Art School # 99 - North Allston: $99 for a Full Course of Art Classes at Art School # 99 ($200 Value)

Creating a 2-D rendition on canvas requires either the ability to masterfully wield a paintbrush or the strength to flatten a fruit bowl. Discover your artful brawn with today's Groupon: for $99, you get one art course at Art School # 99 in Allston (a $200 value).

Boasting both classic and conceptual training, experienced artist Alexandra Rozenman leads three different courses designed to bring out the inner creator in students of all skill levels. Budding painters can start with a Can I Paint Like That? course, where Alexandra delves into the mystique and technique of great artists to show students how they utilized color, light, space, and paintbrushes made out of deflated basketballs. Alternatively, Art Lab workshops inspire painters with five weeks of discussions and thought-provoking readings alongside plenty of time for painting. Taking artists far beyond their comfort zones and Georges Seurat connect-the-dots coloring books, the month-long, specially created art program lets students blaze their own paint trail based on a custom schedule and curriculum tailored to goals, interests, and abilities.

Art School # 99

Alexandra Rozenman's career has taken her from the Soviet underground to a prominent place among some of America's most revered cultural institutions. Born in Moscow, she found her footing alongside now-famous dissident artists before political pressures brought her to the United States as a refugee in the late 1980s. From that point on, her surrealistic, multilayered paintings have only gained momentum, taking her from an MFA at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts to international exhibitions—including an upcoming exhibit at the Multicultural Arts Center in Cambridge—to a fellowship with the MacDowell Colony, an illustrious group of bohemians whose members have included James Baldwin and Michael Chabon.

Having risked everything to follow her own politically conscious muse, Rozenman knows how important self-expression is to every artist. Accordingly, her classes at Art School # 99 arm students with the technical skills and supportive environment they need to bring their vision to life and the authority they need to keep it from running away and playing pranks on the mayor. Programs often reach beyond the canvas to embrace the artist as a whole person: classes might incorporate readings, movies, or collage techniques, and cultivate salon-style inspiration with French-impressionist-appropriate wine or russian tea.

Very mellow. Alexandra is great, and gives you as much or as little attention as you please. You can also choose what you want to paint.

Alexandra was very kind, and a knowledgeable and effective teacher. It'd be nice to attend an ongoing painting class with her if you're looking for something longer term. Had a lot of fun. It's also a really cool space!
