Artistic expression can take the form of a vibrant painting, a stunning sculpture, or front-yard hedges trimmed into the shape of longing. Let creativity blossom with today's Groupon: for $149, you get your choice of an eight-week adult art class at Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach (a $300 value).

With more than 100 daytime and evening adult art classes, the instructors at Armory Art Center nurture creative talents in visual arts ranging from drawing and painting to silversmithing. Taught by a mix of artists-in-residence and accomplished instructors, small groups of 5–15 students gather in one of more than a dozen large, well-lit studios for séances with Picasso's cube-shaped ghost. In Photographing the Human Form, students work with a model for portrait and abstract photos to learn about lighting, posing, and exposure control. Introduction to Silversmithing instructs students in the art of jewelry making using tools, torches, polishers, and more, while Figure Painting with Color courses employ contemporary concepts to enrich painting compositions and form, and Beginning Wheel Throwing classes introduce novice students to potter's wheels, where they can spin earthy clay to create vases, mugs, and fierce, revenge-seeking golems. All classes last eight weeks, with this year's fall session beginning October 24, and Groupon customers who opt to take an additional course in the same session will receive a 20% discount on their tuition.

Armory Art Center

Named after the historic art-deco structure rescued from demolition in 1986, the Armory Art Center was established 30 years ago. The Armory is home to many dedicated and talented art instructors who teach students in a wide range of media including ceramics, jewelry, printmaking, and more. The campus sprawls over three buildings is used not only as a school but also as exhibition spaces that display works by students, faculty, and artists from all over the world. The Armory is proud to offer classes to art students of all ages, and since all ages includes the age of 537, Michelangelo is eligible.

Enjoyed the group setting. It was exciting to learn the use of the different tools. It was exciting to see my first finished piece come to life.
