Sculptures’ permanence allows future generations to study ancient archetypes of beauty or marvel at ancestors’ apparent reverence for Mr. Snuffleupagus. Stun the ages with today's Groupon: for $137, you get a six-week sculpture class at Murphy's Studio (a $275 value).

Carole Murphy, whose inventive works populate galleries across the country, helps whittle pupils’ raw creativity into confident artistry. The studio's confines brim with a joyful profusion of paintings, tools, and muses disguised as furniture as members of intimate 10-student classes—held on Mondays at 10 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., Thursdays at 6:30 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m.—pursue their unique imaginative visions. Unhurriedly sculpt an easy-to-carve, porous block of aerated cement ($15; not included in Groupon) into a bust of Wallace Shawn as Carole draws upon 15 years of teaching experience to gently steer aesthetic endeavors. Student works are occasionally showcased in local galleries for their sweeping grace or surprising foray into four dimensions.

Murphy’s Studio

As the middle child in a large family of lawyers, it took Carole Murphy 40 years to embrace her artistic destiny. Now nearly 20 years after her first exhibition at the Robert Paul Gallery in Burlington, Vermont, Murphy’s works have been seen in more than two dozen galleries, museums, and art centers. An established expert in the field, Carole contributed a spotlight piece on her specialty medium, aerated cement, in a 2007 issue of Sculpture Journal, and her 15 years of teaching experience ensure classes engage participants with student-designed projects and individualized attention.

Customer Reviews

Attentive and professional instruction. I am not artistic in the least and was given a coupon for these lessons. It was a pleasure to find such a relaxed atmosphere. This was a lot of fun.
