Clothes, the fabric of "the man," are the shackles of society that prohibit uniform tanning, elongate airport security check-ins, and irritate sensitive knee-pits. Draw your support for clothing-liberation with today's Groupon: for $15, new students get three live figure-drawing classes at Philbrook Museum of Art (a $30 value).

Every Thursday night from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., the Philbrook provides open-studio life drawing and instruction to give adult artistes a chance to stretch their sketching skills with bare human forms. The year-round class, facilitated by Richard Rich, is designed for intermediate and advanced artists with proper brush-to-paper dexterity and the ability to capture the emotional resonance and vulnerability of any model's Achilles talon. If you're a blushing beginner trying to get over an aversion to bare ankles, visit the first class of the month, when artist Rhonda Davis takes over for Rich and offers basic instruction and techniques for drawing live models. Humans are born naked because mohair sweaters would overheat in the womb, so return to the purest state of human design with today's Groupon to Philbrook Museum of Art.

New students only. Must be 18 or older. RSVP required to attend class.

Reviews

Though the art classes don't have any specific reviews, 10Best.com lists the Philbrook Museum of Art as one of Tulsa's best attractions:

  • Be swept away by Italian Renaissance paintings, captivated by Native American artwork, and inspired by 20th century American art.

Three Insider Pagers give the museum a perfect five stars, and five TripAdvisors give it 4.5 stars. Three IgoUgo reviewers give it a solid four-star average:

  • Great place to go and learn about art, plenty of famous artists paintings and art, great for kids to go on a field trip. Enjoyable for any age... – Anonymous, Insider Pages
  • Outside of the home are spectacular gardens. They include a pretty Rock Garden and Water Garden. The gardens can be viewed without paying admission to the museum, and they are worth a visit on their own. – hersplash, IgoUgo

Philbrook Museum of Art

Since its founding 75 years ago in a graceful 1920s mansion, Philbrook Museum of Art has grown to become one of the preeminent art museums of the central United States. The cornerstone of its permanent collection is its wide-ranging survey of Native American art, from traditional basketry to 20th-century paintings. Other highlights include Renaissance and Baroque paintings from the Kress Foundation and an American art collection including 15 paintings by Andrew Wyeth.

Outside, the museum's 23 acres of grounds includes a lush garden whose trails run alongside native Oklahoma plants and plants that relocated to Oklahoma after college. An architectural addition features an auditorium, restaurant, library, and education studios, many of which host the Philbrook's interactive, enlightening programs and events. In the summer, these include daytime art camps for six- to 12-year-olds and a nighttime film series that screens features in the garden. The Philbrook's growing modern and contemporary art collections can be found at a satellite campus in downtown Tulsa, which also contains the Eugene B. Adkins Collection and Study Center of Native American Art.
