Paintings are a window into the artist's thoughts, from Pollock's chaotic canvases to the little frowny faces on each star in Starry Night. Paint it out with this Groupon.

View the schedule of class times. Students in the Painting & Vino classes use acrylics to all work on the same image.
Those in the six-week course work with oils or watercolors, and may bring in a reference photo or use the studio's still life. Classes meet weekly for two and a half hours, and focus on painting's more technical elements, such as composition, drawing, and color theory.
Teller Street Gallery & Studios
"I like to break stuff and glue it onto other stuff. I would like to show you how." This is how mosaic teacher Heather Sarmiento describes her craft, and indeed, every single instructor has a unique story and style. Watercolorist Karen Hill grew up in Utah near the Rocky Mountains, and she's plastered galleries all over her native state with nature-influenced landscapes and still lifes. Oil and watercolor teacher Ed Slack favors nighttime scenes, much like Picasso's lesser-known vampire twin Pete. There's also a pottery teacher, a guitar teacher, and several other painting instructors, each of whom brings his or her own perspective to the classroom. Thanks to this diverse gaggle of artists, the studio's curricula range from casual, single-session Painting & Vino hangouts to technical six-week art courses. The studio also hosts parties and family nights, and its gallery features a diverse array of styles by teachers and other local artists.
