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.

At the beginning of each session, the instructor will demonstrate painting techniques in front of the class. Then, students will choose from a variety of images and set to work using professional-grade brushes and water-soluble oil paints to cover 11”x14” artist-grade canvas panels that they’ll take home.
The Martinsville Studio
Like many artists, Jamie Lindholm explored a few routes before answering her true calling. Although she’d been painting her entire life, she acquired her first college degree in marketing and management. Shortly after, she started training with artists including David Leffel, presidential portrait painter Everett Raymond Kinstler, and photorealist Robert Neffson, all masters who helped hone her ability to capture life on canvas.
At her own studio in Martinsville, Lindholm takes on the role of instructor. Her classes include foundational studies in drawing and painting as well as BYOB sessions in which students can unleash their artistic potential alongside a glass of wine or vintage tempera paint. She conceives of her studio as a traditional atelier where students and the artists who share her space through the Open Easel Program can feel inspired and at home.
