Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of self-reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve. Appreciate transcendent joys of artistic creativity without starving with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a two-hour painting class (a $35 value) at either of Bottles ‘n Brushes' locations in Mt. Pleasant or Summerville.
To create a casual, friendly atmosphere, Bottles 'n Brushes allows students to sip wines and beers they've brought to class, or bought from the on-site bar, as they deftly wield their brushes. Choose an evening event from the Summerville or Mt. Pleasant location schedules and use acrylic paints to bring to life a bright, contemporary masterpiece. Classes are taught by a professional artist in an easy to follow, step-by-step format. Bottles ‘n Brushes provides all art materials, as well as corkscrews and cups. After customers are finished painting and partying, they’ll have a handcrafted piece of art suitable for framing above the fireplace or nailing onto the fridge.
Unlike brainstorming nicknames or writing in cursive, channeling dormant creativity to paint a masterpiece is remarkably easy to do. Two-hour classes are offered at both locations Monday through Thursday at 6:30 p.m. Groupon customers may upgrade to a three-hour Friday or Saturday class (a $45 value). Brush up on painting skills with today’s heavily pigmented Groupon.
Wine and Design
The faculty of local artists at Wine and Design in Summerville helps students create works of art in a social, supportive setting with lessons designed for people with no artistic experience. After uncorking bottles of wine and kegs of paint, budding artists spend two hours imitating pros stroke for stroke as they transform canvases into paintings of colorful landscapes and vibrant still lifes. Guests of any experience level are welcome and Wine and Design provides all necessary materials, including paint, brushes, and corkscrews.
In addition to regular classes, Wine and Design offers private parties and Art Buzz summer camp for kids at Summerville lcoation. In an effort to paint it forward Summerville also donates funds to causes, such as Relay For Life and the March of Dimes.
