Creativity can strike at any moment, whether you're near a canvas and brushes or beside a slumbering strongman and many rolls of toilet paper. Learn to recognize opportune moments with today's Groupon: for $150, you get the 90-minute Deluxe Love Art Experience for couples—which includes a canvas, paint, brushes, and two glasses of champagne—at Art Rebel in Sherman Oaks (a $300 value).
The Love Art Experience encourages doe-eyed creativity by secluding couples in the romantic ambience of Art Rebel’s studio, where they’ll work together to transform a blank canvas into a joint masterpiece. Since there's no instructor, there are no rules except to have fun and reenact the longest naval battle in history. Soft music wafts through the air, inspiring lovebirds to reward each other’s great brush strokes with chocolates and champagne. With hushed candlelight and colorful floral arrangements surrounded by eclectic paintings, Art Rebel's studio will give you the perfect venue for romance while letting your creativity run wild, as if you were Van Gogh on two-for-one absinthe night.
"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.
