Creating a 2-D rendition on canvas requires either the ability to masterfully wield a paintbrush or the strength to flatten a fruit bowl. Discover your artful brawn with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a three-hour BYOB painting class at E Gallery Studios (a $70 value).
Gushed about by DailyCandy, E Gallery Studios welcomes artists of all brushstroke ability levels to its aesthetic-expressing BYOB painting classes. Led by an established art instructor, the three-hour painting session guides aspiring Rembrandts through basic painting techniques, teaching proper brush techniques, rudimentary color theory, and how to sedate a canvas if it wakes up before the painting is finished. To help uncork creativity, the studio’s BYOB policy encourages the consumption of snacks and libations during the paint-slinging session. E Gallery provides canvases, paints, and portable muses for each session and recommends wearing casual attire that isn’t afraid of splatters. Multiple classes are held throughout the week, and an on-site custom-framing shop (not included in this Groupon) provides a solid covering for unclothed masterpieces.
