For $30, today's side deal gets you a balloon art class at Higher Hope Balloons ($70 value), located in Arnold.
Professional balloon artist Jason Vaughn's work transcends the usual tricks by crafting aesthetically pleasing twisted balloon-sculptures, having created everything from basketball players to a bouquet of roses. During your 90-minute lesson, you'll learn to twist quality biodegradable balloons into exquisite dogs, giraffes, elephants, flowers, bears, and swords. Twist up a myriad of creations and take home supplies to continue your skills at home, as you'll get a balloon pump, balloons, and an instructional DVD along with the class. Make a splash at the birthday party, wedding, or school event, or host an all-balloon light-saber re-enactment. Classes are open for all ages 5 to 120 and for groups of up to 25 people. Current class openings are available on January 4 with additional slots scheduled as needed.
