Artists always want muses without realizing they are a big responsibility, demanding regular walks, a ticket to every sunset, and smoothies made of old pastels and greek yogurt. Cultivate your creativity an easier way with today's Groupon: for $20, you get three drawing or pottery classes at the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center in downtown Cuyahoga Falls (up to a $44 value, including supplies). Groupon holders can choose from the following three classes: Beginning Pottery (Wednesday, 7–9 p.m.), Drawing (all levels) (Monday, 10 a.m.–12:30 p.m.), or General Drawing (Thursday, 7–9:30 p.m.).
Founded in 1934, the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center is a self-supporting nonprofit that offers classes led by experienced artists to pupils of any skill level. Aspiring sculptors can jump hands first into the beginning pottery class, which includes a kiln-firing fee and a half block of clay ready to be deftly shaped into a bowl, mug, or more shapely block of clay. A sketchbook and drawing pencils are bestowed upon all who enter either drawing class, where former tracers will learn the fundamentals of elevating a flat image to realistic three-dimensionality. Classes take place at the center itself, which also contains a first-floor gallery where student and instructor work is proudly displayed–increasing your changes of being romanced by every sexy art thief in the greater Akron area. Check out a complete description of classes before registering.
