Canvas and Cabernet opens in Aksarben

Walking into Canvas and Cabernet, a new addition to the Aksarben area, you might not be sure what you're getting yourself into.
On one side, the walls are covered in seemingly elementary paintings. The walls on the opposite side are lined with artistic masterpieces.  There is a stage and about 20 painting stations.  Keep walking and there are shelves with eclectic items for sale. Keep walking farther, and you'll run into the bar.
At this point, you aren't really sure if you're in a bar, gallery, gift shop or classroom.
The truth is that Canvas and Cabernet is all of these things.  It is an exciting new venue that offers instructed painting "classes" to groups. But, this isn't your average painting class.
