Canvases are available as a walk-in option and it couldn’t be any easier:

Canvas painting is a “make & take” option, which is great when you don’t have time to come back to pick up your project, or you just can’t wait to show off your art work! You paint, wait a few minutes for the acrylic to dry, and take it home. Canvas is great for artists in a hurry or anyone who needs a last minute, handmade gift.
