The primary difference between arts and crafts is that art often makes a terrible investment and disappointing sandwich tray. Match form to function with today's Groupon: for $25, you get to choose one crafts session at the Magic Paintbrush in Alameda (a $50 value). You can redeem your Groupon for sessions in pottery painting, glass fusing, and mosaic, or for a two-hour class in painting or glass fusing techniques.

The Magic Paintbrush provides artistic recreation for people of all ages and skill levels. Pottery painters have a selection of plates, mugs, vases, and Disney bisque to decorate as well as access to stencils and other tools. Alternately, mosaic is great for crack-ups and scatterbrains, who are supplied with an array of frames, clocks, mirrors, and trivets on which to glue a menagerie of materials. Glass fusing is a more specialized process in which glued and layered glass shapes are ultimately flattened or fused in two kiln treatments, removing any evidence of broken vases.

Groupon customers can also elect a painting techniques class in which they will learn seasonal designs, strategies, and happy thoughts for different paints and brush types. A glass fusing class instructs in the creation of a variety of jewelry and glassware.

The Magic Paintbrush

The Magic Paintbrush’s fully stocked studio adds a thick brushstroke of creativity to everyday life, giving nascent Monets and Rembrandts of all ages the chance to craft artworks and celebrate occasions such as birthdays and bridal showers. Nontoxic paints in dozens of hues give corporeal form to the figures that dance through patrons’ imaginations as they size up their blank templates. The Magic Paintbrush also holds classes that teach students ages 7 and up useful techniques for crafting pottery, tiling mosaics, fusing glass, and sculpting papier-mâché statuettes from unpaid credit-card bills.

Customer Reviews

Owner is very friendly and good with what she does and partner teaching jewelry making is also very nice and patience with everyone in the class. I will recommend this to my friends for sure.

A very nice art studio with very nice people running it! For the specific class (glass fusing), remember to show all the materials that are available!
