What You'll Get
Painting gives humans a necessary outlet for imagination, which if not released, can manifest itself into a date-ruining desire to sculpt a self-portrait of mashed potatoes. Use your imagination responsibly with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a "Bottles n' Paint" BYOB painting class for two at SunDust Gallery in Mesa (an $80 value). Classes are held on most Friday and Saturday evenings throughout the summer.
During two-hour BYOB painting lessons, students laugh, chat, and sip beer or wine while beautifying 16" x 20" blank canvases. Fermented refreshments help unlock painters' creative cortexes as they're guided by simple step-by-step instructions from a friendly, professional artist. During each class, students create personalized versions of the same painting—whether it's a stunning sunset, a sad clown, or a sad clown being stunned by a sunset. Painting pupils are outfitted with all necessary materials including paint, brushes, corkscrews, cups, and snacks. After the class, painters depart with works of art suitable for dressing up empty mantels or decorating enormous scrapbooks.
Participants should arrive 15–20 minutes before class to relax, socialize, and prime painting pistons. Before classes begin, students can seek inspiration by perusing SunDust Gallery's collection of works from more than 130 local artists and several highly trained local computers. The gallery is nestled in Historic Old Town Mesa near the Mesa Arts Center, the Arizona Museum for Youth, and an assemblage of restaurants, bistros, and coffee shops.
