Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of self-reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve. Appreciate the figurative risks and transcendent joys of artistic creativity with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour class at Art Rebel in Sherman Oaks (up to a $75 value). All art materials are provided. You'll choose one of the following five classes:
Zen Art ($60 value) opens your creative energy flow by utilizing soothing meditation and offbeat relaxation techniques. Create an artifice that represents your journey into pure inner bliss.
Graffiti Art Rebel 101 ($60 value) will teach students about the history of graffiti, then show artistic rabble-rousers how to use bubble letter, block letters, funk style, and wildstyle. At the end of this class, there will be a live demonstration with spray painting letters on out-of-service blimps.
Yogart ($60 value) is a combination of yoga and art. Students are taught ten yoga poses that release them from the stress of everyday struggles with opening jars of keyboard keys. Afterwards, the class joins super-artistic forces to complete a large group painting.
Classic Rebel ($60 value) is an introductory course for artists looking to focus on fundamentals. Aspiring Raphaels choose between "intro to figure drawing" and "intro to watercolor." In each class, they'll leave with a completed piece, whether it’s an anatomical sketch of Samuel L. Jackson, or a watercolor painting of Samuel L. Jackson playing Scrabble.
Abstract Rebel ($75 value) is ideal for the artist bustling with innovative ideas. This class will teach abstract techniques, helping painters unleash their vision on unsuspecting canvases.
With its clean interior, bright colors, and airy lighting, Art Rebel's studio will allow creativity to run wild, oozing out of students' hands and forming puddles on the floor. Scratch your itch to conceive and create a colorful tour-de-force with today's Groupon to Art Rebel.
Must call ahead to schedule class. 72-hour cancellation policy, or Groupon is forfeited.

"One man's trash is another man's treasure" may be an overused saying to some, but to Art Rebel's crew of painters, it's a mantra. The instructors believe in dreaming up creative solutions to help the environment, and that includes teaching their students how to transform discarded items into masterpieces during eco-art classes. Nontoxic, eco-friendly paints grace paper and canvases in a variety of sessions with different themes, from graffiti-art to cartooning. Elsewhere, beautification meets youth outreach when Art Rebel's team teaches children how to paint public works and encrust their favorite foursquare court with bottle caps.
