Artistic expression can take the form of a vibrant painting, a stunning sculpture, or front-yard hedges trimmed into the shape of longing. Let creativity blossom with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of arts and crafts projects at Escape 2 Create.
Escape 2 Create indulges the inner talents of artists of all ages and skill levels with a variety of creative mediums. Use glazes to paint portraits of favorite state senators on ceramic plates, bowls, or mugs ($16–$20), which are then kiln-fired and delivered up to a week later, or take home creations the same day by opting for non-food-safe acrylic paints. Glass-fusion projects arrive in 4-inch ($19) or 12-inch ($48) squares as well as 12-inch rounds ($55) to act as clear, cool canvases for layered scenes as expert staff members deliver instructions on how to score and break the glass and use tools. Doodles and designs forged by creative hands are heat-pressed onto children's ($17.50) and adult ($19) T-shirts, with the colorfast and washable transfers allowing for nearly instantaneous wearable T-shirts bearing family portraits or valuable bank information.
