Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: After a lengthy period of reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve. Appreciate the figurative risks and transcendent joys of artistic creativity with today’s Groupon for art classes at Art 'N Oddities on West Lincoln Avenue. Choose from three available classes:
- For $9, you get a goblet-painting class (an $18.50 value).
- For $12, you get a Mirror, Mirror class (a $25 value).
- For $45, you get four drawing classes (a $95 value).
With more than 30 years of experience in illustrating, art teaching, and graphic design, Art 'N Oddities owner Meri Berghauer breathes life into art with unique classes and gallery showings. In the two-hour goblet-painting class, students adorn flasks and flutes with streaks and swirls of color, adding a festive elegance to even the most mysterious, smoke-emitting beverages. Students in the Mirror, Mirror class spend 2.5 hours crafting all-natural mosaics from magazine pictures, photographs, specialty paper, and discarded eviction notices, and then affixing them to a 10-inch square mirror and frame. Or gather inspiration from four consecutive weekly two-hour drawing classes in which students scrawl a variety of lines, 2D and 3D shapes, and objects in perspective using proportion and texture.
All goblets, mirrors, mosaics, photos, and paints are provided for each session. There is no schedule of classes, so students should call to arrange a time. While at the gallery, browse the colorful array of stools, sculptures, and levitating magic markers overseen by the shop’s canine mascot, Merlin.
