A remarkable painting can transport viewers to another world, making art classes much more cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing than commercial space shuttles. Activate your own acrylic portal with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get an 11"x14" canvas-painting class at Ginn’s Art and the Color Palette Studio in Jasper (a $25 value).
With more than 15 years of teaching experience, Ginny Roberts acquaints brush-slingers of all ages and experience levels with their creative sides during painting classes at the Color Palette Studio inside Bama Girlz Kreations. During sessions, held three or four times a week, students conquer the basics of color-coating a seminal masterwork and rotating wrist joints a full 360 degrees under the guidance of Ginny’s stroke-by-stroke instruction. The studio endows each apprentice with all the necessary supplies and an 11"x14" canvas, permitting artful daubers to fill in the blanks of a presketched image with their hues of choice. Each session focuses on a specific pictorial subject, which could be anything from a simple landscape scene to a detailed topographical map of the ocean floor and its trenches. Classes last two–three hours, with breaks for relieving strained palette-toting arms.
