What You'll Get
Artists always want muses without realizing they are a big responsibility, demanding regular walks, a ticket to every sunset, and smoothies made of old pastels and Greek yogurt. Cultivate your creativity the easier way with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get $100 toward any creative class or course at 3rd Ward in Williamsburg.
At 3rd Ward, Brooklyn’s brightest and boldest creative professionals come together for an array of gallery openings, performances, and other showcases of right-brain brilliance. The center hosts more than 100 classes and courses in a myriad of mediums, with curriculum available for budding Botticellis, Brontës, and Brett Ratners alike. Push your picture taker to new artistic heights with Learn Your Digital Camera ($65 for non-members), give lonely members of the Apoidea family a couch to crash on with Rooftop Beekeeping 101 ($100 for non-members), or turn your next tailgate party into a tasting with the beer brewing class ($35 for non-members, with no additional materials fee). Other classes cover writing, sculpture, filmmaking, bicycle mechanics, and how to make a piñata with scrap metal, among numerous other topics. The value of this Groupon can be applied toward the value of 3rd Ward’s more intensive courses, as well.
Class sizes at 3rd Ward are kept to a maximum of 12 students, fostering a one-on-one interaction between teacher and teachee that’s absent from the city’s mass public workshops on introspective sewing. Instructors are professional artists, bringing real-world experience and the newest tricks of their respective trades to tutorials.
