Corks N Canvas was started in 2007 by Cathy Deano and Renee Maloney in Mandeville, Louisiana. The concept pairs instructional art with friends, wine and a lively instructor to produce individual works of art. With four locations in the Greater New Orleans Area, the company began franchising the business under the mark Painting with a Twist® in 2009. To date, 314 franchise locations are open all over the country. Headquartered in Mandeville, Louisiana the company maintains the artwork copyrights and brand direction of the franchise locations to insure that every location produces the same fun experience by which the company was founded.
Painting with a Twist (formerly Corks N Canvas) is the largest employer of aspiring artists in the country. The company recognized early on that the talents and enthusiasm of the staff were key elements to the success of the product. In just five years, Painting with a Twist, along with our 314 franchise locations, has produced and owns the copyright to over 3,500 pieces of art. Each artwork was conceptualized and executed by the instructors with the idea of being an easy to follow piece of art for the inexperienced painter. The artwork ranges from landscapes, abstracts and cityscapes, to creative renderings of seafood, animals, iconic buildings and florals.
