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 $29, you get a kids’ art-class package at Fibonacci School of Art and Design in Yorba Linda (a $188 total value). The package includes:

The experienced instructors at Fibonacci School of Art and Design broaden the artistic minds of youthful artistes with afterschool drawing and painting classes divided by age. During the 60–120 minute sessions, students ages 4–18 craft masterpieces with a variety of media, including pastels, paint, pencils, and pastrami.

Fibo Kids Art Academy
Fibo Kids Art Academy’s instructors teach kids aged 4–18 the finer points of art with the Fibonacci method, crafting individual curricula within a peer setting, bolstered by doses of art history. They tailor the lessons to each student's interests, strengths, and weaknesses, placing kids in small groups for creative interaction with their peers.
To build a foundation for their skills, the instructors engage youngsters in in-depth art-history lessons that expose them to the paintings, drawings, and techniques of both past and current masters from movements such as impressionism and cubism. In addition to year-round afterschool classes, the academy offers one-week intensive summer camps that cover topics such as fashion design, anime and cartooning, and drawing on a sibling's face while he or she sleeps.
