Art can express a variety of human feelings, from joy at the birth of a child to confusion at the birth of a man-child. Eloquently articulate your emotions with today's Groupon to Kimberly Hardin Art School in Aptos. Choose between the following options:
- For $87, you get a six-week adult art class (a $175 value). Adult art classes run each Wednesday evening from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
- For $42, you get a month of children's art classes (an $85 value). Children's classes are divided by age group, with multiple classes per day Monday–Friday during the school year and one class per day during summer sessions in June and July.
Founded in 1997, Kimberly Hardin Art School fills fingers with brushes, pens, and airbrushes while simultaneously filling noggins with technical and artistic know-how. Classes frequently take advantage of the school's oceanside location across from Rio del Mar beach, where students can meditate on the color of water using watercolors and learn to ward off advancing pelicans with expressionist paintings of sharks. Dive deep into the bohemian life with a theme night, occupying one class period per six-week session. Theme night allows students to step into the psyche of a preselected artist without the prohibitive expense of obtaining a quantum-leap machine, and it fills bellies with optional dinner and wine ($20) from the artist's home country. Youth classes introduce young artistes to canvasses other than living-room walls and provide them with the accouterments to produce a self-portrait or recreate master works with materials such as watercolors, acrylic paints, pastels, and other mixed media.
