Sand castles may crumble, ice sculptures may melt, and beloved child actors will inevitably get old and weird looking, but artwork is forever. Learn how to immortalize your creativity in a less transient form with today's Groupon. For $45, you'll get $150 worth of summertime art instruction at Kansas City Art Institute. The Groupon is good for either the storied, tree-lined main campus or KCAI's Northland Campus for Special Programs in Riverside. Subscribers may purchase up to two Groupons for their own use, or more as gifts. Prices and supply lists vary per class, but most tuition averages $100 to $299 per course.
From book-cover repair to elementary drawing instruction, KCAI's featured classes run the gamut, then paint a gorgeous multimedia mural of themselves running the gamut. The main-campus summer-session courses can teach beginners the basics of oil painting, graphic design, drawing the human form, creating children's books, and more. Newbies can even learn how to use their new digital SLR camera so that it stops taking eerie pictures of the future. Advanced classes include Artistic Architectural Drawing ($169), Botanical Painting Using Digital Photography ($149), and Original Fabric Beads ($139 plus a $20 materials fee). At the Northland Campus, you'll get to try your tentacles at Figure Sculpting in Clay ($139), Introduction to the Digital Camera ($119), and Drawing and Painting Self-Portraits ($129). Summer instruction is available at both locations for weekend, daytime, weekly, and short- and full-term courses. Classes are offered at the high-school level (ages 15 to 18), and adult level (ages 16 and up).
This year, break up the summer's monotony of pink-covered beach reads and lazy river romps by challenging yourself. Unlike competitive eating, art is a skill that can improve with time and be enjoyed at any age. Sign up with a friend, dig up your favorite smock, and get your creativity in shape for bikini season with today's Groupon to the Kansas City Art Institute.
Students may redeem two Groupons on a single class but may not split one Groupon between two classes. Online registration for Groupons begins on April 20 at 10 a.m. and does not include online classes, lab or materials fees, or supplies. Not valid for college credit.
