BlueTreesLGCreative people often get the same answer when they ask friends and family what they would like for holiday gifts: “Just make me something.”

Sometimes this translates poorly. I’ve yet to figure out how to write blog posts that would compare to a bow-wrapped present under the tree.

But for those of you who are visually gifted, there is good news. Canvas and Cocktails, best known for offering social, step-by-step painting classes, now offers an Open Painting time Tuesdays through Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For $25, you get open studio time, a canvas, paint, brushes, and a palette to create your masterpiece.

Want guidance with your visual artistry? Canvas and Cocktails offers plenty of classes focused on tutorials. Many of this week’s  have sold out, but swing by next week to paint the Denver skyline or some bold, funky trees.
