Corks N Canvas™ was started in 2007 by Cathy Deano and Renee Maloney in Mandeville, Louisiana. The concept pairs instructional art with friends, wine and a lively instructor to produce individual works of art. With four Greater New Orleans Area Corks N Canvas™ locations, the company began franchising the business as Painting with a Twist in 2009. To date 18 franchise locations have been sold all over the state of Louisiana as well as in Florida and Texas. Headquartered in Mandeville, the company maintains the artwork copy rights and brand direction of the franchise locations to insure that every location produces the same fun experience by which the company was founded on.
Corks N Canvas™ is one of the largest employers of aspiring artists. The company recognized early on that the talents and enthusiasm of the staff were key elements to the success of the product. In just three years, Corks N Canvas has produced and owns the copy right to over 500 pieces of art.
Looking for a fun evening out while creating your own masterpiece?
We have the answer! Come alone or grab a friend or two, your favorite bottle of wine or beverage*, and paint a picture along with a local artist.
Join us for an evening of creativity and camaraderie. We'll provide your paint, canvas and brushes and you'll have a fun evening with friends. Plus, at the end of the evening, you’ll have a one-of-a-kind creation and, hopefully, a newfound talent you'll want to explore! This is not your average art class, this is art entertainment.
Think it's beyond you? Our instructor will guide you through each step of recreating the featured picture, and you'll have painlessly created a piece of art before you know it. Have a sip and paint a stroke and you will find your inner Rembrandt.
There are no commitments, so join us once a month or as many times as you would like, you will have a great time!
If you want the place to yourself, book a private party and pick any of the over 700 paintings we have. In fact, we do birthday parties, bachelorette parties, office parties, sorority functions...even date nights and special events.
It’s a little bit of paint, a little of wine and a whole lot of fun!
