Artists are often praised for creating lifelike works of art, which is why they are often disappointed when their painting of a $20 bill isn’t accepted as payment for their dinner tab. Capture life in paint with this Groupon.

$39 for an Art-Lesson Package ($315 Total Value)

  • Two one-hour adult or children’s art lessons, including all supplies except canvases (a $90 value)
  • Two prints of the class-produced artwork (a $100 value)
  • 10 greeting cards featuring the artwork (a $50 value)
  • Artwork displayed with the artist's name or initials on artgalaxy.com for two weeks (a $75 value)

During the one-hour lessons, students splatter and dabble in watercolour, graphite, pen and ink, or acrylic with materials that are all nontoxic and solvent-free. With class sizes no larger than eight, budding artistes receive ample hands-on instruction and attention. Once a masterpiece is completed, Bronte Art Academy transfers the piece to two frameable prints and 10 greeting cards for posterity, and then posts the image on its website for the whole art-loving world to ogle. Adult classes are available every Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and children’s classes are every Monday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Canvases can be brought to class or purchased on-site for an extra $20.

Bronte Art Academy

Founded with the goal of introducing pupils of all ages to the visual arts, Bronte Art Academy coaxes forth the inner Renoirs within all those who enter the studio during a host of hands-on lessons and camps. Under the capable direction of Paul Ross Sandilands, a local portrait artist who has taught at the Ontario College of Art & Design and served as a painting companion to Canadian artist Harold Town, budding masters explore their potential with a variety of artistic media, from watercolour to graphite. Paul also shares his knowledge, techniques, and passion for creative expression during in-studio sessions, where students can create their own take-home masterpieces portraying family, the ocean at sunset, or Roger Clemens as a 19th-century robber baron.
