Paintings are a window into the artist's thoughts, from Pollock's chaotic canvases to the little frowny faces on each star in Starry Night. Paint it out with this Groupon.
$22 for an Acrylic-Painting Class ($120 Value)
Fast drying and water resistant, acrylic paints possess a texture and a brightness that sets them apart from watercolors or oils. During a three-hour session, students aged 6 to adult receive frequent one-on-one instruction as they create their own acrylic painting on canvas to take home. Classes run from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday–Saturday and include all materials.

As kids and adults work at easels or across large tables, the spacious studios are filled with carefully designed lighting and soft classical music.
