Art can express a variety of human feelings, from joy at the birth of a child to confusion at the birth of a man-child. Eloquently articulate your emotions with today's Groupon to Access Arts on McAlester Street. Choose between the following options:
- For $55, you get a six-week adult art class (up to a $125 value).
- For $35, you get a six-week children's pottery or drawing class (up to a $75 value). Children under age 6 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Adults may purchase this option for themselves and purchase one as a gift for their child in order to attend the class together.
A nonprofit dedicated to making art accessible to people of all abilities, ages, and backgrounds, Access Art enriches its pupils and the surrounding community with a large selection of creatively oriented classes. With six-week adult courses in artistic endeavors including pottery, jewelry, sculpture, and more, students can study the obscure language of muses or learn to throw a pot without breaking the smaller, more fragile pot directly in front of them. Similar study programs designed for children focus on drawing or pottery, helping turn tots into clay mavens and the kitchen fridge into a miniature, lunchmeat-filled Louvre. Adult classes meet for 2–2.5 hours one night a week, and children’s classes meet for 1–1.5 one night a week. The next available session of classes begins the week of March 14.
Access Arts proves its dedication to service with a number of outreach programs, collaborating with other nonprofits and schools to bring valuable art education to students with disabilities or from low-income backgrounds. It also offers classes for special-needs children and adults, and this Groupon can be used toward those as well.
Access Arts, a community-focused nonprofit, welcomes children and adults of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to discover the joy of artistic creation with 200 annual classes, earning attention from the Missourian for its work with students with special needs. During six-week sessions, experienced, compassionate instructors guide learning hands through pottery building, weaving, writing stories, and drawing, and help budding Michelangelos discover if their muses call out to them via telephone or semaphore. Classes for pupils with special needs support both children and adults with extra assistance as they knead clay or dabble in mixed media, and Access Arts’ fee waivers and scholarships enable learners from all income levels to tap into inspiration. Founded in 1971 to widen opportunities for the disabled, Access Arts is now in its fifth decade of enriching the Columbia area with classes and outreach programs that remind people that paintbrushes can be used for more than coloring dead plants a lively shade of green at the end of housesitting stints.
