What You'll Get
Before it was discovered that refrigerators were a safe method for storing food, they mainly functioned as convenient spaces for tacking up kids' hand-drawn pictures of food. Nourish your fridge's artist with today's Groupon to KidzArt in Knightdale. Choose between the following options:
• For $75, you get a birthday-party package for up to 10 children (a $150 value).
• For $100, you get one week of children's summer camp (a $200 value).
KidzArt's art-education programs help boost confidence by exposing children to a variety of mediums and encouraging them to produce their own original artwork. The one-week art camps (held summer weekdays from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., or 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.) help first- through sixth-graders build a foundation of basic drawing skills to create art pieces centered around two possible themes: The KidzArt Animal Style: Where Art Goes Wild! Camp, available through August 19, helps critter-loving hands craft animal-themed artwork, and the Go Wet n Wild with KidzArt! Camp, available through July 29, stokes aquatically inclined imaginations with projects such as designing model water parks or exploring the science of twisty straws. At the end of each morning, parents can return to marvel at their offspring's mini masterpieces. All art supplies are included, allowing students to leave their markers and bulky blocks of marble at home.
Youngsters yearning for their own soiree can get festive with nine of their friends during KidzArt's 90-minute birthday-party package. Party at any chosen location, such as a house, rec room, or the backroom of another birthday party, or use the KidzArt studio location for the birthday bash. Pre-selected themes enhance the atmosphere, and a party specialist provides supplies and art activities to entertain overactive hands and minds.

Don't let the name fool you––KidzArt isn't just for youngsters. The educational center's roaming teachers set up art-education classes and camps at nearly every place you can expect a large gathering: schools, recreation centers, churches, and assisted-living facilities. By presenting students with supplies and easy-to-learn techniques, the instructors hope to provide everyone––no matter how skilled they might be––with an outlet for their creativity.
For children and teens, that means funneling their energy into creating works with a variety of media. KidzArt's method, which is based in education and child development, helps them learn to focus and overcome mistakes with critical thinking and patience. Adults, meanwhile, make time for an artistic escape from their busy days, painting masterpieces while chatting with friends and unwinding with a tasty beverage. And elderly people may discover a new talent when art instructors schedule their diverting activities at senior-living centers.
