What is Cork & Canvas?

It’s a social painting class where our artists will run you through step-by-step instructions on how to create your very own masterpiece in a fun and relaxed bar in Auckland. Perfect for dates, wining with mates or for meeting new friends.

We provide all the materials you need (high-quality canvas, acrylic paint, brushes). All you need to bring is your creative spirit (or find some at the bottom of a glass). At the end of the night you will leave with your own painting ready to hang up on your wall.

So what are you going to be painting?

This evening we're going to be painting one of Vincent Van Gogh's most famous paintings, outside of that bunch of flowers he painted after he cut off his ear (magic mushrooms are crazy kids). The Starry Night was inspired by his chronic visions while housed in an insane asylum in Paris. To true form, he was able to articulate his odd visions into what is now a beautiful contrast of colour and vivid brush strokes - something we surely wouldn't be able to do after taking the amount of acid he must have been on.
