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.

During classes, the studio’s instructor leads up to 12 students one step at a time through the creation of a painting. The studio provides canvas, paints, brushes, aprons, and easels. Participants must be 21 or older and can bring along additional beverages of their choice.
The Loaded Brush
On a typical afternoon, artist and owner of The Loaded Brush Aaron Ziobrowski brainstorms ideas for new paintings between planning each part of the classes he holds at his BYOB art studio. The prompts he's created for his students included a reproduction of Starry Night, which depicts the dogs playing poker that were erased from the original. Natural light floods into the studio through tall windows, and tarps cover surfaces so that paintbrushes can move without worry. Although aprons are provided, students should wear old clothes or full-body canvases in the event of a paint splatter.
The atmosphere is relaxed (bring your own bottle of wine or buy a glass there) and the instructor is really funny.Darcie A., Yelp, 12/8/12
