The Canvas Roadshow

We offer a wide range of art classes to help you discover your inner artist.


The Canvas Roadshow has been leading painters step by step since 2012 and began doing DIY workshops in 2015. Everyone can get creative in our wood workshops, canvas painting classes and sea glass art workshops. Our artists make it easy, social and super exciting. Come with your friends/family or on your own, everyone is always welcome. Join a public event or book a private party.

With Hammer & Stain, you take bare wood to finished piece of decor with our help. Everyone gets a personalized stencil for their project. You choose colors that work with your home to create an amazing custom piece to display proudly. Distressing is a fun part of our process, too! From home shutters that are four feet tall, rustic wood signs, winter sleds and centerpiece boxes, we are always coming up with new pieces you will want to come back to finish for your home.
