Sand castles may crumble, ice sculptures may melt, and beloved child actors will inevitably get old and weird looking, but artwork is forever. Learn how to immortalize your creativity in a less transient form with today's Groupon. For $45, you'll get $150 worth of summertime art instruction at Kansas City Art Institute. The Groupon is good for either the storied, tree-lined main campus or KCAI's Northland Campus for Special Programs in Riverside.

Communiversity developed out of the freethinking student movements in Berkeley, California in the '60s, when All Student Association President Steve Eimer campaigned on a platform of providing accessible education to the entire community. UMKC Communiversity carries on an honorable tradition of shared experience and ideas, offering nearly 1,000 nonacademic, noncredit, pandisciplinary classes each year, suggested and taught by volunteer experts. Courses on parenting, arts and crafts, martial arts, cooking, and social development are all represented on the everchanging course roster, which reverses traditional dynamics by making leaders of students and demanding that essays be written on the sides of pencils. Now helmed by program director and official jazz guitarist Rick Mareske, Communiversity is a part of the UMKC Office of Student Involvement, and remains ever committed to, in the words of Mark Twain, not letting school get in the way of education.
