Why Canvas and Cabernet? Here’s 5 good reasons!

As new paint and sip studios continue to open in and around the Omaha area, you have more choices than ever for your creative entertainment. Here are the 5 TOP reasons to come to Canvas and Cabernet in Aksarben Village for your art-as-entertainment outing:

1.  Location, location, location.  Located in Aksarben Village–the heart of Omaha, there’s always something going on. There are great bars and restaurants right down the block, Stinson Park events and concerts, Omaha Farmer’s Market on Sunday mornings–starting up in May, and a great vibe.

2.  Our artists are the best! Jacqueline, Gabi, Amanda, Stacia, CaSandra, Kalle…all talented artists. Several are educators; all are creative, fun, and know how to teach. Sessions are fun and lively, AND your paintings turn out awesome.

3.  Our inspiring gallery. You won’t find a dropped ceiling, dark paint, and walls filled with clutter; we are proud of our clean, light, and airy gallery feel. Not only can you paint and sip–you can shop, and who doesn’t like to shop??? Jewelry, paintings, ceramics, wood, glass….at all price points. We are open 1/2 hour before, and during paint sessions.

5. Quality team building events. Sure, you can come with a team to paint and have a great, fun social outing. However, if you want a paint and sip event with a customized painting activity related to a learning objective–Village Canvas and Cabernet is the place! We’ve got experience with groups of all sizes, and can tailor an event to meet your goal(s) and objectives.

Our corporate values are: Community, Creativity, Originality and Quality. You see it the minute you check our website, or walk into the door of our gallery. THAT sets us apart!

 

Cocktail Party Fun

As much as we enjoy paint parties, we find that good ole cocktail party/receptions are so much fun! Casual and personal–the events take on the ‘vibe’ of the planners and the event.

This past week, I hosted my Leadership Omaha class (#32–best class ever!) for a gathering. Even with the impending snow, we had a great turn out. We caught up, promised to see each other again soon, and renewed connections from our class 6 years ago.

Using the space for events other than painting just make sense, and I’m so glad we are able to utilize our venue in this way. Recently, we cleared out some of our consignment displays that were in the middle of the room. Now we have plenty of space for our cocktail tables, and for larger groups–more room for food, etc.

Wood Door Hanger Sessions

Practical, functional, and tons of fun to create! We are offering door hanger sessions every month at Door Hanger Sessions, and at our Open Studio sessions as well. Many shapes available, and we are adding new ones all the time–so keep tuned! Our circle shape is the most versatile….any season; any design!

The cost is $45, and includes instruction, wood shape (selected in advance), paints, ribbon, and a complimentary drink. Plan on 2 to 2 1/2 hours to complete.

Sessions are limited to 20 painters, and reservations must be made by 1 week in advance to ensure shapes are available.
