Children can reveal an artistic temperament at a young age by spattering ice cream on white tablecloths and denying that a pacifier is a pacifier. Encourage an early brush with greatness with this Groupon.

4Cats Arts Studio
4Cats Arts Studio shares a name with an iconic Barcelona café—Els Quartre Gats. Its European doppelganger was a favourite haunt of Picasso, who would lounge there with friends and colleagues, discussing art. A similarly vibrant artistic community—although for a younger set—thrives at 4Cats, a studio specializing in art classes for kids aged 2–15. In sessions stratified by age, youngsters can sculpt with professional potters’ tools, master advanced drawing techniques, or create mixed-media masterpieces. Alternatively, they can learn about the legacies of artists such as Monet, Matisse, and Marc Chagall, a painter who depicted happy people as floating through the air, rather than just covered in smiling mouths. The studio complements its kids’ courses with one-off workshops, spring-break sessions, and occasional adult classes.
