Without painting, capturing still-life images usually involves taping bowls of fruit to a blank canvas. Try a beautiful alternative with today’s Groupon to The Royal Canvas Painting Parlor. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get one children’s painting class (a $30 value).
- For $20, you get one adult painting class (up to a $45 value).
At The Royal Canvas, both adults and kids can draw on previous painting experience or get their brushes wet for the very first time with a wide variety of classes. Children's classes give young ones a postschool creative outlet that doesn't involve drawing mustaches on statues of Jimmy Carter, and adult classes encourage creative mingling with a strict BYOB policy. Each themed class is geared toward recreating a specific painting from the schedule. The palette-handed professionals guide pupils aged three and older in the recreation while subtly sprinkling them with nuggets of painterly knowledge, such as how to create an impressionistic image and which combination of colors is the most edible.
The Royal Canvas Painting Parlor
At The Royal Canvas Painting Parlor, owner Cassie Black and her staff of art instructors teach painters of all skill levels to create canvas-bound masterpieces. Each class blurs the line between artistry and social interaction, like when Leonardo da Vinci would bring the Mona Lisa to parties as his date. The focus falls on a predetermined painting composition, ranging from a quirky, cartoonish sheep for children's classes to re-creations of iconic works such as van Gogh's The Starry Night to challenge more adept artists. While students follow step-by-step instructions, they sip wine, nibble snacks, and rediscover their creative side.
