Artists always want muses without realizing they are a big responsibility, demanding regular walks, a ticket to every sunset, and smoothies made of old pastels and Greek yogurt. Cultivate your creativity an easier way with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a painting class at Paint by the Glass in West Chester (a $35 value).
Paint by the Glass awakens inner artists with its creative-juice-capturing combination of painting classes and libations. A local artist will guide aspiring paint slingers of all experience levels through each stroke, helping them create a piece fit to take home and proudly display on their mantel, refrigerator, or near their prized collection of Ewok teeth. In between dabs and daubs, students can lubricate throats and abstract-expressionist expressions with hors d'oeuvres and glasses of wine or beer, which can be purchased at Paint by the Glass's small bar. All materials are provided, and participants can choose among several different painting classes, which include subjects such as self-portraits, landscapes, and accurately capturing the disembodied spirit of James Madison.
