The first Coffee and Canvas™ class I ever held was at a local coffee shop called Mama’s Java. I worked there as a barista because I thought I wanted to have a coffee shop with an art gallery in it one day, but after teaching just one class I feel in love with teaching painting and decided to hold more classes at the coffee shop. Since we were at a coffee shop when my friend Tamara came up with the name Coffee and Canvas™ I was all for it!
We opened in April 2012.
A mobile painting party is an art class held at your home, office, church etc. We bring all the supplies to your location to finish an 11×14 canvas painting that you and your friends take home. You provide the location, tables, chairs, and invite all your friends.
If you can imagine it we can make it work! Here are some past parties to get your mind thinking: Kid’s and adult birthday parties, block parties, ladies night out, bachelorette parties, office parties, church group parties, girl and boy scout parties, sports team parties, Mommy/Daughter (parent/child) parties, couple’s parties and the list goes on!
Yes, we can come to your house, but we can also do the party in other locations like your church, office, favorite restaurant (with permission from the restaurant), your favorite park, and more!
We started in a coffee shop, and that is why we are called Coffee and Canvas™. It is up to the hostess how they want to run the food and drink side of the party. We do not provide any refreshments. Oftentimes parties are BYOB wine nights!
Yes. We have small table top easels and table cloths. It is up to the hostess if they want to use their own table cloths.
Yes, we have adult and children’s aprons.
No, but we do have large drop clothes. We use acrylic paint, which washes easily off of wood, tile and chairs etc. with soap and water so covering the floor is optional.
Adult painting parties take two hours of painting time and kid’s painting parties take an hour to hour and half; we always budget an hour on each end of the painting time for set up and cleanup.
Yes, all transactions are run through Pay Pal.
If you cancel your party more than two (2) weeks before your reserved time slot, you will get half of your deposit back. You will not get your deposit back if you cancel within two (2) weeks of your party.
Your instructor will guide you through the process. Balances are due at the end of your party.
We charge the adult price per painter ($40).
Go ahead and pay your deposit to be sure you get the date and time you want. We can always move things around if absolutely necessary, but please note our deposit refund policy still stands (see answer to “Is my deposit refundable?” question).

Our free kid’s club is held at the Nolensville Public Library typically on the third Thursday of every month. This schedule can change though so make sure to “Like” our Facebook page to keep informed. We bring all the supplies. We ask that parents stay with their kids to help them paint if they are under 7 years old. The club is first come, first served; we cannot guarantee a spot for your child.
