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 $25, you get a three-hour adult painting class at Art By The Glazz in Dupont Circle (a $50 value).
Art By The Glazz's artist-led painting sessions kindle brush-wielding talents during three-hour Friday and Sunday classes. 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 tableaux and 12-D statistical models of beauty. Each session, one featured painting is perched mid-studio for reimagining by students, who refer to replicas at their workstation for close-up details and a varying perspective. Budding artists capture shapes and shadows under the guidance of pigment professionals, who give step-by-step direction for translating the image onto canvas. Quick-drying acrylic paint entices creative fingers with realistic or supersaturated color schemes, and aprons encircle waists to protect against stray paint, wine drips, and the tears of fruit trapped in a beautiful but airless eternal present.
Savor desserts as paintings dry, before finished masterpieces chaperone each artist home, ready to be mounted on a wall or hung from a chandelier to create an indoor wind chime.

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.
