Corks 2 Canvas is Branson, Missouri’s first interactive art lounge, providing a stimulating experience for paint and wine lovers.
The concept is unique and simple: bring your friends, your favorite bottle of wine and uncork your creativity to paint your
own masterpiece. Offering interactive paint classes where participants follow along as local artists provide “follow the leader”
instruction, no artistic experience is necessary. A comfortable and relaxing location and background music that sets the mood,
and walls decked with an array of eclectic paintings, you will feel as if you’re in a cross between a cozy wine bar and a swanky
art gallery, except this one comes with a blank canvas and paint brush in front of you to channel your own creativity as it sparks
with every sip and every smile.
How it all started
The owners of Corks 2 Canvas are Tom and Dee Elledge of Branson, Missouri. Tom’s background has covered various forms
of graphic art and design since his early days in high school. After graduation, Tom met Dee and they eventually married, moving
from north east Iowa to the Ozarks and starting a family. Tom and Dee worked in a variety of jobs while they fueled there
passion for art. Dee was heavily involved with a family craft business, while Tom painted signs and advertising part time until he
had become so busy it turned into a full time business for nearly 16 years. Self training in graphic art and design that he has made
a career of for more than 20 years. Check out www.big3design.com for more information.
Recently, while on a vacation to Texas, the Elledges were blessed to experience a paint party experience for themselves.
Since that evening, Tom and Dee have worked tirelessly to bring this unique and memorable experience to Branson, Missouri.
It is our sincere hope that you take the time to enjoy some time with your friends, have a sip of your favorite beverage and let
us take you through making your own one of a kind painting that you’ll likely want to share with your friends and loved ones.
Painting can be very relaxing and therapeutic, and fun. Now add a few close friends and you make memories!!!
Hope to see you soon!
