Were talking about raw artistic talent, not food (thank goodness).
Inspired by the popular Art Jamming soirees in Hong Kong, Yaletowns new
Raw Canvas is a spin on the hot, paintertainment trend right
here in Terminal City.
Part gritty urban art-studio, part coffee lounge and soon-to-be wine
bar, Raw Canvas draws you into its dramatic Paris Salon meets whimsical
Alice in Wonderland embrace. Think lush, luxe and curvy Christopher Guy
chaises, purple wallpaper from Cole + Sons, and a dramatic gilded mirror
that casts a soft reflection onto the expansive space.
Sip espresso (from 49th Parallel), sway to a live DJ’s beats, and get
down to a blank canvas (preferably with a group of just-as-excited or
nervous friends) and make a bold gesture with some paint. Its fun.
Full length smocks (no paint on those Chie
Miharas please), and a Crayola-esque assortment of paint, brushes
and supplies are provided, as is all the time you need.
Watch out Frida
Kahlo, here you come.
