Art imitates life, which is why most paintings depict people standing in line at the supermarket, paying taxes, and doing Pilates. Imagine your own imitation of existence with today's Groupon to ArtWorks on the Square in Fayetteville. Choose from the following options:
- For $35, you get two admissions to a Vino Van Gogh Night class (a $70 value).
- For $35, you get two admissions to a Mom's Night Out class (a $70 value).
- For $35, you get admission for two family members to a Family Art Date workshop (a $70 value).
ArtWorks on the Square inspires the creatively disposed with a variety of classes, workshops, and events. Encourage your inner artisan with a Vino Van Gogh Night class, which offers a night of painting, conversing, and wine drinking from 7 p.m.–9 p.m. on the second Friday of every month. Each vinely inclined class can accommodate up to 12 students and is led by a professional canvas caresser, who issues step-by-step instructions to help keep brush strokes on the straight and narrow and prevent students from accidentally painting a hole in the universe.
Unlike mommy-and-me roller-derby tournaments, Mom's Night Out classes—which are held 7 p.m.–9 p.m. every third Friday of the month and accommodate up to 12 students—give frazzled moms a chance to unwind peacefully. Muse-struck mothers can chuckle with friends, nosh on snacks, and complete a home-décor piece with aid from Kate Hawkins of Poshin Kids.
To mend the rifts wrought by bare-knuckled board-game battles, two-hour Family Art Date workshops––scheduled by appointment on Saturdays––establish a neutral arena for quality time between family members. This Groupon covers admission for two family members, but workshops can accommodate family units of between two and six people, who can choose to individually paint or draw a picture or join forces and collaborate on a 16"x20" piece. All materials are provided for each variety of class.
