From the world of dreams come the picturesque smatterings that glaze the canvas of the unconscious mind like acrylic paints on a refrigerator door. Today's side deal encourages your sleeping artist to be a wakeful artist with four art classes at Losina Art Center for $35. Learn in a beautiful, high-ceilinged studio under the master tutelage of master painter Olya Losina as she guides you through four classes: Paparazzi, Painting the Edible, Techniques of Art Critique, and We, The Crowd. Your easel, side table, and setup are all supplied, while paint, brushes, and art supplies are not included. Once you take your first class, the other three must be redeemed within four weeks.

The Losina Art Center has been recently remodeled with abundant lighting and lofty ceilings that create a shadow-free environment and an art-swindler-free workspace. You can cultivate an artist's eye for art while producing your own original works that are eligible for display in Losina's extended gallery and frequent art shows. Classes last three hours, and free parking is available at the front door of the studio, making it easy for the pre-Raphaelite blood in your veins to creatively bubble to the surface. Call in advance with Groupon information to schedule your classes.


Two Google Maps users and one Yelper give Losina Art Center five stars:

  • You do not just take classes here, you take a journey into your potential. Olya [Losina] has a wonderful ability to assess each person individually and provide them with the knowledge to go in the direction they desire. – kathymitchell, Google Maps
  • I've been taking lessons there for 2 years, both at the old site and now at the new Losina Art Center and what I love is that Olya focuses on both technique and creativity... – sonja, Google Maps

Losina Art Center

In 1991, the eponymous founder of Losina Art Center, Olya Losina, moved to La Jolla from Moscow, where she was raised among a vibrant artistic community and served as the art director for the Soviet Union's largest multilingual publishing facility. Losina's fine-art methods, which she honed while obtaining her master's degree at Moscow University, focus on teaching art as a science. While helping her students at the center to work toward mastery of portraiture, the human form, landscapes, and still-life subjects, she performs exercises that aim to reach them on a subconscious level. Together with Losina, the students examine the conscious thoughts that often intrude upon creative expression. They approach the artistic consciousness as a surgeon would approach a brain when trying to dislodge catchy pop tunes from the frontal lobe. With obstructions cleared, pupils find themselves able to work freely and efficiently.

Customer Reviews

I have absolutely no background in art but thought it would be fun to try the drawing class. Had a wonderful instructor and learned so much. Will probably sign up for more classes!
