Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of self-reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve. Appreciate the figurative risks and transcendent joys of artistic creativity with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a two-hour painting class (a $40 value) at jenniferharwellart, an art gallery located downtown at 6th and 19th.
Run by master picturemaker Jennifer Harwell, a self-taught painter popular for her angel series, jenniferharwellart's weekly classes help sprouting artists' talents grow and blossom. In a laid-back, relaxed setting, students unleash their furor artisticus upon a 16"x20" canvas while the swaddling wraps of a smock-frock protect their soft innards. Usually the gallery provides wine and snacks in addition to all the necessary artistic supplies. Students get to keep their magnum opus once their paint guns stop smoking.
Check the calendar for class schedules, make a reservation, and embark on an artistic journey that could mean the launch of your new career, or at least a new covering for holes in the wall from throwing hard biscuits.
