your painting yours and beautiful. You can eat, drink, and chat as you paint the night away. The food and drink isn't included in the $35 fee, but you can choose whatever you like, you are certainly not limited to wine. When the night is done you will have an original piece of art ready for hanging with no frame needed. Wine and Canvas is also available to host a private event if you like, anywhere you choose, and they promise, "Whatever you can think of they can do." They even have a kid's version called Cookies and Canvas that happens on Saturday mornings for the younger fun lovers. Wine and Canvas may be a young business, but the demand is high and the availability for a good time is great with their help.
What if you aren't a painter? The beauty of Wine and Canvas is no skill is required or desired to attend an event. The staff will assist you along the way as you paint your unique and personal work. They also provide all the tools to your success making it easy for anyone, novice or expert, to paint a great picture! So its no big deal if you have never painted, you might just love it, and if you don't that's what the wine is for!Since Wine and Canvas is so busy, there is often a waitlist each month; they are starting to expand outside of the South Bend area. New for February are events in Michigan City at the Blue Chip Casino's club, It's Vegas Baby. Based on all the requests by their customers look for more events reaching into northwest Indiana. They are also expanding the daily offerings as well to help increase the seats for painters. In addition to the larger geographic coverage they are also working on a acquiring a studio site.
