Artistic expression can take the form of a vibrant painting, a stunning sculpture, or front-yard hedges trimmed into the shape of longing. Let creativity blossom with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a two-hour painting class for two from Art Student Academy in Wake Forest (up to a $60 value). Classes take place at Wake Forest Art & Frame and Twisted Vine Wine Shoppe.

Art Student Academy's instructors equip inquiring minds of all skill levels with the gear and know-how to romp down the variety of artistic avenues on the school's schedule. Paintbrush-wielding professionals elucidate color-swirling capacities in Oil Painting and explore relationships between hues in the Crazy Colors class. Seasonally themed classes trump Grinch tendencies with offerings including Thanksgiving Harvest Bowl and Snow Scenes, which lets students add layers of fresh powder to summery landscapes to please coat-wearing inhabitants. Though refreshments are not included in this Groupon, patrons may sip on a glass of wine to unleash restrained muses in Art + Wine meetings, which take place beneath the Twisted Vine's painting-strewn, exposed-brick walls. At the end of each session, students can take home their creations to gussy up unadorned wall space or cover amateurish paintings of wall safes.

Art Student Academy

Professional artists M. Theresa Brown and Stephen Filarsky channel more than 20 years of experience at the easel to guide students during two-hour art workshops, parties, and afterschool kids’ programs. Workshops elucidate the process of re-creating stunning artworks that depict abstract felines, rustic tobacco barns, and fractals grazing in wintry landscapes. The instructors supply all of the materials and techniques needed to craft masterworks, and encourage participants to hang their take-home paintings in high-traffic hallways. Adult students supply their own beverages at select BYOB classes, and young aesthetes expand their horizons in kids’ classes that encompass drawing, painting, sculpting, and telekinetic printing.

Thank you for the encouragement. Also, the seeing suggested framing helped really see the art as a finished product.

Thank you for a great experience in the Wildflowers and Pet Portrait classes. You taught me a lot in 2 hours and I will be back. I am most appreciative that you encouraged the interest in painting in acrylics and the desire to do it again.

The Artist Steve, makes it fun to learn painting and he is very entertaining. Very down to earth person. He will call personally to cancel if there are not enough students to fill the class for that night. He then brought the picture to the class that we could attend. Made me feel special. Ask him for help and he is right there. Try your hand at your creative side at Art Student Academy!!!
