About The Creatively Uncorked Staff
Creatively Uncorked was started in January 2014 by Shanna Cramer as a way to bring the paint and sip concept to the Fargo-Moorhead area. Creatively Uncorked opened its first studio in the Moorhead Center Mall in January 2015, then moved to their current location in West Fargo in June 2016. The new downtown Fargo location opened in March 2017. What started as a paint and sip concept now offers a variety of crafting classes and special events, in addition to canvas painting. Creatively Uncorked now has several artists, two studios, hundreds of paintings, and continually offers fun events within a 100-mile radius of Fargo, ND.
President/ArtistI’m so excited to bring the paint and sip experience to Fargo-Moorhead and the surrounding area! Creatively Uncorked is the product of combined passions. With a background in art, teaching, and wine appreciation (wink), it is proving to be the perfect fit. The whole idea is to provide an opportunity for people to relax, have some laughs and get creative with their friends and co-workers. It’s fun art, not fine art, so whether you’re the artistic type or can’t draw a stick figure, you will have a good time. We’ll be offering scheduled events at our West Fargo and downtown Fargo studios, regular events in Grand Forks, Fergus Falls and Detroit Lakes, as well as booking private parties and corporate team building events. No set-up, no clean-up. Just sit down to your canvas with a drink, and paint your masterpiece!
I’m currently a Junior at Moorhead State University majoring in Studio Art with an emphasis in Sculpture. I’m originally from Bemidji, Minnesota, where I attended charter schools during the entirety of my education. From a very young age, I’ve always been interested in creativity and imagination, never letting go of an opportunity where I could express myself in a creative pursuit! I aspire to be a Professor of The Arts so I can share my passion with students and faculty alike. I believe there is a profound spirituality within art where self-expression is often ignited and I am excited to continue being inspired every day and pursuing my passion!
I never saw myself as a painter, though I’ve always been an artist. I started with music in various forms from Rap into Progressive Metal. I was the guy who roamed the halls with his guitar in school, high-fiving everyone but couldn’t be bothered while playing. Since starting at Creatively Uncorked my entire visual perception of the world has changed, and I just love the people so much. I had to start painting! I’m only a few steps ahead of the newbies and I pride myself on uncorking creatively with the “least-artistic” people I’ve found.
Have trouble loosening up? I’m your man. Love partying and getting wild? I’m your man. Longing to express yourself? Look no further. I look forward to meeting you.

I’m currently a junior at MSUM pursuing a degree in art education and ceramics. 3D art is my first love, but I love art in all of its many forms. I was born and raised in the Fargo-Moorhead area and I love seeing the positive attitudes and support of the arts that this area provides. The art enthusiasts in our community give our future hope, and I’m excited to be a part of that movement at Creatively Uncorked!
