What You'll Get
Scientists agree that children are our future, which is why most children are sealed in time capsules with a flashlight and a stack of magazines. Give a child something he or she will really dig with today's Groupon for art instruction during the spring or fall schedules at My Little Red Haus on Montgomery Road. Choose between the following options:

- For $20, you get a 90-minute mixed-media class for children ages 7–12 (a $45 value). Classes run from 4:30–6 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays, March–May and September–December.
The aesthetic champions at My Little Red Haus put the power of paint, canvas, and crafts into tiny, eager hands, earning recognition as The Best Place for Kids by Montgomery's Downtown District for the last two years. Children’s mixed-media courses welcome youngsters to learn and practice using a variety of materials and skills. Diminutive Da Vincis and atomic Andy Warhols will draw, paint, and glue a mixed-media creation to beautify fridges, bedrooms, and adorable interrogation rooms. Younger mini-artists (ages 4–6) begin with the basics, polishing motor skills and exploring crafty knowledge of color, line, textures, and shapes, from the familiar circle to the tricky five-pointed triangle. Older kids (ages 7–12) get pointers on their budding artistic skills.
All artists themselves, My Little Red Haus’s instructors bring to the classroom a wide variety of backgrounds in wrangling beauty and pinning creation to the canvas for a 10 count. In their classes, teachers aim to encourage creativity and instill lifelong appreciation for the arts, giving kids the subsequent potential benefits of improved academic and social development. The school also opens creative opportunities in a host of other courses for children, adults, childlike adults, and man-children. Additional courses include the likes of printmaking, equine art, pottery, sculpture, and more.
