Young artists are always pestering their parents for muses without realizing that they are a big responsibility, demanding regular walks, a ticket to every sunset, and smoothies made of oil pastels and greek yogurt. Cultivate your child's creativity an easier way with today's Groupon: for $40, you get five weeks of children's art classes at Noah's Art (up to a $95 value, including the $20 registration and supply fee).
The masterminds behind Noah's Art believe that inside each child lays the soul of an artist whose talents must be nurtured through creative expression. A mural-size selection of weekly classes gives children age 2–10 the chance to channel their artistic impulses onto mediums other than the blank canvases of kitchen walls and diapers. Sessions for tenacious two-year-olds and their caregivers include an animals class (a $60 value) in which young Jane and Jack Goodalls produce fridge-worthy pieces based on different aspects of the animal kingdom. The 3-D art class for kids age 3 and 4 (a $70 value) allows kids to create multidimensional robots, rainbows, and flowers that can be viewed without dorky glasses or an overpriced ticket. Painting class (a $75 value) teaches budding old people age 5–10 how to wisely wield colors, a skill that's integral to eventual careers sorting Skittles.
All children are welcome in Noah's Art classes regardless of experience, and the studio's impressive student-to-teacher ratio ensures that each aspiring Picasso and O'Keefe is nurtured to his or her fullest potential. Youngsters are also provided with splatter-proof smocks so that they may explore the trajectory of temperas uninhibited. Call to enroll.
Classes for 2-year-olds require the presence of a caregiver.
Fearlessly making art should always be fun. At Noah's Art, a process-oriented curriculum gives kids the tools they need to do so, teaching them how to use different mediums in order to foster individual creativity rather than be boxed in by specific projects. Hoping to inspire kids to explore their own creative ideas and impulses, classes are tailored to children as young as 2 and as old as 11; open studio time is also available for kids to drop in and work on projects.
