When a family gathers to jackhammer granite blocks in the living room, it's generally fun but inevitably dusty. Safely create works of art together in a mess-proof session at My Art Workshop in Littleton. Today's Groupon gets you $40 toward art projects, classes, parties, and more for $20. There is no limit to the number of Groupons you may purchase, and they are applicable to impromptu drop-in sessions, classes, or camp.
Originally built to paint racing stripes on zeppelins, the 4,200-square-foot studio is ample room for any desired form of expression. When you enter the spacious imagination conservatory, the friendly staff will guide you through the studio's selection of moldable and colorful materials. The mess-friendly studio lets artists frolic in their natural habitats of tie-dye, pottery, and clay, with a helpful staff at the ready to take care of the artistic aftermath. Play around with squishy yet sophisticated clay molding or form pottery with no extra kiln fees. Future starving artists can practice storing origami fruit in one of many hand-painted boxes or build a mosaic-tile portrait of the unflappable Mr. Peanut. Pottery, clay, wood, and tie-dying prices start at around $8 per project, while mosaic and stepping stones start at $15, which includes all necessary materials and instruction. My Art Workshop does not charge an hourly fee for time spent at the shop, so you're free to concentrate on your clay sculpture of Burton Gilliam for as long as you'd like. The creativity emporium also offers craft-party packages.
Ably wielding a brush, a rubber band, or a glistening mosaic tile can help kids build the confidence and determination that will help them excel in school and beyond. My Art Workshop offers many kid-friendly classes (from $20–$66 per session) to inspire your shy niece or foster your little bro's budding talent. Using an array of hands-on media, children are encouraged to explore their creativity in a safely supervised classroom studio. Stock up on multiple Groupons for multiple sessions or apply them to individual days of upcoming summer camps ($30 per day or $200 for eight camp days). After a few classes at My Art Workshop, your child's handmade gifts will become increasingly useful and more beautiful than the misshapen ashtrays and feathered macaronis of the past.
