What You'll Get


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.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $45 for a BYOB watercolor-painting class with supplies for two (a $92.60 value)
  • $79 for a BYOB watercolor-painting class with supplies for four (a $185.20 value)

Instructor Jo-Ann Lowney coaxes the inner artists out of students on Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. She begins classes by distributing and discussing watercolor kits, which include a hardpan watercolor set, a pad of Strathmore watercolor paper, and a pack of brushes.

Jo-Ann also provides other supplies, such as sketch paper, pencils, and paper towels. Once students are fully equipped, she proceeds with a demonstration of technique before giving students a chance to try out their skills.

East Side Art & ESA Gallery

Before East Side Art was officially founded in 1971, its first inhabitant was the visionary artist Benhardt Michelson, who used the location as an artist community in the 1930s. Today, art instructors and students flock to this oasis of beauty for summer and winter courses in painting, drawing, sculpture, and meditation. After pupils practice in the classroom, they can pop into the art-supply store, where wooden walls and ceilings shelter rows of shiny new supplies. East Side Art also has the ESA Gallery, where artists display Southwest-inspired paintings and prints, as well as sculptures made out of bronze, clay, and chewing gum. Outside, a lush courtyard and water garden provides an idyllic location for poetry readings and performances. While guests lounge in the shade after a hard day's painting, they can catch a glimpse of the Superstition Mountains, where the government stores its good luck.
