Artistic expression can take the form of a vibrant painting, a decapitated sculpture, or front-yard hedges trimmed into the shape of longing. Let creativity blossom with this Groupon.
$17 for a BYOB "Transform Trash Into Art" Class ($40 Value)
Over the course of 2–3 hours, instructor María Albano shares techniques to transform recycled products such as glass and tile into decorative pieces. She provides all art supplies and welcomes students to tote along their own wine and snacks.
Though her artistic skill set runs the gamut from Japanese lacquer painting to woodcarving, María Albano's works are united by a common mission—to give homes a unique warmth and character. With that in mind, she works with her clients to design murals that invigorate blasé walls or divert attention away from magic mirrors' endless limericks, and rejuvenates lackluster furniture with faux finishing techniques. Additionally, Ms. Albano offers year-round classes and workshops that equip budding artists with the knowledge and skills to invigorate their own abodes.
