Before the advent of modern art supplies, brave artistes were forced to steal fangs from saber-toothed cats before they could scrape a single smiley face on charging mammoths. Opt out of perilous art pursuits with today’s Groupon to David Art Center in Metairie. Choose between two art-enhancing options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of art supplies.
- For $25, you get $50 worth of custom framing.
For more than four decades, David Art Center has cultivated creative yearnings with professional custom framing and a deluge of quality art supplies from name brands including Paasche, Winsor & Newton, and Atelier. Wander through the aisles in search of the perfect A-frame easel or a pair of stretched and primed 8"x10" canvases ($3.99), and then burrow through batches of acrylic, watercolor, and oil brushes ($1.99 each), perfect for washing white halls with lustrous new colors. Red, russet, and brunneous rainbows deck the walls of David’s custom-framing section, where pictures of all shapes and sizes can acquire their own individualized border. Though framing prices vary, a 16"x20" painting of a dog mauling a Honda could be framed for $30.
