Art can express a variety of human feelings, from joy at the birth of a child to confusion at the birth of a man-child. Eloquently articulate your emotions with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get a one-year household membership to The Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy (a $45 value). Household memberships—which apply to everyone living under one roof—grant discounts for The Arts Center's art classes and an opportunity to enter artwork in the juried Fence Show.
A renowned exhibitor of contemporary art, The Arts Center cultivates creative potential in adults and children through art classes and events that emphasize hands-on learning. Members receive discounts on arts classes—up to $25 off kids classes—an opportunity to exhibit their art at the annual members’ Fence Show, discounts at local businesses, and the right to sing in the gallery when nobody’s around. Patrons with a taste for food can enroll in courses on the culinary arts, and aspiring artists can transform stuttering line work into fluid brushstrokes via drawing and painting courses.
Woodworking and jewelry-making tutelage can save crafty object makers the trouble of apprenticing themselves to artisan trees and demanding metals. Membership commitments help maintain The Arts Center's free exhibits of contemporary and folk art and support grants given to local cultural organizations and artists.
