Ancient artists were oft praised for their ability to evoke intense emotions such as joy, awe, and fear during grueling Pictionary tournaments. Draw up a creative game plan with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a 90-minute painting and drawing class at Cre-Arte by Teresa Fernández Art Academy & Studio (a $25 value).
The eponymous Teresa Fernández spreads the creative word to academy attendees, calling on her experience in art history and appreciation at Tecnológico de Monterrey. With separate sessions for kids and adults, 90-minute classes task aspiring artists with such challenges as transforming a pencil or brush into an extension of their arm. Professional artists and educators lead each course, ensuring that all students receive the expert attention needed to improve their technique. All necessary materials, including a canvas, acrylic paints, and brushes, are provided by the academy, sparing students from the timeless artists' quandary of choosing between buying food to eat and buying food to inspire a still life.
