Artists always want muses without realizing they are a big responsibility, demanding regular walks, a ticket to every sunset, and smoothies made of old pastels and greek yogurt. Cultivate your creativity an easier way with today's Groupon to Bella ART in Johnston. Choose between the following options:
• For $10, you get up to $25 worth of workshop classes taught by Mary Ann Antonelli.
• For $12, you get $25 worth of rubber stamps, scrapbook materials, and other paper crafting supplies.
Under the watchful eye of Mary Ann Antonelli, an array of workshops at Bella ART nurture inner craft virtuosos with detailed curriculums and instruction. The "Nothin' but Cupcakes" workshop ($25) champions cupcake-themed, all-occasion greeting cards, incorporating techniques such as stamping, paper piercing, and watercoloring, which is when students take a color pencil to a cup of water and color that water. The collaborative, results-focused Bella Card Club meets on the first or third Saturday of every month to inspire fellow crafters in a social setting ($8/month, minimum commitment of three months; students supply most materials).
Featuring an artsy potpourri of rubber stamps, scrapbooking supplies, tools, and more, Bella ART's stockpile of resources can fulfill any craft endeavor. Embark on a stamping spree with scooters ($6.75), matadors ($8.25), and bakery shops ($7.25), or provide an image to customize a stamp (prices start at $7 for a 1/2”x1 1/2” stamp and increase with size). Six yards of checkered ribbons in purple/lime and sage/taupe rolls ($4.50) can decorate a score of greeting cards or fashionably fasten burgers to their accompanying buns. Scrapbookers can collect five-colored felt sheets ($6.25) and acid-free, handcrafted cotton décor canvas ($5.95) to use for documenting a memorable family vacation or a baby’s first Revolutionary War reenactment.
