What You'll Get
Art explores the great mysteries of the world, such as the secret of Mona Lisa’s smile and why the Renaissance was swarming with winged babies. Delve into the unknown with today’s Groupon to BKC. Choose from the following options, valid for any three-hour arts workshop:
- For $35, you get workshop admission for one (a $90 value).

BKC’s educators, artists, curators, and creative professionals guide hands-on arts workshops in a teaching space that doubles as a venue for events and exhibits of new work. Workshops include iPhoneography 101, in which students learn to wield their personal smartphones as cameras instead of awkwardly shaped ping-pong paddles, surveying a slew of apps, filters, and settings to find a unique photographic aesthetic. Alternatively, in the Panoramania workshop, landscape photographers build panoramic images from point-and-shoot cameras’ snapshots, incorporating overlap techniques, proper camera orientation, and software tools. Analog artistes can opt for electronics-free workshops such as DIY Printmaking, focused on xerox gum and acrylic transfers that shift copies of drawings, text, or elegantly formatted parking tickets onto art pieces without the aid of a printing press. Students can also opt for other workshops including handmade book production and jewelry assembly and reconstruction.
Though BKC sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
