Art is one of mankind's primal means of self-expression, along with dance, song, and entering 140-character disclosures into glowing rectangles. Embrace your instincts with today's Groupon: for $17, you get admission for one to a BYOB painting party at Paint Art & Party, located in the Coffey & Thompson Gallery (a $35 value). Check out the calendar for upcoming party dates and featured painting projects.
The staff of artists at Paint Art & Party helps guide brushers through the creation of unique works of art during gregarious BYOB painting parties. The two-hour parties transform blank 16"x 20" canvases into personal masterpieces as guests sip on wine, daub on colorful globs, and discover inner artists fraternizing with long-lost boondogglers. Each party creates a new work of art, and budding brushers can follow instructors step by step as they sling acrylic paint and artistic tips. Paint Art & Party provides all materials, including aprons, though guests should wear clothes they don't mind getting messy, such as the prom dress of an evil twin. By the end of the party, painters will have their very own masterpiece to take home, which they can reduce to wallet-size and show off to strangers in elevators.
