What You'll Get
Amateur critics often claim that a monkey could paint most modern art, ignorant of the fact that monkeys painted all artwork up to the Renaissance, after which they focused exclusively on conceptual landscape installations called "jungles." Today's Groupon lets you pick up where primates left off. For $20, you get one class of your choice at Art by the Glass (up to a $40 value). Register online for upcoming courses, which are held at the Edgehill Village Art Institute. Art by the Glass will supply all necessary aprons, brushes, paints, and canvas.
While bringing your own paint to one of Art by the Glass's classes is as pointless and unnecessary as male nipples, bringing your own wine or beer to an Art by the Glass class is as liberating as it is legal. Pair your storebought chardonnay with an evening of brush-stroking contemporary paisley trees on Friday, May 14, or get painted away again in margaritaville during the beach-inspired class on Thursday, June 10.
Art by the Glass classes are held in a relaxed studio atmosphere that encourages artists of all skill levels to explore the craggiest crannies of their cranial creativity. On select evenings, Nashville's area artists drop by the studio to instruct classes and share their philosophies on art, life, and the exact point when The Simpsons began to decline in quality. Open classes are constantly updated, and the friendly staffers graciously supplement their schedule to accommodate fast-filling seats. Classes are subject to availability, so call ahead to schedule your session at Art by the Glass.
The website 365 Things To Do In Nashville counts Art by the Glass as something to check out:
- If you are looking for a unique way to spend an evening in Nashville, then Art By The Glass fills that need. Started by Beth Roberts, Art By The Glass is a local art class featuring local artists teaching their style for participants to recreate. You do not need to already know how to paint. All you need is the desire to learn about art. All the materials are included (a canvas, brushes, paint, and apron). The only thing you need to being is a beverage of your choice. Bring your own wine and beer and Beth provides cups, ice, and openers. Beer and wine is also available at the studio for a couple of dollars if you do not bring your own. – 365 Things To Do In Nashville
