My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the class and the instructor. Had we not moved, we would definitely be continuing and may in spite of the distance. Super talented instructor and gifted in her ability to work with children.

I wish she would have been able to teach my daughter the techniques in painting. She knew on the 1st day that my daughter draws fine. She just didn't know how to paint the picture well and I wished it was more of that.

My son really enjoyed the class, unfortunately, the location is a bit far for us, will consider in the future when our weekend schedule opens up.

What You'll Get


Children can reveal an artistic temperament at a young age by spattering ice cream on white tablecloths and denying that a pacifier is a pacifier. Encourage an early brush with greatness with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $45 for a four-week 60-minute art class for kids aged 4–7 (a $150 value)
  • $69 for a four-week 90-minute art class for kids aged 8 and older (a $200 value)

During both classes, an MFA instructor acquaints young aesthetes with the fundamentals of a strong work of art, such as compositional balance, depth, and perspective. All materials are included, so kids should prepare for flights of inspiration by dressing in clothes they don’t mind getting paint splatters on.

Classes for kids aged 4–7 last for one hour, and meet on four consecutive Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. or 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., or four consecutive Mondays or Wednesdays from 4:30: p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Classes for kids aged 8 and older span 90 minutes, convening on Sundays from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., or Tuesdays or Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. More classes may be added depending on demand, so parents are encouraged to call the studio for the most up-to-date information.

Living Art Studio

Marina Bichinsky knows the importance of art education firsthand. She had her first art lesson at age 5, and, though it may have seemed like a childhood hobby at the time, art paved the road for her career path, a road that had perfectly straight yellow lines thanks to her artistic skill. She studied architecture in college, earned her doctorate in visual communications, and, today, funnels these skills into her position as director of Living Art Studio. Here, she teaches students of all ages and skill levels enlisted in the studio’s classes, in which instructors trained by Marina teach realist painting techniques.

The team generally starts first-time artists off with classes that teach gesture and proportion before graduating them to charcoal-drawing classes, color study, and, finally, painting still lifes and figures. For their younger crowd, instructors lead Mommy & Me classes, during which 2.5- to 5-year-olds learn techniques amenable to their age, such as how to turn baby-food splats on highchair trays into impressionist opuses that suggest Monet and Renoir, but with an underlying current of originality in the vein of a Pissarro. The school also offers a specialty curriculum for adults who are seeking further education in areas such as fashion design, photography, and advertising.
