Like glamorous bird's nests, children's art classes keep fledglings occupied with wood, strings, and copious amounts of glitter. Let artistic whimsy take wing with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a one-year family membership (a $100 value) and three family art buckets (a $15 value) at Greater Reston Arts Center in Reston.
At Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE), art aficionados mingle in a community that fosters a love of visual arts with hands-on education, exhibitions, and special events. A yearlong family membership grants parents access to contemporary-art exhibitions with artist receptions, workshops, special events, and a 10% discount on a kids' single summer art class (20% when registering for multiple classes). Children smear glue, sprinkle glitter, and splatter paint from three brimming art buckets without tattooing your living-room sofa during Explore More, a self-guided exploration of the current exhibition with related art-making activities. Unleash your child's inner Picasso with priority admission to GRACE's summer art programs, which immerse children in puppetry, comic books, and self-portraits ideal for proudly mounting on refrigerators or above castle mantels.
