If it weren’t for a particularly boozy evening during which a wine-fueled Picasso painted the first strokes of accidental Cubist imagery, museums would still be littered with his airbrushed wolf T-shirts. Today's Groupon inspires artwork with a two-hour BYOB painting class for $15 at Corks N Canvas (a $35 value). Corks N Canvas serves sipping artisans at four cozy locations; this Groupon is only valid for Tuesday and Thursday classes.
Offering BYOB art classes in a welcoming, instructor-assisted atmosphere, Corks N Canvas provides a laidback setting for self-expression. Participants will receive step-by-step instruction to craft striking artwork they can take home at the end of the session and place above their mantle, secret trap-door bookcase, or army-men-figurine reenactment of the battle of Pork Chop Hill. Choose among several sessions (click on the address of your chosen location to see a calendar of events) that teach budding strokesters to paint vibrant doggie portraits, landscapes, or abstract-expressionist renditions of the DMV. The creative paintventure may finally spark the dormant artist within that’s been reclusively hiding like Boo Radley since the finger-painting period.
An attuned artistic disposition sheds a new light on everyday experiences, allowing individuals to perceive true beauty when the light shimmers affectingly off a gleaming metal can hoisted by an uncouthly cigarette-smoking garbage man. Call ahead at least 24 hours before the class of your choice and acquire soul-seeking perception and handy brush skills with today’s Groupon. Attendees must be at least 15 years old and accompanied by an adult if under 18.
This Groupon cannot be redeemed for any three-hour classes.
Corks N Canvas has been featured twice on Good Morning New Orleans for painting classes as well as a fundraiser the studio held for Haiti. View the videos here. The paintery has also been recommended by WCities and 150+ Facebook fans:
