How We Roll
Our Paint & Sip Process
Canvas Corks and Forks is committed to showing our guests the most amazing paint & sip experience ever. Our paint & sip parties are the best around and we have paint and sip locations in both Schenectady and Troy, NY. Our paint and sip artisits are also super creative, excellent teachers, and a ton of fun to hang out with!
No biggie, we have the answers! Below are some of our more frequent questions we receive, so we thought it would be helpful to get you ahead of the game!
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us and one of our friendly artists will be happy to assist you.
Hope to see you soon!
Art studio attire?
We do provide guests with cool aprons, but SPLAT HAPPENS!! Dressed in a head to toe white ensemble is not suggested!!!
Can I rent your studio?
SURE!!! Both of our studios are a perfect place for you to hold any event, with or without art instruction!! We provide a private party menu of appetizers & salads in addition to our Signature Mac N’ Cheese Bar! Super fun for Bachelorette, Bridal/Baby Showers, Family Re-Unions, Rehearsal Dinners, Anniversary, Corporate Team Builders or Birthday Events!
Can someone attend a class without pre-registering?
We recommend pre-registering for classes through our website class calendar to guarantee your seat!! Walk-ins are welcome with a $2 walk in fee and is subject to availability.
Cancellations and refunds?
We do not offer refunds. With 48 hour notice of cancellation you will receive a credit towards a future public class. If you do not show up for the event, you will not receive a credit. Unfortunately, we have come to this policy as our previous policy of offering refunds was consistently abused: Reserving seats in a class, where the guest does not attend or short notice prevents us from re-selling the seat is not refundable. SIDE NOTE – Offering a credit to our customers in the event of a cancellation is beyond what is offered at any other ticketing facility! Concert Halls, Music Venues, Theaters or even Movie theaters do not offer this courtesy, you purchase a ticket, there are no refunds, exchanges or credits.
Do I need experience painting?
So, you’ve never painted before??? No WORRIES!! 90% of our guests never have or at least not since grade school!! Our paintings are well thought out and planned by professional artists and teachers to guide you step by step to create your very own beautiful painting to take home! You will not believe how relaxing, fun and easy it is! We are always so proud of our guests who explore their hidden creative talents to their very own surprise! Okay, OK! The Wine DOES help…. a little:) The painting is only a % of the total PAINT, SIP, EAT experience!!!
