Artistic expression can take the form of a vibrant painting, a stunning sculpture, or front-yard hedges trimmed into the shape of longing. Let creativity blossom with today's Groupon to The Art Escape in Senoia. Choose between the following options:
- For $17, you get a one-hour BYOB painting class for one person (a $35 value).
- For $30, you get a one-hour BYOB painting class for two people (a $70 value).
The Art Escape's professional painters, each a previous instructor at The Master's Academy of Fine Arts, transform timid brush- wielders into confident artisans through relaxing tutorials. Share a bottle of wine among friends or forge new acquaintances by feeding neighbors' fruit hats with splashes of vino as you apply the final brushstrokes to your canvas. Each student will create color amalgamations from acrylic paints before filling a 16"x20" canvas with vibrant hues. Still-life recreations of nearby piles of pencils travel home with students after the class, ready to hang over couches or the face of one's spouse.
Groupon students are encouraged to attend classes Monday, September 26, 2011, through Sunday, October 2, 2011, as the studio will hold multiple one-hour classes per day. Customers are encouraged to reserve their spot in these special classes before September 24. Attendees examine the image of a sunflower, trying to capture its essence through precisely painted lines and a background detail of an encyclopedia turned open to its sunflower entry. Students can also apply this voucher toward any regular classes with subjects such as apples, owls, and the sweeping curve of President Taft's mustache. Call ahead to reserve a spot, as all classes have a limited number of students.
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.
