The great American painting, like the great American novel, is filled with joyous, youthful exuberance and copious amounts of corn syrup. Create a low-fructose masterpiece with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a painting class at A Piece of Work (up to a $40 value).
The spacious art lounge at A Piece of Work allows aspiring Picassos of all skill levels to create one-of-a-kind art in a relaxed social setting. Gather up splatter-worthy clothing, a group of friends, and a favorite liquid libation, and A Piece of Work will supply the canvas, the painting supplies, and two–three hours of friendly instruction. Each session revolves around a specific painting, ranging from the Monet Japanese Bridge class to the Weekend in Paris couple-painting class for spouses who want to evoke the romance of France without the hassle of donning a beret and hunting for heart-shaped baguettes.
Cast eyes upon the calendar to select a preferred painting subject from the landscapes, still lifes, and thought-provoking abstracts available. Regular classes are limited to ages 14 and older, and an adult must accompany those younger than 18 years. Designated family days welcome youth 7 and older as long as they are accompanied by or superglued to an adult.
A Piece of Work
During A Piece of Work’s interactive classes, amateur artists receive the supplies they’ll need before relaxing at an easel with a bottle of wine. Background music fills the air and eclectic paintings splash color across the walls in the studio. A local artist demonstrates how to paint a copy of a masterpiece while the class of students follows along, unleashing their creativity and filling canvases with elegant reproductions of works such as impressionist paintings by Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh. Kids' camps introduce young artists to the famous works of their forebears and impart crucial techniques, while paint-your-pet nights help students re-identify with man’s best friend.
