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.

Alternatively, Fine-Arts Skills campers learn more in-depth techniques in painting, drawing, sketching, and other areas. This camp takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday–Friday. Customers can choose between the July 8–12 and July 29–August 2 sessions. FR Designs supplies all materials needed for both camps.
Local artist Frances Rauch has been using various faux-painting techniques to decorate homes and businesses since 1990. She and the rest of the FR Designs crew spice up all things plain—bare walls become bucolic landscapes, for example, and regular white columns slip into beautifully marbled skins. Fran and company also teach budding artists some tools of the trade. In the center’s BYOB Sip & Paint classes, groups gather to share bottles of wine while recreating dynamic images on canvas. More advanced classes allow students with some experience to further hone their brush-holding techniques. The studio also offers kids' art camps, designed to develop and maximize young creative imagination.
