What You'll Get
Glass provides a resting place for wine, evening wear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today's Groupon for a yearlong membership to the Friendswood Fine Arts Institute on Edgewood. Choose from the following options:
For $10, you get a student-level membership, which grants a 10% discount on art classes, a subscription to exclusive FFAI publications, and members-only benefits and exhibition previews for a single person ages 4 and up (a $30 value).
For $20, you get an artist-level membership, which grants all the benefits of the other levels, plus opportunities to participate in demonstrations and workshops, and an opportunity to exhibit in-studio every 12 months and use the studio at a reduced rate (a $45 value).
For $30, you get a family-level membership, which grants a 10% discount on art classes, a subscription to exclusive FFAI publications, and members-only benefits and exhibitions previews for up to four family members (a $75 value).
The creativity-conductors of Friendswood Fine Arts Institute proffer multilevel membership to all ages, directing a symphony of classes, workshops, and exhibitions for the community's aesthetic edification. Grade-school members fetch a 10% discount on FFAI's series of weeklong summer camps, such as papier-mâché and origami (separated into ages 4–7 and 8 and up). Three member-discounted camps are each offered for one week (9:30 a.m.–11 a.m., 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m., and 1:30 p.m.–3 p.m. daily. Lunch-toting campers may sign up for all three and doodle the week away. Register a developing Dali for the Altered Books class ($75, June 20–24, 9:30 a.m.-11a.m.), where tired tomes are reborn as elegant artwork, or the multifaceted mosaic class ($62, July 5–8, 1:30 p.m.–3 p.m.), where campers piece together a mirror from tile and glass, begetting both an intriguing home decoration and vampire repellent.
In addition to youthful summer camps, Friendswood Fine Arts Institute holds regularly scheduled adult and junior courses throughout the year, also discounted 10% to members. Sponsored events, such as the annual Art in the Park extravaganza, invite guests to enjoy the masterpieces of Mother Nature and man simultaneously. Exhibition openings are provisioned with art from artist-level members, who may apply to exhibit every year, rent the studio at a reduced rate, participate in educational workshops, and stockpile cocktail weenies from gala events in their cheek pouches.
