Without art, da Vinci never would have been able to draw the Vetruvian Man to illustrate the famed Renaissance jumping-jack dance. Discover your own artistic potential with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get two art classes at Magnolia House Custom Framing in Fuquay-Varina (a $30 value).
Professional artist and class instructor Shirley Hunsberger helps brush wielders of all levels discover the joy of painting through instructive lessons. With the philosophy that art, like alligator wrestling, is learned by just jumping in and doing it, Shirley keeps painters creatively engaged during each two-hour lesson. Create museum- or refrigerator-worthy masterpieces in a medium of your choosing, such as watercolors, pastels, acrylics, or colored pencils. Oils are only permitted for outdoor use, where students may gain inspiration from scenic landscapes and muse-like garden critters. Burgeoning Picassos are encouraged to bring any art supplies they might have, though Shirley can provide materials if needed.
Two-hour classes are available on Thursdays at 2 p.m., 4 p.m., or 6 p.m. for those over 12; one-hour classes at this price can be scheduled on Tuesdays at 2 p.m. or 3 p.m. for younger students. Class sizes are capped at 10 people, allowing for more personal attention and a decreased likelihood of being jabbed by overenthusiastic brushes.
