Artists always want muses without realizing they are a big responsibility, demanding regular walks, a ticket to every sunset, and smoothies made of old pastels and Greek yogurt. Cultivate your creativity an easier way with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of art materials at Gomez Art Supply, located in the heart of downtown.
The brainchild of art enthusiast and educator Peggy Gomez, this cute creativity hub matches its abundance of materials with a wealth of helpful service to help community members make masterpieces worthy of a museum's fridge. The shelves are stocked with supplies suited for a variety of art-making methods, including traditional black and white photography, printmaking, drawing, acrylic and oil painting, and eyeball extraction. If you already have a plan for a project knocking at your noggin, this Groupon will grant it the wares needed for its triumphant escape. Or, if your artistic vision is less defined, take your time perusing the aisles until a display, the way the light cascades down a display, or the cold breath of Andy Warhol's spirit on your neck rouses some inspiration.
Because Gomez Art Supply is run by local artists and for local artists, it is infused with friendly vibes, and you don't need a great long-distance plan to feel comfortable asking a question about linseed oil or telling a lengthy joke about minimalism. Stop in to stock up for an upcoming art project, or just to chat with a staff member about methods as you develop a design.
