Artistic expression can take the form of a vibrant painting, a stunning sculpture, or front-yard hedges trimmed into the shape of longing. Let creativity blossom with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get two art classes at Creativity Art Studio in Orem (a $40 value). Classes are held on Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. for youths (age 6–14) and at 6:30 p.m. for adults (ages 15+). All materials are included.
Instructors at Creativity Art Studio shepherd each student toward drawing and painting proficiency during one-hour sessions. Each Wednesday, apprentices age 6–14 swap out their school pencils for charcoal sticks, pastels, or paintbrushes to create fridge-worthy masterworks, and the 15-and-older group can wield a more advanced skill set to sketch portraits, paint landscapes, or capture the way light and shadow play over a bowl of chained killer tomatoes. As students progress over the course of several sessions, they may also splash into watercolors or acrylics under the guidance of a knowledgeable teacher.
Creativity Art Studio’s bright orange and yellow walls embrace light streaming from hanging bulbs and large front windows. Instructors may add additional sessions to the class schedule depending on client demand and a judge’s ruling on the legality of Wednesday’s membership in the week.
Creativity Art Studio
Walking into Creativity Art Studio is like walking into a sunset. Eyes fill with the golden and maroon hues of the walls, which foster tranquility in the mind so that students can explore their thoughts and express their dreams. Amid the colors, shelves of ceramics and painting supplies equip artists-in-training before they sit and let their imaginations travel across their chosen canvas with the guidance of a creative and adept staff.
Experienced creators can spread their wings solo, while those dipping their toes into artistic waters for the first time can use a stock of stencils. After each masterpiece has been touched up with its final details, staff experts guide patrons through the finishing process, whether that be waiting for the paint to dry or determining the best way to sneak sculptures into a museum display. Ceramic pieces stay behind for a glaze and stint in the studio's kiln, to ensure a lustrous piece that can be picked up roughly a week later.
