Artists always want muses without realizing they are a big responsibility, demanding regular walks, a ticket to every sunset, and smoothies made of old pastels and Greek yogurt. Cultivate your creativity an easier way with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a three-hour adult painting class for two (a $100 value) at Art By The Glazz in Silver Spring.
Art By The Glazz's weekend-scheduled, artist-led painting classes kindle brush-wielders of any skill level. Bearing the first of two glasses of wine, 21-and-uppers settle behind easels that support 16"x20" blank canvases ripe for realizing 2-D tableaus and 12-D statistical models of beauty. Each session, one featured painting models mid-studio for re-imagining by students, who refer to replicas at their work station for close-up details and a varying perspective. Hors d'oeuvres and 10 hues of quick-drying acrylic paint entice all senses of taste, and aprons encircle waists to protect against stray paints and wine drips. Budding artists capture shapes and shadows under the guidance of pigment professionals, who dole out step-by-step direction for re-imagining the image and rendering elusive unicorns.
Dessert fuels finishing touches and sweetens successes as paintings dry and musicians croon dulcet denouements during solo sets. Congealed masterpieces chaperone each artist home, ready to be mounted on a wall or hung to a chandelier to create an indoor wind chime.
Art By The Glazz
Supplying all materials, Art By The Glazz's artist-led painting sessions kindle creative talents during three-hour classes held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. New artists capture shapes and shadows inspired by a number of pastoral- or wine-themed templates, with step-by-step instruction from pigment professionals. The pigment-shy can embolden themselves with a drink from an onsite cash bar. Aprons protect against stray paint, wine drops, and the tears of fruit trapped in a beautiful but airless eternal present, although Art By The Glazz recommends wearing old clothes. Finished masterpieces chaperone each artist home, ready to be mounted on a wall or hung from the dining-room chandelier. The company also hosts corporate team-building events, small groups, and birthday parties, giving guests an enjoyable ice-breaking activity.
