Creativity can strike at any moment, whether you're near a canvas and brushes or beside a slumbering strongman and many rolls of toilet paper. Learn to recognize opportune moments with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a four-week art class at Braitman Studio, located on Monroe Street (up to a $210 value). Beginner classes include paint, brushes, and canvases. Students in intermediate and advanced classes must supply their own materials. Classes meet once a week for four consecutive weeks.
Led by celebrated artist Andy Braitman, whose artwork has been on display at the Smithsonian and Baltimore’s Charles Museum of Art, the skilled art instructors at Braitman Studio focus on giving students personalized instruction to bolster artistic improvement in a range of styles. Students of all ages and skill sets can fine-tune their painting and drawing mechanics through a number of classes, including beginning painting (a $170 value), contemporary concepts in painting (a $185 value), and creative figure (a $210 value). High-schoolers looking to pursue careers in art can enroll in the teen class (a $170 value) or the teen portfolio class (open only to juniors and seniors), where college-bound students can prepare their portfolios for college applications and their future perfectionist cyborg-professors. Teen artists who have studied at Braitman Studio have gone on to continue their art and design endeavors at prestigious schools, including the Pratt Institute and Parsons The New School of Design.
Along with a broad range of weekly classes, Braitman Studio offers three to five annual workshops and a biannual painting trip abroad where students can gather with other artists to learn from one another, share ideas, and make portraits of their favorite Canadian Prime Ministers out of blades of grass.
