By age 8, John Stuart Mill had learned Latin and Greek and had written a political treatise barring those with no knowledge of Latin or Greek from his tree house. Enliven minds with today's Groupon for various adult and children's classes at family-learning center Play Boutique in Lake Oswego. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get four Learn & Grow weekly enrichment classes in the Creative or Fitness studios (a $60 value).
- For $27, you get one spot in Sips & Drips, an adult BYOB painting class, plus a $10 credit at the in-house Beeztro Cafe (a $55 total value).
To accommodate the creative endeavors of increasingly busy families, Play Boutique piques the interest of adults and children with a bevy of classes meant to both entertain and educate. Parents can take a supervision sabbatical with Sips and Drips, a BYOB adult-painting class led by a local artist and teacher who supportively guides aspiring artists through a step-by-step creation of their own individually nuanced re-creation of a sample piece of artwork. Painters spend three hours covering a 24"x36" canvas with quick-drying acrylic paints that ensure masterpieces will be ready for home display or romantic dinners the same evening. Before class, brush-wielders can buoy artistic journeys with a bite at Beeztro Cafe, whose petite plates are strewn with whole-grain pastas, low-fat greek yogurt, fresh fruits and veggies, and other healthful fare. Classes are currently scheduled for June 23, July 14 and 26, August 18, September 22, and October 19, all from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Learn & Grow's weekly classes engage children with an arsenal of activities under the watchful eye of licensed teachers certified in CPR and first aid. The Creative Studio leverages artistic prowess through art, music, drama, and photography, and the Fitness Studio exercises energetic bodies with ballet, yoga, soccer, martial arts, and other activities. Check the schedule for class times.
Play Boutique makes a thoroughly wholesome experience out of the classic childhood combination of snacks and playtime. Kids burn off energy in structured but creative educational play sessions, stopping for snacks made from ingredients such as Tillamook cheddar cheese, low-fat greek yogurt, and fresh fruits and veggies. Themed events often arrange for simultaneous parents' date-night entertainment and kids' activities.
