Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of self-reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve. Appreciate the figurative risks and transcendent joys of artistic creativity with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get one month of art classes for kids ages 4–16 (up to a $65 value) at South Broadway Art Project on South Broadway. Two Groupons may be combined for $130 worth of adult workshops, parties, or summer camps.
South Broadway Art Project is a non-profit art studio and gallery that uses art to teach people both young and old how to broaden their horizons and find creative outlets through a variety of weekly classes and workshops. With today’s deal, kids ages four to 16 summers can unleash their inner prodigy with a month of artistic instruction that helps them become more visually literate and aware of creative processes. In Totally Centered ($55), preschoolers and kindergarteners experiment with paper sculptures, photomontages, and silhouettes, and six- to eight-year-olds use the same media in Detail Detective ($60) as they learn to perceive the fine details of drawing clothes, buildings, moving parts, machines, and humans. Nine- to 12-year-olds cover the earth with plasters or watercolors that intermingle fantasy and reality in Dream Scape ($65). The teenage set (12–16), meanwhile, can hone their painting, drawing, and ballpoint-pen tattooing skills in the angst-friendly Teen Art Café ($65).
Artful adults can take advantage of the deal as well by combining two Groupons to cover workshops ($96 for six weeks, $128 for eight weeks) that teach more advanced artistic techniques such as sculpting, metal working, painting, and draping German parliamentary buildings in plastic. Those Groupons can also be applied toward a weeklong summer art camp ($150) for the kids or themed party events ($200 and up).
Conveniently located just blocks from Benton Park, South Broadway Art Project lets its students display the fruits and vegetables of their artistic labors at special gallery events, where they are occasionally indistinguishable from the latest modern-art acquisitions. Awaken the slumbering artisan in your offspring and give them the power to pump creative life into a pile of undead art supplies—forever destroying their dream of growing up to be a regional communications processor for a mid-sized pipe-parts distributor—with today's Groupon to South Broadway Art Project.
