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.

Customer Reviews

Very friendly environment and informative
Camille G. · December 12, 2011
Alex is an amazing instructor, and I love the space and the course. She was able to work with my schedule, and design the course with what I wanted to learn. I took the beginner's painting class for three sessions. I learned so much in just three classes. Plus she charges only $5 for materials for each class if you don't have your own! This is an amazing deal for people looking to brush up on a technique, who want to relax and learn some drawing basica as well as paint something, and/or for those who have never painted before. I would definitely recommend to anyone!

Alexandra was excellent! From helping me find a workshop that worked for our schedule all the way down to the workshop itself, Alexandra is amazing. I look forward to going back soon.
