Canvas Painting

Your Creation Station offers Canvas Painting! We have all the materials and tools you’ll need to create your own canvas painting. As with other projects at Your Creation Station, the mess stays here, the price includes everything and all you need to do is show up. For Canvas Painting, you’ll leave with your finished canvas, suitable for hanging that evening.

What to Expect

At a Workshop or Class

At the workshop, participants work step by step through each element of the selected design. The instructor will provide assistance in selecting the correct brush, mixing colors and applying them to the canvas to achieve the desired effect. We’ll have transfer patterns available to make the layout easier or tips and hints on how to do it freehand if you prefer that route. Workshops are offered on a per design basis and although everyone is working on the same picture, be prepared for individual results.

Canvas Painting are done right here at Your Creation Station in the relaxed, can-do atmosphere you’re already comfortable with. Our studio was initially established in 2005 and Your Creation Station has been open to the public since 2008. We are not a chain or a franchise. You can expect our workshops to be reasonably sized, run on a reliable schedule with as much time as you need to finish your painting. Plan on spending two to three hours painting at a relaxed pace. Dress comfortably but don’t wear your Sunday best, we’re using acrylic paints and they don’t come out as easily as the ceramic underglazes (the paints used for pottery painting) do. If you have a apron or smock you like to use, feel free to bring it. You are also welcome to bring anything you like to eat or drink.

As always, we’re here to help you succeed in achieving your artistic vision with the same patience and easy to follow instructions you expect at Your Creation Station. Most importantly, remember, your more creative than you give yourself credit for and we know it, even if you don’t believe it.

Cost Canvas Size and Design
Canvas Workshop – Finished Masterpieces!
Finished Masterpieces!

We offer eight different size canvases, starting at 4″ x 4″ and going up to 16″ x 20″, priced starting from $9 to $35. When choosing a canvas design, consider the age of the participant as well as the complexity and size of the design. Although we don’t place any concrete restrictions on how old participants are we generally recommend participant to be at least 6 years or older. Smaller sized canvases tend to be geared more towards younger painters while larger sized canvases tend to be geared towards younger at heart painters. The workshop price includes the canvas, the paint, the instruction and access to everything else you need to complete the design. When the workshop is complete, you’ll leave with your masterpiece that evening and we’ll clean up the mess.
