Art is in the eye of the beholder, whereas swollen retinas are in the eye of the bee holder. Get soul-stung by provocative and powerful art with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get one workshop from the Ann Arbor Art Center held at the University of Michigan Museum of Art (up to a $48 total value). Today's Groupon includes the price of the workshop (a $35 value for nonmembers, $27 value for members) and the lab fee (a $13 value).
Founded in 1909, the Ann Arbor Art Center is a community-focused visual arts organization showcasing the recent work of emerging and established Michigan artists through evocative exhibits that, like socks, are changed monthly. Choose one from the myriad two- to three-hour workshops offered Fridays and Saturdays at the University of Michigan Museum of Art. A cadre of savvy instructors, all of whom are professional artists themselves, guide curious minds through artistic techniques from antiquated woodblock printing to contemporary clay methods to futuristic tinfoil-hat manufacturing. Learn traditional methods of illustration with a Japanese brush-painting workshop, or wrap fingers' minds around a hunk of polymer clay in a workshop dedicated to Millefiori, a technique in Venetian glass sculpting. More workshops will be added over time.
This Groupon excludes the "Drop In and Draw: Fridays in the Gallery" workshops.
