What You'll Get
If children aren't given an artistic outlet to express their emotions, they might grow up to scour the night for evil penguins while dressed as a giant man-bat. Reduce the need for a double life with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 toward classes or drop-in hours at Studio 4 Art in Novato.
With classes spanning a wide variety of artistic mediums and included supplies, Studio 4 Art's team of talented teachers fosters personal growth and creative thinking for preschoolers through teenagers. Phalanges 5 years and older can learn to feed hungry machines in sewing classes ($69–$138/four classes), resulting in self-made pillows, animals, and hats for pet rocks. Painting classes explore watercolors, acrylics, and oil-painting techniques ($107/four classes), and aspiring potters can throw clay in wheel classes ($69–$107/four classes). Drop-in hours allow budding beatniks an outlet to create spur-of-the-moment masterpieces in the medium of their choice, so parents can run errands or finally get a turn on the monkey bars. Check the schedule for class times.
