Creativity can strike at any moment, whether you're near a canvas and brushes or beside a slumbering strongman and many rolls of toilet paper. Learn to recognize opportune moments with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one evening of painting and a beverage at Splash on North Tejon Street (up to a $40 value).

Splash marries artistic endeavor with fine wines and microbrews in a friendly, vibrant atmosphere. Four broad white walls enclose the large studio space, peppered with paintings and murals from past sessions. Artistes-to-be will find themselves seated in front of an easel stocked with a blank canvas, brushes, paints, aprons, and life’s unanswerable questions. Class members are guided through the reinterpretation of a preselected painting by the artist-in-residence. Over the course of up to a three-hour session, the knowledgeable pigment pilot explains different types of brushes, paints, and brushstrokes. A bar flanks the wall at one end of the workshop, stocked with a selection of wines and local microbrews to put newly minted painters in touch with their tippling muses (average cost of $5 per drink). At the end of the session, mini-Mondrians and petite-Picassos will have created their own masterpieces to take home and anoint blank spaces or use to conceal a painting of a wall safe.


The Colorado Springs Independent featured Splash twice:

  • the venue aims to deliver "that awe experience" that [manager Eric] Schwers enjoyed in Atlanta — the feeling of being artistic, even just for a short time. – Bree Abel, Colorado Springs Independent


At Splash!, art and fun go together like canvas and paint. For three hours on Thursday and Saturday evenings, guests sip wine and local beer, listen to music, and meet new people while a resident artist guides them step-by-step through their personal take on the evening's painting. To make sure the subject is always fresh and unique, each evening's painting changes on a daily basis. Depending on the night they attend, guests may create anything from a landscape or city skyline to a row of autumn trees or a Van Gogh still-life. The acrylic paint dries fast, too, allowing fledgling artists to take their masterpiece home at the end of the night or trade them with their new friends. And this sense of socialization carries into the studio's unstructured activities as well—open-studio time where artists gather together to create their own one-of-a-kind masterpieces.
