What You'll Get
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 $20, you get an art-class package for two at Express Yourself Studios in Maplewood, held the first and third Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. (a $50 value). The class-package includes:
- Admission for two to two-hour Cocktails & Canvas guided art class
- Art supplies
- Requisite paper goods
- Treats or snacks
Led by owner Simone Anthony-Brown, the talented staff at Express Yourself Studios guides students toward completion of their own color-splashed canvases in a fun, social setting. During each Cocktails & Canvas evening, groups of up to 20 brush wielders convene in the brightly colored studio to create personal masterpieces using a specific piece of inspiration, which may include anything from Tim Nyberg's abstracts to Monet's scandalous still lifes of naked fruit. Picassos-in-training gather at individual easels on a long, central table, chatting and noshing on treats and snacks as they create their frame-ready works with studio-provided supplies and gentle tips and tricks from their friendly brushstroke savant.
The BYOB classes welcome student-provided bottles of wine or other beverages, making this deal a great option for a girls' night out, bachelorette party, or a romantic date with Thomas Crown. Completed artwork from students and professionals line the studio's vivid green walls, providing added inspiration, and an impromptu color-blindness test for would-be artisans.
