A painting can transform a commonplace subject into a source of wonder, forever changing the way we look at a starry night or our dog's Friday-night poker games. Learn to paint the world in a different light with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one adult painting class at Art in the Vine in Grapevine (up to a $40 value).
Art in the Vine owner Rebecca Winters leads a variety of adult and children's painting classes for every experience level, teaching fledgling painters the same type of fluid brush strokes and use of evocative colors that she employs in her own floor-to-ceiling murals. Beginner’s classes introduce first-timers to brush wielding with step-by-step instructions on how to draw simple shapes, mix colors, and unveil the secret identity of Roy G. Biv. The three-hour beginner’s Soul Mates class sees artists-in-training painting a pair of spindly deer traipsing through a snow-covered forest; the intermediate-level Fascination class undertakes the jewel-toned portrait of a young woman in a feather-topped hat. Alternatively, advanced students can create a whimsical five-storied construct in Rainbow House.
While peppering canvases with vibrant patterns, patrons can sip soothing libations brought from home, imbibe complimentary coffee, or enjoy soda and bottled water available for purchase. Before transporting their new masterpieces home, students may employ on-site blow-dryers to quick-dry damp spots and prevent colors from running when hung above or inside the fireplace.
