Meet Uncorked Canvas

Uncork Your Creativity!

Premiere Paint Studio in Tacoma

Uncorked Canvas® was founded in April of 2011. Ours was the first Peninsula-based paint and wine studio south of Seattle.

Making Art Possible

We believe that art should be accessible and possible. Our focus is to provide encouraging and artistic ways for people of all levels of experience (and no experience) to complete a piece of art they can be proud of. Creativity should be open to everyone!

Our Location

Uncorked Canvas’ studio (21+) is located in downtown Tacoma, on the ground floor of a lovely vintage converted-condo building on A Street overlooking the water.

Hours of Operation

The paint studios are open during class times (see our Tacoma calendar for more info) or by appointment only. Studio and office are closed Mondays. 

We are not always in the office, so please forgive any delay in response – we promise we will get back to you as soon as possible! ❤️

Danessa Martinez

Danessa Martinez

Art Instructor, Event Coordinator, Customer Support Specialist

Danessa was born and raised in Colorado but quickly fell in love with the PNW after visiting Washington many years ago.

Although her career focus was in the veterinary world for many years, she also found a way to express herself through a multitude of arts and crafts including painting, writing, jewelry making, furniture restoration, and more.

When she isn’t exploring her new home state of Washington or spoiling her cats, you can find her seeking out her next creative adventure in art.
