Gig Harbor, Washington March 15, 2011;  Uncorked Canvas™, a retail business focused on providing painting instruction to both adults and children in a relaxed and fun environment will open April 8, 2011 in Gig Harbor, WA. Regular classes will be guided by a skilled artist who guides the class through creating the featured painting with simple step-by-step instructions. The guests leave home with their own personal creation.

Uncorked Canvas provides weekly prescheduled painting sessions of a featured painting. “People are amazed at what they can create with a little instruction and relaxation. It is a fun way to try something new, ” said co-owner, Robin Kinerk. She said that in trial classes held before the opening, “adults were especially amazed at what they can do.
