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, good for art supplies or custom framing at Jerry's Artarama. Today’s Groupon must be used at Jerry’s brick-and-mortar Austin store, located directly off Interstate 35 just east of the Highland Mall. Choose from the following artful options:
- $19 for $45 worth of art supplies
- $39 for $100 worth of custom framing
One of Central Texas’ largest art-supply stores, Jerry’s stocks its brightly colored 16,000-square-foot creative haven with premium and hard-to-find materials for artists in virtually every medium. Enjoy all of turpentine’s paint-thinning properties without risking an unpleasant nostril mugging with Weber odorless Turpenoid ($19.99/gallon), or give drab standardized tests a much-needed splash of color with a set of 12 Prismacolor colored pencils ($10.56). Winton oil paints ($2.82 for 37 ml) turn blank canvasses into color-dappled eye magnets, while 11”x14” Canson Biggie sketch pads ($5.90) and Strathmore 400 series 9”x12” drawing pads ($2.99) serve as convenient alternatives to doodling on the faces of fellow commuters. Those who’ve already completed their magnum opus oil painting, prize-winning watercolor, or blue-ribbon macaroni mosaic can call upon Jerry’s friendly framers to enshrine it in its own custom casing—concocting the perfect wall-mounted art holder from your choice of an encyclopedic array of molding materials and other options.
Though Jerry's currently offers a deal for 45–55% off 1–3 framing projects through October 31, this Groupon can still potentially save you more money and is valid longer.
More than 50 Yelpers give Jerry's Artarama a four-star average:
