Glass provides a resting place for wine, evening wear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today's Groupon to Brushstrokes Studio & Gallery. Choose between the following options:
* For $20, you get $40 worth of paint-your-own-pottery or other craft projects.
* For $30, you get an Introduction to the Pottery Wheel or an Introduction to Fused Glass class (up to a $60 value), or you may apply the Groupon's $60 value toward any class.
With a cornucopia of classes and a shop full of crafty wares, Brushstrokes Studio & Gallery's degreed artists foster enough creative juices to fill a tall glass. Peruse Brushstrokes' open and airy studio to make your own knickknacks such as mosaic projects ($22 for an 8"x8" frame), or select from a variety of paint-your-own pottery items including mugs ($13.50) and dinner plates ($19) that wait to tell the world who is the best grandmother or hot-dog-eating champion. Life-casting services render a plaster cast of little ones' mitts to preserve childhood memories ($30 for a small child's hand).
Patrons can also sip BYOB beverages and learn the ancient art of clay throwing with an Introduction to the Pottery Wheel class. The 2.5-hour session fills noggins with pottery know-how such as clay centering and shaping the malleable muck as it rotates. Up to six students at a time will have the opportunity to create two to three earthenware masterpieces to display at home or bury at UNESCO world Heritage sites. Alternatively, the Introduction to Fused Glass class instructs students on the finer points of conjoining separate pieces of glass to assemble colorful, kaleidoscopic masterpieces.
