Covering canvas in paint is the fourth most popular form of self-expression, right behind yelling, speeching, and inventing a secret language with a clone. Externalize the internal with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a one-hour painting class from The Art Escape in Senoia (a $35 value). Classes take place at Serenity Studios of Senoia in Studio D from June 20 to 26, starting at 5 p.m., 7 p.m., or 9 p.m. on weekdays; 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., or 5 p.m. on Saturday; and 3 p.m. or 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Acrylic paints in hand, The Art Escape's instructors and students practice basic techniques, coloring canvases that pupils are free to escort home. Experienced teachers illuminate each session, supplying all necessary paints, canvases, brushes, and smudging low-fives. For this block of classes, students will create a composition of a poppy flower with the motivational theme of random acts of kindness. No more than 10 aesthetes can attend any class, allowing all students to get a slice of the woefully inedible personal-attention pie.
The Art Escape
In The Art Escape’s student gallery, dozens of burgeoning artists proudly smile beside their work. Through painting parties and a calendar of regular classes, the studio's instructors ease students into the creative process with step-by-step instructions that result in a complete painting to take home or sneak into the local art museum to see if anyone notices. In these structured yet creative sessions, small groups of artists unholster their brushes to have fun while gaining confidence in painting fundamentals. Floral arrangements, still lifes, and nature scenes emerge from surprisingly simple techniques, ready to stand proudly on the wall of any room.
