Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of self-reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve. Appreciate the figurative risks and transcendent joys of artistic creativity with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 toward various art workshops at The Paint Spot, located on 81 Avenue. You may use this Groupon's value toward multiple workshops.
The Paint Spot's upcoming array of art workshops spans several genres, media, and styles. A watercolour-portraits course ($35) teaches the unique skills necessary for creating a vivid and lifelike portrait of your pet mannequin, and the Chinese calligraphy course ($35) shows the technique of how to use a simple brush and ink to create a piece of art that flows freely, like a lazy chocolate river. Students can learn about the silkscreen process in a five-hour course ($60) that covers stencil-making methods, multi-colour registration, ink mixing, and printing on various substrates. Other courses include Coptic bookbinding ($60) and acrylic collage ($25), wherein budding artistes explore the textural effects of acrylics. Tax is included in this deal.
Staffed by experienced artists, The Paint Spot focuses on exceptional service and attention to detail. Employees can answer nearly any question concerning supplies, techniques, and how to wear a beret like Matisse, and the store stocks a venerable variety of high-quality art products.
Most supplies are included for workshops; you can inquire further when calling to schedule your workshop of choice.
