Before art, the people expressed emotion by either attacking a punching bag or hugging a punching bag. Express yourself reasonably with today's Groupon to Pastimes for a Lifetime in Valley Glen. Choose between two options:

  • For $10, you get an Intro to Drawing Art Lesson and project kit (a $20 value).
  • For $50, you get an Intro to Drawing Art Lesson, project kit, and four additional classes (a $100 value).

For more than 20 years, Linda Wehrli has opened her studio to teach humans of all ages how to express themselves creatively. Each student receives personal attention and is encouraged to work at his or her own pace. The Intro to Drawing Art Lesson includes use of the studio's supplies and a project kit that students can take home to practice what they have learned by painting monocles onto the faces of neighborhood cats. Pen, ink, and painting classes can be taken by those who choose the option with four additional classes. Linda's one-hour art class schedule, curriculum, and enrollment info are available online and at the Library of Congress.

Pastimes for a Lifetime

Linda Wehrli has raw talent. Since age 5, she has re-created her world through drawings and paintings and has channeled her sense of self-expression through playing the piano, abilities that led her to study formally with instructors from Juliard and Cal State Northridge. Now, with her works hanging in private collections, Linda passes on her knowledge to students at Pastimes for a Lifetime.

She teaches students of all skill levels and ages—6-year-olds to seniors—to hone their creativity into life-like or abstract drawings and paintings. Her classes aim to build a foundation of aptitude in one particular medium, such as drawing with pen or charcoal or painting with oils or acrylics—and the necessary supplies can all be purchased at the on-site art shop.

Tapping into her musical talents, she also helms piano lessons, teaching students to read and play music. Her confidence-building approach helps beginners and advanced players alike become better musicians, and inspires those once spurned by a piano that wouldn't settle down to become reacquainted with their abilities. To further their studies, pianists can go home with a book she co-published with her husband.
