Art can express a variety of human feelings, from joy at the birth of a child to confusion at the birth of a man-child. Help your kids eloquently articulate their emotions with today's Groupon: for $90, you get two summer children’s art classes at The Art Park on East 29th Street (up to a $180 value).
The Art Park offers two- to three-day summer classes for potential Picassos from preschool to the preteen years. Sign your child up for a dynamic instructional duo that covers topics including drawing, sculpture, watercolor painting, printmaking, and adorable beret wearing (up to $90 each). Each class pairs technical skill development with high-interest topics, such as the Medieval Times class, in which kids draw kings, queens, knights, and jesters, as well as make a brooch out of recyclable materials (for ages 4–7, scheduled July 25–27 from 1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.), or the Design and Composition course to learn about historical theories of design such as the golden ratio of ancient Greece (for ages 8–12, scheduled June 13–15 from 1:00 p.m.–3:00 pm.). Each classroom cultivates a safe, noncompetitive environment where kids can take creative risks and produce a final major art project to take home and display above the household tire fire.
The teachers at The Art Park have extensive training and school experience, and utilize the patented Monart method to teach the basics of drawing and observation. All shelves at The Art Park are stocked with high-quality materials, so that kids’ miniature masterpieces will look their best and last until they're auctioned at Sotheby’s for college tuition.
