Painting with a Twist --Paint with a Purpose
Painting with a Twist (formerly Corks N Canvas) reports, on its website, to be the largest employer of aspiring artists in the country. According to company information, the founders recognized early on that the talents and enthusiasm of the staff were key elements to the success of the product. Their concept has resulted in an innovative approach to teaching and nurturing artists and arts in their company's communities. In five years, Painting with a Twist, along with 265 franchise locations, has produced and owns the copyright to over 3,500 pieces of art.
According to the company, 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. One of their 265 franchise locations is in Lexington, KY.
As part of their ongoing commitment to give back to local communities, Painting with a Twist® sponsors a monthly fund raising event – Painting with a Purpose. Proceeds from Painting with a Purpose events are donated to local non-profit organizations.
Painting with a Twist has donated almost 1 million dollars to local non-profit organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and Multiple Sclerosis. And, in 2015, ACCESS Soup Kitchen and Men's Shelter was one of the recipients of this fundraising partnership! ACCESS Soup Kitchen and Men's Shelter raised $470 in 2015 through the partnership program offered by Painting with a Twist in Lexington, Kentucky.
