What You'll Get


Artistic expression can take the form of a vibrant painting, a stunning sculpture, or front-yard hedges trimmed into the shape of longing. Let creativity blossom with today's Groupon to the Brooklyn Artists Gym. Choose from the following options:

  • For $29, you get one three- to four-hour workshop for one (a $60 value).
  • For $49, you get one three- to four-hour workshop for two (a $120 value).
  • For $70, you get a one-month open-studio membership (a $199 value).

The recently renovated atelier at Brooklyn Artists Gym nurtures creative impulses with shared workspace and a colorful array of classes. Small groups of up to 10 gather for two-dimensional instruction in traditional substances such as watercolor, oil, and charcoal, or explorations in mixed-media projects to create digital art that doesn't involve mosaics of HAL. Delve into artful replication with DIY Silkscreening intensives, whose $40 additional materials fee covers each student's own reusable screen, squeegee, and other sundries to extend creation ad infinitum. Hands may use the shop's machines to develop a vocabulary of basic stitches and techniques during Sewing 101, or employ nimble fingers to craft a diary that fits perfectly into their palms with Intro to Book Making.

An open-studio membership includes anytime access to the 4,000-square-foot studio, as well as a private locker for supplies and an area to dry canvases that work up a sweat after sparring with muses. Artists hone their vision or seek inspiration from live models that grace figure-drawing sessions every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, and share their aesthetic by organizing shows at BAG's adjacent gallery.

About Trestle Gallery


It can be hard for an artist to get their art in front of collectors, gallery owners, and influential people in the art world, which is why Trestle Gallery can be such a valuable resource. The nonprofit contemporary art space in Gowanus, Brooklyn, showcases new works by under-represented artists, giving them the chance to get some necessary exposure without hanging their paintings on the backs of city buses.

Trestle not only represents burgeoning artists, but also offers them professional-development services. These include monthly critiques where artists give and receive feedback and panel discussions with established artists and art-world professionals. Those who want more instruction can participate in Trestle’s community classes to learn new artistic techniques or meet a mentor.
