Artistic expression can take the form of a vibrant painting, a stunning sculpture, or front-yard hedges trimmed into the shape of longing. Let creativity blossom with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of art supplies at New Orleans Art Supply.
New Orleans Art Supply ushers artistic visions into the physical plane with a range of professional-grade painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, and mosaic supplies from hard-to-find brands. Artists can wrap paint-spattered paws around a 14-tube watercolor set, which comes with brushes, a palette, a pencil, a sharpener, and an eraser packaged in a handsome wooden case for toting to art class, work, or gravity rehearsals ($24.99). Add elegance to a list of demands for a pet cat with a Sennelier calligraphy set ($63.50), or create a picture of feelings using a drawing kit ($11.99) and a 9”x12” hard-bound sketchbook ($24.80). Housed in the same complex as the New Orleans Conservation Guild, the large, warehouse-like space also sells art books and offers free parking, as well as convenient access to the Bywater bus line.
