Paintings are a window into the artist's thoughts, from Pollock's chaotic canvases to the little frowny faces on each star in Starry Night. Paint it out with this Groupon.
$20 for a Three-Hour Painting Class ($40 Value)
In between drinking, socializing, and dancing, RISD graduate Charlie Hall guides students step-by-step through recreating select paintings, including some of Charlie's originals. All supplies, including a canvas, paints, brushes, and aprons, are provided. Charlie teaches his Drink and Dabble courses at three locations, with more to be added later; this Groupon is valid for all present and future locations. Check the calendar for forthcoming sessions.
Charlie Hall's Drink and Dabble
Amidst cocktails and noshing, 35 to 40 students of all skill sets recreate classic works of art within hours at Drink and Dabble under the tutelage of comedian and RISD graduate Charlie Hall or his similarly talented staff members. They supply classes with artistic gear including a blank 16" x 20" stretched canvas, water-based acrylics, and aprons. After the instructor selects the evening’s canvas from Charlie's own collection or sometimes from famous artists such as Vincent van Gogh and his “The Starry Night", they guide the class through every layer step-by-step, circling the room to dispense individual tips. During short breaks, the teacher and their students eat, drink, and make merry along to a soundtrack of party tunes. By class’ end, the acrylics dry into a new version of a priceless canvas that you can take home.
