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
Walk In Canvas Painting
Have an idea for a painting you want to do? Not sure what you want to try but your sure it isn’t going to be what everyone else in your group wants to do? Just feel like giving it a go? Your Creation Station is the answer. We offer Walk In Canvas Painting allowing you to just walk in anytime during our normal business hours, choose your canvas size, choose your design and take as long as you want to complete your project. Paint what you want, when you want to paint it on the size canvas of your choosing.
Workshops or Classes
At a Canvas 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 Designs
Ideas come from anywhere. But sometimes we understand getting stuck. At Your Creation Station, we have a few years under our belts painting canvases and we’ve hung more than a few of our more popular desins right on the walls for you to choose from. Some have instructions on how to paint, some have designs to transfer on and some don’t, and while results may vary, all are achievable by anyone coming to our studio. Don’t like what you see, check out our Pinterest boards, Facebook page and Instagram page for ideas of what others have done.
It looks like a big fun mess and it is but we take care of all the fuss and clean up so you can focus on your creation. Choose any size canvas we offer, the thicker ones are particularly fun to do, and go to town. We have paints mixed and thinned to the right consistency for doing fluid art designs and all you need to do is walk in and start pouring. Use our hairdryers to move the paint around, spritz in some silicone for cool bubble effects or fill a cup and flip it over on the canvas. Our staff is on hand to help and offer suggestions.
Canvas Painting Environment
Canvas Paintings are done right here at Your Creation Station in the relaxed, can-do atmosphere you’re already comfortable with. Off site alternatives are available. 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 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. Don’t expect us to hold your hand but we won’t leave you hanging either. We’re more about showing you how to use fishing poles than we are about giving away fish.
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
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.
