San Diego Wine and Canvas
What better way to get your creative juices flowing than with San Diego’s Wine & Canvas?!! As I was walking thru Downtown San Diego’s historic Gaslamp Quarter with my family this evening, I happened upon one of these events at Taste & Thirst on Fourth Avenue. It looked like the participants were having a great time and creating some pretty impressive art pieces too!
So what is a Wine and Canvas event? It’s a 2 ½ – 3 hour event (with frequent breaks) with an artist guiding you step-by-step in replicating a fabulous piece of art. And did I mention there’s wine?!! It’s a fun and social experience that allows you to drink a little wine, visit with and make new friends, and paint. You do not need to have any art experience.
Prices range from $35-$45 depending on the night and painting. This includes the Artist, canvas, paint, brushes, easels and aprons. All locations offer great drink specials including the Wine & Canvas Studios. These events often sell out, so check the website calendar for availability and book in advance.
Taste & Thirst on Fourth Avenue , Rock Bottom Brewery in Downtown San Diego, Alfonso’s of La Jolla, Mosaic Wine Bar in North Park, and Fifty Seven Degrees are just a few of the San Diego locations offering a Wine & Canvas event this April 2012. A San Diego Wine & Canvas Studio is also in the works and should be opening soon.
Little did I know but Wine & Canvas is not unique to San Diego, but also has locations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, Minneapolis, Cincinnati, and more! For a complete list of locations, check out their website.
In addition to Wine & Canvas, they also offer events for kids called Cookies & Canvas! This is a fabulous idea for kids’ birthday parties in San Diego and private events!
If you’re like me, you’re always looking for new, fun things to do in San Diego! Wine & Canvas is just that – it’s fun, it’s social, and you’ll have something to show for it at the end of the night! Book your event and let you inner artist out!

I tried something like this in San Diego, but it was called Art Uncorked. It was an awesome date night for me and my Fiance’. We went to an event at 98 Bottles. It was a great venue because we had the entire back room to ourselves, they had good drink special, and the instructor did a good job of guiding us through the process. We actually have our paintings hanging in our living room. I highly recommend checking them out. Their website is : http://art-uncorked.com/sd
