Though a picture is worth a thousand words, mere photographs of words are considered counterfeit and are, therefore, useless in most picture-word exchanges. Create a work of real value with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a two-hour acrylic painting class at Corks & Colors Studio (a $25 value).
Aspiring artists of every skill level are invited to hone their craft in Corks & Colors' fun, relaxing studio. Seasoned hue handlers will guide pupils through their two-hour session, demonstrating how to paint a complete composition by the end of the class. Guests are encouraged to arrive at the studio 20 minutes early with snacks and beverages of their choice, along with their own cups, plates, or mama birds. Aprons and art materials are provided, but students should wear clothes that don't mind accidentally doubling as a canvas. Reservations are required and can be secured online.
Years ago, Rebecca Barborak went to a BYOB painting class and found that it combined her love for art and red wine. She decided to start her own paint-it-yourself studio, where students of all skill levels bring forth flowers, animals, and landscapes in painting classes in both BYOB and child-friendly varieties. The studio also hosts casual open sessions where visitors can work at their pace on canvas and pottery pieces. Beneath the paintings that festoon the walls and cover the dozens of mysterious safes, private parties and camps can reveal the secrets of painting.
