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 $25, you get one three-hour art class as well as a glass of wine and snacks at Artascope Studios's Art Night Out (up to an $85 value).
Artascope Studios gives artists a place to meet while exploring painting, printmaking, metalwork, and fiber arts through workshops, parties, and facility memberships. Brush-brandishers convene for a relaxed evening of creativity during a three-hour Art Night Out workshop, where guests sip wine and nibble snacks while assembling collages, dying fabrics, stringing beads, or weaving lanyard eyebrows for the Mona Lisa. Each night focuses on a specific project, and all materials and words of encouragement are included. Students scour a collection of papers, photos, and bits of text during the resin pendant class to mine material for two one-of-a-kind collages before immortalizing the personalized tableaus behind clear resin and attaching them to wearable chains. Crafters assemble colorful pieces of glass with the copper-foil method to form a stained-glass votive that flicks light through a vibrant façade, and classes in precious-metal clay alchemize earthy materials.
Access to three studios as well as discounts on shop items and workshops are available to those with a membership, which Grouponizens receive for $99 (a $120 value).
Artascope offers art classes for adults, including jewelry and metalsmithing, metal clay, stained glass, fused glass, painting, and drawing. Welcoming students of all levels of experience, they also offer membership, which allows you to become part of their creative family. Gather with other artists and enjoy access to five exclusive sessions per week, featuring peer-to-peer demonstrations and support.
