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 $25, you get a two-hour BYOB painting class for two at Art-by-You! in Depew (a $50 value).
Local artist and certified art teacher John Flanagan paints students’ brain canvases during Art-by-You! sessions with step-by-step instructions on acrylic-masterpiece creation. During the two-hour classes, painting pairs receive the physical and mental tools to brush a chromatic magnum opus depicting verdant landscapes, flowing tropical waterfalls, or a favorite page from the dictionary.
The studio supplies 16'x20' canvases, acrylic paints, brushes, and aprons, and creating couples can tote along favorite beverages to slurp down during the class. A weekly calendar of themed classes challenges doodling duos to complete personalized renditions of works by famous painters such as Picasso and van Gogh. Budding artists can carry home creations at the end of each session for proud display above a mantle or in front of a boring newscast.
