Welcome to Community Canvas. We are a local artist based 501(c)3 non-profit organization. It is our mission to “Creatively Connect Art and Community.” We believe that education in the arts should be accessible and enjoyable for all ages.

We are “mobilizing” creativity, bringing the art to you at school or at play. By hosting public painting events at our local restaurants and wineries, we are able to provide standards based art enrichment classes within our local schools and senior community.

We are located at “Studio 301″ in the St. Joseph’s Cultural Center on the top floor; 410 S. Church St. Ste. 301 Grass Valley.

Rise to a new challenge

Community Canvas at School

Our philosophy is to show children that everyone can be an artist, to build the child’s self- esteem, and show them that there is no right or wrong way to do art.

Community Canvas classes are easy to set up! Together we decide which day(s) of the week works best for you and your students. Together we spread the word to Students and Parents. Community Canvas does the rest!!! We will handle all the administrative work. You provide the room and your support. Community Canvas can work within your schools guidelines to meet YOUR needs.

Please contact (530) 272-2213 for more information about art in your school.

Community Canvas at Play

starry_night_mar13_02We are the trendiest night out!  We travel to different venues all over Nevada County.  Patrons register well in advance through our online calendar to attend our events and enjoy creating their interpretation of the featured painting. Events typically last 2.5 to 4 hours.   Some of our venues like to prepare finger foods and flights of wine to heighten the experience.

What could be better than painting with a glass of wine or a great appetizer?  Absolutely no experience is necessary and patrons leave with a finished original piece of art.

Have an upcoming private event? Community Canvas is unique in that we come to YOU. Party size depends on your accommodations or contact us to coordinate your experience with one of our partner venues. We supply all of the painting materials, paint related clean up, and of course the inspiration.

Please contact (530) 272-2213 for more information.
