A child shows early signs of creativity by artfully spilling ice cream and denying that a pacifier is a pacifier. Nurture future artistic genuises with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 toward art classes or a birthday party at Red Bird Art Studio on Third Street. This Groupon may be used toward the cost of any birthday party, up to three drop-in classes, an eight-week course, or one week of March break or summer camp.
Offering budding Rembrandts a healthy lineup of workshops and visual art classes, Red Bird Art Studio teaches art to youngsters of almost all age groups in a positive, pleasurable environment. Adhering to no-negativity and no-berets-indoors rules, the artistic experts at Red Bird Art Studio welcome kids of all skill and experience levels to meet Lewis, the official studio dog, and acquire basic skills in painting, sculpture, scrapbooking, digital media, and other art forms. Weekly classes include Sculpture ($140 for eight one-hour classes), which takes kids in first–third grade on a tour of various statue-making materials and techniques, and Digital Art ($160 for eight classes), which treats sixth–eighth graders to a carnival of digital media methods that include Photoshop, digital photography, and the use of tablets to create electronic masterpieces. Parents can also get in on the watercolour action by enrolling their 12- to 36-month-old tyke in Red Bird Art Studio's Tiny Tweets class ($140 for eight one-hour classes). The eight-week course allows parents to complete a different project with their child each week using various materials, including fingerpaints, clay, and coins found behind ears.
Red Bird Art Studio can also bring creativity and colour to kids' birthday events with a three-hour party experience (typically $10/child, maximum of 12 children). A Red Bird Art Studio party experience includes a specific hands-on artistic project for the partiers, such as making custom silk-screened T-shirts, canvas paintings, or beaded jewelry, as well as a special gift just for the birthday boy or girl. For an extra fee, Red Bird Art Studio's troupe of artistic avengers can also provide artsy party accessories, such as goodie bags, party invitations, and loft apartments with mismatched furniture.
