The Funky Paintbrush's instructors guide students through painting courses that bring latent artistic acumen to life in the form of palpable canvases. Students start by checking the calendar and registering to replicate their favorite picture. Sunset Beach, for example, depicts palm trees standing in silhouette, a scene of redness erupting into blue behind them as the sun slips beneath the ocean's waves. Sporting a black background with bold yellow-orange blotches, Martini Glass can add flair to a basement bar or inspire red Solo cups to dream big.
Upon arrival, students are outfitted in aprons and granted brushes, acrylic paints, easels, and a blank 16"x20" canvas. Instructors then guide them, step by step, through the techniques of painting the evening's featured image, encouraging them to summon their own muse and insert creative flourishes as they see fit.
While brushes busily stroke the canvas, and images solidify in lush color, students can sate their thirst with any beverage they've brought along (beer and wine included). Customers who purchase the three-class pack may attend each individually or invite the other members of their a cappella trio to join them for a single class and create a triptych to represent each singer's vocal range.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning The Funky Paintbrush a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.
Picasso's Corner's imaginative artists offer step-by-step instruction to guide students of all skill levels as they craft 16"x20" paintings. Classes, running either two hours Tuesday-Wednesday or three hours Thursday-Saturday, are scheduled at 7 p.m. and include all necessary materials such as acrylic paint, brushes, high-powered paintball guns, easels, aprons, and canvases. Patrons may use provided bottle openers and cups during class to enjoy self-supplied beer, wine, and snacks. The studio's three-hour open-studio sessions offer a more independent painting session devoid of step-by-step instruction and performance-enhancing hugs.
