Building a miniature ship inside a bottle is impressive, but not as impressive as forging a giant glass shell around yourself and waiting for your family to come home and find you. Do something crafty with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $17 for a painting event for one, with a take-home painting (a $35 value)
- $34 for a painting event for two, with a take-home painting (a $70 value)
- $65 for a painting event for four, with a take-home painting (a $140 value)
During each two- to three-hour chromatic shindig, participants paint the evening’s chosen piece, such as Chromatic Willow Branches and After The Storm, and get to take their work home. This Groupon is valid for any standard $35 painting event on the calendar, but clients can upgrade to specialty events for a $10-$20 additional fee. Check the calendar for locations in the Twin Cities area.
Art & Elixir
At each Art & Elixir painting event, artists of all skill levels, especially beginners are welcome to explore their creative sides. Instructors guide participants through each event allowing up-and-coming artists their own “intentional composition decisions.” During events, the owners–who are skilled artists themselves–give students step-by-step instructions on how to recreate the evening’s featured painting. But it’s up to the artist to decide how to interpret that work. Using paints, brushes, aprons, canvases, and easels provided by Art & Elixir, guests can paint fields of lavender with bright red acrylic paint. The only rule during these casual two–three hour sessions is that painters (aged 15 and older) enjoy themselves. Events take place at venues such as Lone Oak Grill and Gold Nugget Tavern & Grille, where guests can snack on food and drinks available for purchase.
