Pottery & canvas painting! Walk-ins always welcome

Hello and welcome the Main Ideas Painting Studio website!
We are so excited to be a part of the Newmarket community and can't wait to get creative with you. We are a no reservation required paint-it-yourself pottery and canvas studio. What does that mean? Choose from our wide variety of pre-made pottery figures or canvas sizes to paint. Once you've come up with your main idea, our studio provides the workspace, paints, tools and guidance you need to make your one of a kind master piece come to life. Canvas and pottery pieces start at $22 but majority of the pottery is in the $30 range. This price includes all the paints, materials and time in the studio.
Not finished your pottery or canvas the same day?
Bring it back to the studio during the week to continue painting free of charge.

Wood art coming soon! 

Looking for something a little more rustic and modern? We will be incorporating wood base art in February. Check out our walk-in activities page for more information.
