Manhattan's original Canvas & Cork painting workshops and parties.

Join Straight Upp Creative Studio for Canvas & Cork, where you're sure to "uncork" your creativity! We're the first "paint and sip" studio in Manhattan, Kansas. This unique concept is just what Manhattanites need for a FUN night out! With a drink in one hand and a paintbrush in the other, it's a great way to spend time with friends and paint your very own masterpiece. Perfect for girls' night out, bachelorette parties, children's birthdays (no wine, of course) or team-building events.

Bring your own wine (BYOW) or beer, and our instructors will lead you step-by-step as you recreate the featured painting. At the end of the night, you'll have your very own piece of artwork to take home and hang on your wall.


We provide everything you need, including the canvas, paint, easel, brushes and aprons. No previous painting experience is necessary. In fact, if you think you have zero creativity and can barely draw a stick figure, then this is the place for you!

All Canvas & Cork events must be registered for in advance through our WORKSHOPS CALENDAR.
