Before the invention of art, humans had to express themselves in primitive ways, including yelling, throwing things, and talking through pterodactyl feelings-puppets. Celebrate the development of creative outlets with this Groupon.
$45 for a Beginner's Painting Party for One (up to a $69 value)
At the studio, which was featured on Kourtney & Kim Take New York, students discover their inner artist. Beginner's painting parties coax out participants' inner Rembrandts as they learn step-by-step painting techniques and leave with a finished magnum opus depicting flowers, landscapes, or abstract scenes. Students need to bring their own canvas for the three-hour shindig, with the studio offering discounted canvases; all other supplies are provided. Check the schedule for class times.
The Art Studio NY LLC
Internationally exhibited contemporary painter Rebecca Schweiger could let her dreamy forest landscapes and densely textured abstract oils speak for themselves. Instead, she constantly reaches out to other budding artists, helping them represent their own authentic voices in paint, through 11 years in her Upper West Side studio, The Art Studio NY. Schweiger's work with pupils in locations from Costa Rica to Israel to Texas inspired her to open her own studio, where she and her team of instructors lead students through more than 70 workshops and classes for all ages in painting and drawing landscapes and tastefully nude fruit. The Art Studio NY has received multiple press mentions, and also hosts corporate events, birthday and bachelorette parties, kids and adult art classes, and many of their classes are for total beginners. In addition to this, they have been on ABC, NBC, and The Kardashians.
