What You'll Get
Creating a mosaic out of broken glass turns trash into art, much like compiling a rubber-band ball or throwing rotten fruit at the television. Reuse and rearrange with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of art supplies at National Art & Hobby.
National Art & Hobby arms aspiring artists with fine-art supplies, jewelry-making materials, and hobby and crafting products. Shoppers can purchase a 12”x16” watercolor pad for colorful portraits and landscapes ($26.75) or a 5-ounce tube of Golden acrylic to paint impressive GPAs across college cardigans in large, shiny letters ($15). A natural oil-paint cleaner and conditioner ($18.99) grooms paintbrush hairs or mustaches, and a Montana Gold acrylic spray turns tired convertibles into celestial chariots. A Speedball No. 1 lino-cutter assortment ($13.79) cuts cardboard, paper, or styrofoam materials for precise designs. National Art & Hobby also stocks a variety of supplies for Mardi Gras–costume creation, listing local Mardi Gras Indians among its frequent clientele.
