Like a wine tasting, successful painting requires a grasp of the basics, a steady hand, and the willingness to end up drunk in a stained shirt. Color your canvas constructively with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a paint class at Posh in Boulder (up to a $40 value).
At Posh, socializing and learning amalgamate with beginner-oriented classes in which students carouse while creating take-home paintings. In the 2- to 2.5-hour classes, local artists lead participants through step-by-step instructions as they create the selected painting, which may be anything from a work inspired by Van Gogh's legendary Starry Night to a depiction of a bouquet or a nighttime cityscape. While pigment slingers design their takes on the selected painting, they're encouraged to socialize, seek help as needed, and if desired, they can purchase beer ($3/bottle), champagne ($5/glass), or a mimosa ($5/glass) for mid-painting tippling. One glass of house wine is included with this Groupon. Brushes, easels, aprons, paint, and canvases are provided for students, providing ample time to perfect drawn-on mustaches and jaunty beret tilts pre-class.
Although most classes are adult-oriented, Posh also leads family centric classes geared for parents and children to paint together. Customers can also peruse Posh's boutique for local artists' creations, merchandise, and jewelry, all available to Groupon holders at a 10% discount.
